    Truckee to Foresthill

    Soda Springs Rd, from the foresthill side its 25 miles to the end. Just up the road from the sugar bowl gondola parking lot. 25 mile dirt double, the twisties out of foresthill are pretty fun too. Ive linked up that & the old tunnels & trails above donner into truckee. I do the ride a few times a year to visit my buddy in incline.

    Tents & trials bikes dont mix well

    Thanks for the video treeman, didnt see it in the other link. Serious whisky throttle on that one.
  3. Saw this on another forum, poor guy... Old dudes, perhaps some beer, and campground riding dont mix.

    KTM 690 to do Baja 500

    Looks like they took second place, not back for a first run bike. A few more pics from the guys on another forum. I like the tank design, 5 gallons & low. One of the guys posted this: The pics posted don't tell the whole story... We just got back from the Baja 500. There were three 690 'development' bikes used for pre-running. Chris Blase, David Pierson, Cyril Despres were the team riders. Without boring the list, at RM100 Pierson passed 1x and put about a 8min lead on the Honda. I am told the Honda radio frequency went a little nuts with the 1x rider exclaiming that he had been passed like he was standing still, or something like that... A stop for a mechanical later slowed the bike, and some time was lost. My wife and I ran KTM Pit 5 on the beach in Erindira, RM 310. 1x came by about 18min ahead of 7x. Cyril pitted and only took about 2gal of fuel. Cannot comment on the final results as they are not posted yet by SCORE, but at dinner last evening, we are expecting a firm 2nd. Not bad for a new bike first time out, eh? We are hoping to improve these results in November... Pics to follow...

  6. I posted in the pics & vid section, it deserves a spot here too. http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=512878 Nice looking bike, lets hope a 690 enduro is in the works like this one soon. Since reports on the 690 SM have been coming out an enduro model would be sweet. Id buy a street legal enduro version over the SM.

    KTM 690 to do Baja 500

    I agree the race version will have more then 65, but so far the public is only going to get the 690 in SM trim with a rated 63hp. The 690 Baja wont be 400lbs either, like someone else mentioned. Lets just hope KTM brings the Baja or enduro 690 to market in street legal form. There is talk of a 690 Dakar or Rallye version also. Too bad they started with the 690 SM for the showroom, Id rather have the Baja. Found a larger shot of the other side:
  8. Nice looking bike, should be a street legal 690 enduro in the works like this one soon I hope. Since reports on the 690 SM have been coming out an enduro model would be sweet. One step down from the 950 Super Enduro. 950 has about 100hp, the 690 about 65.

    Riding The Rincon Trail The Hard Way

    Another ride report turned into a silly bashing thread. Appreciate the post for what it is. If you feel the need to bash threads/riders with one liners, or single paragraph, mile long rants, please think twice before you post. In an effort to keep the thread open I deleted all the nonsense and nonsense quotes (43 posts). Please keep it clean. Thanks. PS. Thanks for sharing the pics & report.

    How long...?

    I think its 60-90 days, might even be 30 now. Check the website like Maurice suggested. Also, when you decide to go in, make an appointment online first. In & out in 15-20 mins VS an hour plus. Welcome back...!!!
