Kiska enduro day 2011

Had a great ride today with a load of people from kiska. Once a year we all pitch in a 100 euro or so to get some bikes from KTM and go riding together.

Usually enduro though which is not really my thing as much as Motocross but it’s fun too, despite the lack of jumps. We had some KTM EXC 250 F’s (brilliant engine and handling but as stock the suspension was way too soft for me), some EXC 350F’s (super powerful motor, loads of torque and must be great on long rides, but I prefer my bikes a bit lighter and higher revving) and a 250 2 stroke EXC which had been tuned and set up properly and was absolutely brilliant.

I spent 90% of my time on the 2 stroke because it was just so light and nimble but still had a strong motor. Really excellent bike. I guess the SX version is even better too.

Anyway, I’m completely knackered so am going to finish up. Another guy at work took a load of photos when I and everyone else was riding so will put some of them up next week if any of them are good. For now, I just have some photos I took of Zacher and Chris Haupthaler on their own SX’s.

Ok, found one of me, not sure who took it.

    Dude, everything is aching on me today. Kinda sorta feels nice though. I wanna ride again soon, but after getting a quick idea how much better your SX Is I definitely would rather ride an SX than an EXC.
