    KY Dual Sport Ride

    I agree as well. Awesome ride last year.... Unfortunately I will not be able to make it for Saturday but will be there for the Sunday ride.

    Steering Stablizers

    After installing one, don't leave home without it..... They are worth the investment. It has definitely saved me from hitting the dirt more than once and I do not like doing that......

    I don't understand

    I can understand your dilemma.... The 450EXC is a high performance machine with higher quality parts but the same context these parts are also stressed more as a result. In general, the KTM RFS is pretty bulletproof and requires the oil to be changed frequently and valves checked occassionally. I can honestly say my other "race bikes" have required a lot more TLC than the RFS. I like tinkering with the bike and keeping the maintenance up but I really like to ride more and to have this caliber of bike with reliability is the only way to go IMO. Hope this provides some insight......

    Check out their website www.trailsheaven.com but you can pick up permits at defined motels or at the trailhead. I have only ridden the Buffalo Mountain and Browning Fork trails. It is definitely a great place to ride and I cannot wait to go back.

    Anybody going to this? They are opening the place up for a Dec 9, 2006 ride. See the attached link. http://www.in.gov/dnr/outdoor/interlake/cleanup.pdf

    Last Man Standing

    Thanks for the update as well. I was disappointed that their web-site did not indicate standings, etc; however the TT board came through. I am looking forward to seeing the videos as well.

    Great Place to Ride in KY!

    For the record, Dunn's is an excellent place to ride regardless of your skill level. At age 48, I roll the jumps but the track still provides alot of riding opportunities to improve my skills. In this area we ought to be glad that someone is willing to make a go of a facility to provide a location for the off road community.

    400exc or 450 exc for woods?

    I had an 02 400 EXC and upgraded last year to an 06 450 EXC and if I had it to do over again, I probably would of gone with the 400 EXC but availablity was somewhat limited. I even thought about going to a 250 EXC but the 4-stroke is easier for an old guy.... The older 400's were geared way to high and for tight stuff the 14/52 combo was great. My couple of cents......

    Poor handling '07 EXC

    My 06 was definitely undersprung as I am similar weight to you especially as compared to my 02. After I changed the springs and added a steering damper, the bike is awesome.....

    tell me about going from crf250r to 450exc

    I did exactly what you are asking about and never looked back. I did some modifications on the R to make it woods compatible as I never ride tracks much. You will notice the weight difference but I can also leave the KTM in 3rd and pretty much use the throttle to accomplish my needs. I added a GPR steering stablilizer, which really helped the handling. Everything considered, I am much happier with the KTM and as mentioned, the maintenance requirements of the Honda were significant as compared to the KTM.

    06 ktm 400exc jetting

    My 06 450 EXC was lean and I was never able to get it operating with the existing needle, etc. so I went with the JD kit and that corrected the issue with minimal tuning.

    looking for place in Owensboro, KY for 6 year old to ride

    Panther creek area is pretty close but you would really need to have someone riding with them. Dunns MX Playground has a beginners track that is easily monitored, it is about a hour from Owensboro. http://dunnsplaygroundmotocross.com/

    New 450 EXC problem....

    Just curious if you had determined that you did have a head gasket leaking. The 06's are very lean and under some conditions will run anti-freeze out the overflow and it will catch in the front of the engine.

    Rode both days and about 190 miles. Good ride to say the least and kudos to the folks setting the routes.
