    Okie you might also try the Indian Road on the west side of Lake Tenkiller. I like to ride the south end from the county line to Highway 10A. Fantastic!

    Ok...if you were a REAL KTM fan, your leg would be orange carbon fiber. Just sayin...:lol3

    Serious question though...how do you use the rear brake?

    And I'll close by offering a big :beer for continuing to ride. :super

    hi soldier guy .... yeah im debating adding a little orange to the leg ...... as for the rear brake , i took the lever off as i couldnt tell if i was pressing down on on it or not , so no rear brake at the moment , i am about to get a "clake" clutch brake ... which operates both on one lever ... just google it for info .... ..

    Your comment makes no sense. Care to explain? FWIW the bike runs, rides, handles(for what it is) and stops great. no complaints at all from me.

    radial spokes don't deliver torque to the rim effectively, as the torque vector is perpendicular to the spokes... that applies to both torque from hub braking and engine acceleration. so that torque is causing the spokes to 'wind up', and they likely will fail a lot sooner than normally spoked wheeels, where the spokes come off the hub flange at near a tangent angle.
