This course sounds very intriguing, I hope I have an opportunity to run it on the GS or Tiger.
Won’t be fun. Too tight and sandy. The trails needs a lighter bike that can be laid over and a gs certainly is not that bike. It’s doable but won’t be fun like it is on a light, long travel bike with good steering. Prove me wrong. I take it all back. It will be so fun.

I've heard he can ride the heck out of the tiger and gs.

I’ll bring my gs out also, with both side boxes and top box. I still have repairs to make from my COBDR run on it.

What I learned from my COBDR trip on the gs is not whether I can do it on the big bike, but whether I would enjoy it more on a more appropriate bike. I chose the KTM500 XCW for the NMBDR as a result. Best decision.

Oh yeah, remember the difference in my ride at Aspear on my 500 and my YZ450? Night and day.

What was the difference? Inquiring minds wanna know....
For tight woods with sandy turns a lighter, less bulky bike is better. A KTM200 would be best bike at Aspear IMO. The 500 was too soft up front; my DOT Metzeler tires are awesome for dual sport but not best in tight sandy turns; the 40 gallon tank is too bulky; I have bar risers for standing but ride much more seated at Aspear.

Looks like it’s gonna be super hot/humid Sunday. Are we planning the usual 9am KSU?

For those of us with kickstands 🤪

Yes. No pain no gain. I know you will be here earlier so I can fix your scooter...again...
