Hi, I am a bit of a lurker, but finally joined a few days back. I have a history of riding a bagger and a klr, but I just bought an 03 ktm 300. I went to the motorcycle shop and to buy a helmet and I had enough for one other thing, so I asked the guy what would be the next most important safety item. He sold me some boots. I would like one of those neck braces sometime. Anyway, I haven't been on a full dirt bike in probably 15 years, the last one I owned was an '86 yz80. I almost high sided the ktm yesterday after about 2 minutes of riding it. I learned you can't just grab a handful of throttle because these things go EXACTLY when you tell them to, they don't take time to wind up. All that being said, I am going to take on a couple of the easier trails in moab this weekend. Hells revenge and fins and things. My wife will be driving in a sxs. And basic tips for taking a drop or climbing a ledge? I have been you-tubing, but some of the skills they talk about require quite a habit. Load the front end, gas it, lean forward, blip the throttle, etc. that's a lot of steps to remember on day one. Any advice?
