3 of us rode Cycleland Tuesday, extremely difficult to follow the trail this time of the year in places. Brown leaves are a foot deep! Cover trail and hide many a danger, lol.

In some trail sections C-Land is very dangerous. With the roots/holes and washouts having the leaves hide things it can be very very bad. I think several trails should be totally moved. Even the reversal each year no longer helps to "heal" them, just too beat.

Yeah, I think every time I saw you was a workday. My last three years of membership I only rode probably 3-5 times.

Did my 30 miles at Cycleland today. Very dry, but sand still not as loose as summer.

My riding partner showed up with this beauty.

EMS featuring an ECU controlling ignition timing and fuel spray based on information from sensors reading intake air pressure, throttle position, water temperature and ambient air pressure from an additional sensor for efficient altitude compensation.
Electronic oil pump feeds oil from the 700 cc oil tank to the intake to ensure a perfect fuel-oil mix under any condition while reducing smoking by 50% and providing up to 5 tanks of fuel.
Exhaust system provides improved performance with reduced weight and a more durable construction thanks to the innovative corrugated surface on the expansion chamber.

The 2021 is a Beauty compared with the 2020. Saw one last week in McKinney,.....I was tempted but mine runs so good compared to a stock KTM TPI, I refrained. Plus my wife said I need to refrain If know what's good for me,...and gave me a "wink" I get it.
Gorgeous bike looks even better on the dirt.

I tell people it's a Ktm that has Yamaha suspension and turns like a Suzuki. Bike world really well for me! Sherco should wrap up the National Enduro title this weekend in West Tx with Grant Baylor.

I've got a white KTM in the garage, I feel like I can rib them a bit.

Actually, all the real KTMs I've owned were reliable for the short time I had them, as I recall. And my one Yamaha that I owned did actually have terrible suspension.

I'm just not familiar enough with the other bikes to know what the reference means.

Did a little over 30 miles in SHNF today with local Beta/Sherco dealer. He was on a Beta 430, plated. Amazing how well that bike worked, even in the whoops. Hmm, lol.

Not sure if Ronnie has gotten faster(possibly, rides a lot), I'm just too big for 250 4 stroke (I'm 260 plus gear), just need a 450(good excuse), or have to face the music(I'm 69, this is as good as it's going to get, lol). Anyway he did a great job of keeping up.
