The 530 will do that ride all day long. 450 was good to go and I had the stock seat.

The great TAT ride

Well at least you are not in the rain. Looks like you got a new dual sport helmet.... how do you like it.

I have had enough street for a while... I cant imagine much on the KTM....
Buzz has no idea of pain... his ass is as hard as his head...

Good luck guys....

TET Day 3

Brett and I rode some of the nicest ridge roads, forest roads, mountain roads, twisty roads in the USA today!

We are in Franklin, NC for the night before heading back south.

Here are some pics from today (not in order).
