  4. Castro fish camp I haven't been there in years is the paved road that you take from the main road still in great shape? I remember thinking what's this road doing out here and were did it come from .
  5. Were to ride were to ride Two of my buddies and I are planning a trip to Baja next month I thought we knew were we wanted to go until you guys opened my eyes.It sound like the ridding down there is wide open. We were/are planning to go to the sky ranch and use it as a base for our 4 day trip . if you have any Ideas as to were we should go and ride let me know .I keep seeing reference to ridding on the road/highway can you really do that without finding yourself in a Mexican prison? one of our guys will be ridding a quad as for the me and my ridding Buddie we will be on 05 & 06 EXC 525s If any of you are planning a ridding trip to Baja in the next couple of months let me know I'ld like to see if my buddie and I can tag along we both live in So. Cal.and Live to ride. Thanks for letting me bend your ear, Ralph.
  6. I went in to the store to get the 06 EXC 525 and walked out with the 05 they are two close to pay the extra cash for .This 525 halls.very smooth and predictable. THE ONLY PROBLEM THAT I'VE HAD IS WITH IT IS THE KICK STAND . (AS TO KICK START ON THE STAND) IT SEEMS THAT KTM HAS DONE EVERY THING IT COULD THINK OF TO CUT DOWN ON THE WEIGHT OF THE BIKE THANKS KTM INCLUDING MAKING THE KICKSTAND OUT OF ALUMINIUM.I KNOW THIS SHOULD BE A GOOD THING .BUT IF YOUR A BIG GUY AS MOST 525 RIDERS THAT I HAVE MET ARE THEN JUST GO AHEAD AND BUY AN EXTRA ONE BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE SHOP.I HAD LESS THEN 1.5 HRS ON THE BIKE WHEN MINE FAILED .MAN I JUST COULDN'T BELIEVE IT ON A NEW BIKE .WELL STUFF HAPPENS BUT WHAT CAME NEXT REALLY PUT ME OVER THE EDGE .I WAS TOLD THAT KTM HAS BEEN AWARE OF THE PROBLEM SINCE 04 .HELLO THIS IS OCTOBER OF 2005 THEY WERE WILLING TO REPLACE MY STAND AFTER MUCH BANTERING BACK AND FORTH .THE DEALER RELAYED TO ME THAT I SHOULD NOT USE MY KICKSTAND WHEN I START MY BIKE THAT THE KICKSTAND WAS JUST TO KEEP THE BIKE FROM FALLING AND THAT IN THE FUTURE KTM WOULD TREAT THIS AS A RIDER ERROR ISSUE . I'VE BEEN RIDING SINCE I WAS 13 THAT'S OVER 30 YEARS AND THIS IS MY 3RD KTM AT THAT.I FIND THAT THIS TONE IS JUST UNACCEPTABLE .IF THEY CAN'T MAKE A KICKSTAND THAT CANT HOLD UP THE WEIGHT OF A RIDER AND THE BIKE THEN THEY SHOULDN'T PUT IT ON THE BIKE . SORRY FOR RUNNING ON LIKE THAT BUT THIS HAS ME TICKED. AS FOR THE BIKE YOUR RIGHT WHEN THE TIME COMES I'LL PROBABLY BUY ANOTHER KTM. IF THEY STEP UP AS GOOD CORPORATE GROUP AND TAKE CARE OF THERE CUSTOMERS undefined
