    Can a ktm 690 Enduro R do single track?

    Cool to see this thread still alive [emoji16] Spring has sprung ... who's in utah? Let's plan a ride.

    Totally agree with everyone's comments about riding tough trails on a light weight purpose built bike. And I love my current yz250x and previous yamaha 450f, ktm 350, 300, 200, 520, etc. These are all great bikes and super capable. 690's not the fastest or best everywhere, I just get the giggles pushing a big bike through the trees and rocks. Makes me smile [emoji16]

    AF Canyon is likely still passable. Maybe some snow at the top but most has melted off after the last storm. Going over the top past tibble fork and down to cascade spings is a big wide 4 wheel drive dirt road. Worst case is a u-turn. Best case is a cool ride up to 8500ish feet through the forest [emoji16]

    Deep sand single track on a 690 ... nice! My advice is to add 2-3 clicks of compression especially on the front forks. Then like already said, go in a little hot, turn early, and roll the throttle on as you hit the apex. This'll help and it'll be loads of fun. Just be careful trying to keep up with the light purpose built bikes. 690s are capable but aren't as flickable or forgiving.

    Yup, Utah.

    Answer is YES! Over the weekend my 690R superbly handled twisty mountain roads, 4 wheel drive dirt roads, two track and YES single track. All in one day! I think I'm in love [emoji6]

    Lake Mountain Utah

    I'm in town this week and out the next. Maybe Saturday the 21st? Diamond Fork is much longer than Hobble Creek with a few more obstacles. Nothing too crazy.

    I'm game. Most of my riding is on Saturdays. If the fire hasn't burned down diamond fork, I'd like to ride center trail or three forks ... this coming Saturday or in two weeks.

    Seems like rain saturday morning. Might clear up by afternoon. I'd be game after the rain stops.

    Spring Break Moto Style (+Mavic Pro Drone Footage)

    It's been great fun to watch my boys learn to ride. By this time next year Matthew may be on a full sized bike. Then it'll be all I can do to keep up with his dust. His older brother slows up so I don't feel too bad. [emoji6]
  12. Mix spring break, a couple of dirt bikes, and a father and son, what do you get? Probably the best week of fun you can legally have [emoji106] Our iteanrry was hitch the fifth wheel, fill it full of pizza and ice cream, load the bikes, and ride till the gas runs out We found a really cool section of single track near the peak just north of the Sage riders pits (got some Mavic Pro drone footage). This was one of Matthew's first rides on his KX100 into the higher hills at Cherry Creek. He did pretty well over the rocks and hill climbs. Enjoy!

    Cherry Creek Utah - Saturday Ride

    Weather's looking good for the weekend. My and I are planning to ride cherry creek Saturday afternoon. We'll stage in the firebirds pits and ride the surrounding area. I'm riding a YZ250X and my son's on a KX100. Open invitation to any that'd like to join. Here's a video from last year with some of the trails we're planning to ride: Post here or send me a pm.

    Moab Fins-n-Things -- Video!

    LRB -- We did have a blast! Can't wait to go back and do it all over again. Next time around we'll likely warm up on fins-n-things and then head over to kane creek. Don't we have it great here in Utah? So many types of terrain to ride and with a little travel time, the riding season can go 9-10 months of the year. Just awesome!
