    I think it was before penton or alongside (at least not a copy.) Both Penton and Hercules were made in shops close to each other sharing similar components. Hercules was sold in the UK as a DKW. 7 speed sachs engine, marzoochi shocks, cerani forks. Made in w germany.
    It was used by isdt trophy team.
    They are very similar to a penton.

    One maybe, however I did ride:

    Two national dual sport rides or three if you count the fact that I also did the pre-ride of the Missouri national.

    Five dual sport rides but add a bunch more if you count riding Geneseo numerous times.

    Five multi day trips to Missouri riding single track.

    Spent a week riding in South Dakota

    Spent a week riding in Missouri and Arkansas

    Spent a week riding in Michigan.

    Plus all the little rides that add up.

    So all in all I put 63 hours and 1,584 miles on the KTM 500
    And 110 hours on the 300

    I know that’s all pathetically low in your eyes but remember I am 70 years old. I’ll try and do better next year.
