Another newb...sort of

Recommended Posts

A KTM newb to be specific. I have been riding XRs of all sizes for quite a few years. Last year, a riding buddy sold me a very nice '00 WR400, and although it took me a while to get used to it (pretty much different from the XRs), I have gotten to the point where I can handle it pretty well. But,........... after riding my buddy's '05 525 EXC earlier this week, I finally came to my senses and decided to go Orange. The 525 is like cheating, it sucks up the bumps, roots and grooves like they aren't even there and glides over the rocks like it is on rails. I got the red eye checking classifieds the last few days, and today, I bought a practically pristine '05 450EXC. I spent about three hours today riding and playing with the suspension and can't get enough of it. It doesn't handle quite as well as my buddy's 525, but it is close. I'll be lurking and soaking up knowledge and tips from you KTM experts.
