    I picked up a TE511 to replace my highly worn out LC4 640. This bike is much more of a dirt bike and that's exactly what I wanted. I've got about 500 miles on it so far and really enjoying it.

    Here's a crappy, but fun video.

    I just said crappy as the lighting was all wrong and the quality isn't as good as some of my other videos. Still fun to watch though!

    thanks for the great comments! :clap

    Howdy Steve,
    Nice video. :clap I can learn a few things from you about video editing. :deal

    If you haven't heard, I retired last November. I'm making my first trip (of several) up to West Yellowstone with stuff tomorrow and will be there all summer. The stuff includes a KTM 400XC which should be a little better than the 950 for Montana single track. When all the nasty white stuff melts, let's get together and ride, etc. :freaky

    Hell yeah Steve! thump_co and I rode with this kid on a TC450 and it was a total ripper, made me want one (99% of it was probably rider). I'm sure the TE511 is even better for all the bad ass stuff up there you guys get to ride, a couple of those shots looked familiar from that one day we did get to ride together out Patrick Creek Rd.

    :clap
