    It came with some FRONT springs which I believe are stock (but I have no way of knowing and the guy wasn't sure either. But I would be interested in some rear suspension.....

    Man we had a heck of a ride.

    Sesquatchie never ceases to show you a good time.

    Cover a lot of ground... fast.

    We had a really good group. Rode fast. Nobody got misplaced or fell back....just kept moving all day.

    There wuz 6 of us that rolled out of Coalmont.

    New guy Brian...

    The mud was just thawing as we started. And it was WET. It was super slick till about 2 hours after we started riding. I think all of us learned how to ride with our front wheel on the hogsback and the rear wheel in the rut.

    The group really never stopped and there wasn't much carnage so there I didnt get many pics.

    Came across some timber trouble. Twist and T13 made qwick work of it

    That little hand chainsaw Twist had really cut thru fast.

    We were going down theis muddy rut and my bike stopped rolling.

    Took us a while to figure it out. One of the links in my chain wasn't "bending' like it should so when it came around the front sprocket it was sbumped up a little but and wouldn't make it past the clutch guard. Weird that the smallest little thing could stop a bike.

    It was a nice day for lunch outside at the Palmer store.

    We took of down into the gulfs. The water was a little high and the lines were all messed up from high winter water levels.

    Other than that it was uneventful. A good ride with good riding buddies. I don't think there are any more pics or vids. That's pretty much it.

    Ha! Your lucky there was a camera malfunction and your dive into the river sized creek wasn't caught. I'm sure we'll see some before and after though... ;)

    After I get more experience off-pavement, I live down near the Dirt Devil, and would love to join ya'll. Dean-o and I rode a little bit of it yesterday and did the four creek crossings on Porters Branch Rd and two crossings on Old Lick Creek Rd. I like to stop for pictures, though. I don't want to hold anyone back. [​IMG]

    True that:evil

    Lucky S.O.B., that I Hate Farting is......I will post up MY version of the ride and vids/pics shortly:lol3
    Damn - looking back at his river run, I must have been laughing so hard I hit the stop button on the cam right when he decided to snorkle. Needless to say, I do have enough to patch together.

    Also, needless to say, me bum is a wee bit sore today!! Wow - what an awesome ride!!!! And like I Hate Farting said - great group - all 6 rode their quevos off!!

    Good old Sequatchie, never ceases to amaze......always an adventure.

    No broken bones or bikes is our mantra.....and we were able to again live up to it. Mud (lotsa mud), water (deep water), snow, ice, rocks, sand, leaves, limbs - it had everything yesterday.

    BL showed up with his mac daddy rig.....looking back on the day, we would have been better served tossing a cooler full of beers in this puppy and using this to ride around Sequatchie, rather than our poor dirt bikes.

    The obligatory overlook picture, only a couple miles into the day. Ahhhhh, they're all so fresh, with no idea what is about to hit them in the gulf. Warm, dry............heeee heeeeeee heeeeeeee.

    This 2013 KTM 350 EXC was brand spanking new 24 hours ago.

    Okay - so, we all have our regrets in life. One of my biggest came yesterday.
    Any of you that ride with IHF know that he is gifted at capturing your missteps on camera. So when the rest of us get that opportunity to film IHF, we dont want to miss it.
    The six of us ended up on an island in the gulf with the river flowing around us....we had no choice but to cross the damn thing a second time....or spend the night in the gulf. I dont know what way you sway, but I wasnt gonna sleep there, spooning with IHF.......especially a sopping wet IHF - YES the best trail boss in the biz was sopping wet :lol3
    This is his first run up the river - had to run up the current about 50 feet then attempt a cross over in some deep stream.
    <iframe width="640" height="360" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/BR5f5ajXLVk?feature=player_embedded" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    So, this is where my regret comes in. I continued video-ing......and I Hate Farting went blubb blubb blubb - he decided to go snorkeling and explore the depths of the Sequatchie underwater caverns......KERPLOP!!!!
    I was LMAO so hard, my gut hurt - and I must have mistakenly hit the stop button on the cam. GAWD!!!! Getting IHF on video dumping his bike is like filming Big Foot a second time (we wont go into that here) - rare moment.
    In any case, here's proof he snorkled.....poor wittle IHF, all drippy drippy wet.
    <iframe width="640" height="390" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/YhadcNQ2z5s" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    "OH GOD - WHY ON EARTH DID I DO THAT. Ahhhhhh......and BFT RECORDED ME...............AHHHHHH. Oh, I'm getting cold......wet clothes, guppies in my boots.......my garbage bags are full.......as are my panties............AHHHHHH.......my vented Klim helmet doesnt just let air in.....but also water........lotsa water..............ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...........my elephant ears...........my poor elephant ears!!!!!!!!!"
