Beta

Chris, thanks. I plan to call Get Dirty tomorrow.
What is your elevation? I'm at sea level on the Gulf Coast (Debbie). Looks like you have the Leo Vince. Will It make a difference in jetting?

Further info

I rode the Mobile Bay ferry today with several diehard KTM fans. Beta is probably out. 690 seems to be leading. 500 EXC is a contender, but not for a 3+ hour ride to trails.
