Re: Enduros?

Thanks folks! I'll be trying these ideas. I start chugging Gatoraid and chewing those Bloks gummy things about an hour before lining up. It's helped but I still need to get some relief about an hour in.


Now that's pretty doggone clever. I really like to see stuff that's built by folks who use it.

Re: Enduros?

I picked up a small enclosed trailer this weekend, will serve as bike transport & an Ocker camper. Either I'm committed or someone's going to get a great deal on used Enduro kit from my widow!

Have you been able to swing a leg over a 2017 KTM two stroke? It may not be a practical solution to change bikes, but I will say that they do not vibrate--it is uncanny. You wouldn't even need to ride one. Twist the throttle in neutral and it is a whole new ball game. The counter balanced KTM two strokes change the game for smoothness. Wait until 2018 and most likely they will be fuel injected as well. 2019 at the latest.

I made the switch to four stokes 16 years ago and am happy but the new counter balanced two strokes from KTM will make you think twice.
