Man, that was a good ride! I haven't been back on the bike since last July and I was definitely feeling it but I had a blast. I'm pretty sore today and last night both legs were going into spasms :ohmy: I'm glad I had the carpal tunnel surgery, my hand never went numb but now the other hand is so I'll get that done in the fall.

Gordon, I couldn't find you in the pits. At least I got to say hi when you first pulled in. I just rode loops 1 and 2 a few time and that was plenty!

Pretty good stuff there. You missed the bedrock section on loop 3, I thought that was pretty cool, but sure you didn't miss the mud in loop 1, man that was killer. We were parked in the back right of the parking area, kinda between the the start and end of loop 3...

Yeah the mud was a pain. My buddy just got a 2008 KTM 300 and he put a trails tire on the back. He loved it in the dry but hated it in the mud. Plus he's about 6" sort of being able to touch the ground.

Hey dave
Sorry we missed each other. Our group decided to run the choices backward so as to avoid the crowds. We started at 3 then did 1 so i'm sure that's why we didn't hook up. Tell your friend I have a friend who is going to be selling his 08 KTM 450exc which is setup for someone 5'6 with a 29 inch inseam. If he's interested i'm sure it we be resonably priced. The suspension is lowered and spring rate set for someone around 150-160 has a steering stabilzer, skid plate, brush guards,

Hi Gordon, My friend just bought the 300 but I told him about the 450 anyway. He is 5'6" too and it sounds perfect for him but he would never be able to convince his wife he needs another bike!
