but that was on a trip they took a few weeks ago, Dave's down there again (or back now?) with another FC riding buddy.

What kind of range does that 450 have Leigh? Wanna do a small bike trip down there?
I missed three different trips down there this year because of work....

I'm not sure what the range would be- it has a 4 gallon Acerbis tank, but it's a high strung 450 & not a KLX250 or even a KLR650. I would guess that it might get 35 mpg if I took it easy, so that's like 140 miles? i dunno- need to to do a street mileage test.

Baja? Hmmmm, I'll have to think about that!

That's what skis are for! Where the heck is the big storm is the question...

Amen on the lower fire danger. We got a reprieve on riding this week. I commuted 3 days, better than naught.

If the 450 is a KTM, then you get maybe 150 miles, maybe 130ish on hard single track. The KTM's (a 450, two 525's and a 690) were limited to less than 150 miles or less. The DRZ Valdez 400 was sitting on a half tank, 4.3 gallons in Baja when were adding fuel. Seems the mains on the carberated KTM's were a bit big at sea level.

Need 200 + mile range in the Baja.
