Must have not been "forced sale" as claimed. Removed and will relist in spring.
Sadly, most of our inch of snow has nearly all melted off, looks to be at least a another week before we can enjoy some glistening white beauty. Hope that helps.
I hears ya. On the silty soil and loamy dirt my gummy bear tire was a slippy nightmare. I would have had more traction on mud. Went to the truck and installed a nasty brute XT-754 with knobs that have all the softness of an old concrete brick. Bike was transformed into a monster of traction that inspired great confidence and joyluck double fortune happiness.
At McNutt, gummies are transformative on slippy roots, rocks, reggae...
Easier on the trails too. No need for the trailhacks to roost holes in front of the big roots when you can just tractor over them.
Stall climbing up a rock pile? No need to back up and take a run, just clutch nicely, weight properly and go.
I don't need the gummy, I know how to ride. However I still get tired after 4+ hours of relentless beating. One fuckup can really burn your energy if you have to roll your bike backwards down some tight, rooted, rocky trail with sides extending over your head in many places (old old old trails) by the time your bike has been manhandled down the trail, sometimes you can barely get the energy to kickstart the beast (cuz the KTM starter usually doesn't work when you're weary)
She's got game, and she's got a gummy
She Loves the Moto!!
We all saw how that worked out at Ruby Ridge........
Beef jerky, trail mix, dried fruit of some variety, water and a flask FTW.
Hahaha, our skeleton is still hanging in the picture window.
You shoulda pulled that Easter bunny down months before it rotted away!
I will kindly have to disagree with this, my KTM 500 would flame out at nearly any point before the euro tune and TPS adjustment. Absolutely dangerous and random, no amount of clutch work wood have prevented it.
No Diet Dr Pepper?
I didn’t buy a 500 so I’d have to clutch it like a 2T 125, the flameouts were totally unacceptable. Just sayin.
SIL had a 520 RS, grunty mofo, that was a proper 4T.
I ran the gummy tire out in Moab and I would probably toss one on for McNutt. I would not recommend one for riding around Yinzer-land or at Navin Motors test facility.
Seriously, what's a "flameout"? Fuel delivery cut-out or something?
I've stalled the Whirrrrrrr a gazillion times. Every single time it was a combo of bad clutch work and too little revs. It has never been the bike's fault.
Are you saying that stock bikes with stock EPA attempts are stalling out with no rider error? Entirely bike fuel management issues? What a POS...
