Crawdaddy - You are most likely going to LOVE your new KTM. My son bought one last February to race the Mexican 1000 last April. He'd never ridden the desert before, but he had a lot of road racing experience. The bike finished 4th overall motorcycle and won it's class. It made a top speed of 96mph on the playa and it was ridden flat out for much of the timed sections (about 950 miles). He's entered it again this year, but he might trade up to a 500 to try and compete for the overall.

Only problem was the Giant Loop kit disrupted the air flow so the exhaust melted off the rear signal.
