    EsconDeasy - KTM 530
    Gary_A - KTM 300
    alphaBETAdog - Beta 450

    Turns out that viper bought this 530 from Steve Hatch, who bought it from Gary!! There was a tearful reunion.

    Gary was giving viper a hand with his suspension setup.

    At the end/start of the ribbon trail. The guys that rode in decided to take the short way out and head for ZEN!! The guys that trailered in made a fast paced return to trucks and headed for ZEN.

    The mayhem at ZEN can be found here...

    Terry, I had a great time! Thank you for organizing and leading this!

    Gary, Thank you for the expert suspension tuning! The bike was much better on the return leg. I talked to Alan Stillwell and he confirmed everything you did.

    To the rest, thanks for the patience and advice as I work to shake the rust off after many years away from single track.

    Cheers,
    Tom
