Okay, it is finally posted. So check out my test on the new bike over at MotorcycleUSA. Make sure and look at both pages, one is the overview of the model line up and the other is the ride test. There is also a video that accompanies the story also.
I do have to add that I had a really rough time at the Wyoming National Enduro where we rode the bikes. I was really sick during the race and my results show it. It was really all I could do just to finish the day. But I got to ride with my buddy Patrick Koether from Rekluse so that was a bright spot. I also got to ride on the minute in front of Cycle World Editor Ryan Dudek who had an excellent day. He would come by me in every section flying. He was on the 250 XCF-W and had it pinned the whole day.
The race itself was really well laid out and had some good single track tests. KTM took great care of us. Can you imagine coming into a check and getting pitted by Mark Hyde? I kept thinking that this seemed backwards, he should probably be racing and I should be pitting for him. I am sure the result would have been better.
For now I am really looking forward to getting the 500 on my own turf so I can see what kind of desert racer it is going to make.
