How about a KTM with 4 wheels?



I was watching the BBC Top Gear today and they had one of these featured on the show. I guess it's been out since 2008 but I've never seen one... Europe only.
1550 lbs., 220-horsepower Audi engine, 0 to 62 in 3.9 seconds.

Why'd they time it to 62 and not 60? Is that some sort of KMH vs MPH conversion thing?

I can handle a few rocks but no roots!!!

Hey Bigbugberg, did you guys follow the same path more or less? Were our ruts still there from when we were throwing 20' rooster tails through that part of the flooded field near the cattle tank?

Maybe it was for a certain distance?

Here is the route if anyone is interested...

Northeast AZ May 2012

In the few instances where there were no rocks, I happened to snap a couple photos...











And here is Eddy's dust way in the background


Just don't tell any ATR guys I was riding rather than working the race!!!

New plastic?

Hey NS, that ride looks way too clean to be yours! What did you do, give it a bath? It's even all the same color!

When replacing rusty bolts on old bikes, (a 6mm x 10mm on my Trail 70 for example), is it recommended to use OEM stuff or can you replace it with regular bolts and washers from your local hardware store?

I usually take them to Ace Hardware & get the exact same ones.

I don't use OEM nuts or bolts unless they are of a special construction. Most sized metric nuts and bolts can be found at a good Hardware store such as Ace. Becareful to use the right size, length, and thread pitch. Metric washers are a real pin, an SAE washer on a metric bolt is usually too loose or just not big enough. I do a lot of business at "Mark's Nut and Bolt at 6710 West Belmont Avenue in Glendale, the guy has every bolt known to man and is inexpensive as well. I usually buy a stash of common sizes so I don't have to keep runnung back and forth.

Anyway, where do you jump off 89 to pick up that dirt road? Looks like a good ride.
