. That was phenomenal. I have a new respect for what that bike is capable of. I am sure it can't hurt that you were riding the wheels off of it. Great job

Oh yea and thank you. Now I have another bike I would like to have

Curious what gearing you're running? Sounds like you have Akra's?
If you're ever in Central VA look me up. We'll tear-up some fire roads

It was a first time for us trying this and at sign up I said "ADV class" and said we don't have an ADV class. I told him that we had already buzzed around and had the organizer/owner of Highland Park KTM World aware and he was all for it. So we had two 950R's and an HP2. The HP2 won, but both the other twins were ripping and making spectators smile along the way. I only survived a lap before my flat. I was running FMF's without SA's and the CPR intake. Still not as loud as a piped 450 though. Stock gearing and I think most prefer that. Thanks for the ride offer, same to you in North, GA.

Hope I answered all ?'s. I posted in OC too for the LC8 fans

One thing is you don't want to be behind one. I'll be back to do it again.

Great video. It looked you were racing and some of the guys were trail riding

You're lucky it wasn't the typical mud bog those races can be, you would have never survived. However, really excellent riding and had to be physical as all get out.

Nice Video and ride! Would be interested in knowing how to avoid flats. I have tried to find a set-up that works off-road as well as a bit of pavement riding. Been running 606's with heavy duty tubes and slime @ 18 PSI. They wear out fast, but are inexpensive and work well off road. What about rim-lock? Are you running one in rear? Thanks!

No rim locks yet. The Super Enduro does not come with rim locks and honestly I didn't even think about it unfortunately. I ordered rim locks and will run about 26 psi next time. Thought about the Bib Mouse's but don't have any experience with them. I ran Geomax intermediate tires and they are strickly off-road tires so I imagine they have weaker sidewalls than DOT tires. Probably should inquire to those who race 450 lb. bikes off road to see what they recommend.

Thanks for sharing that; brings back some great times. Between MX, Enduros and Hare Scrambles, the latter was the most fun, hands down!
