    Default Denver, CO KTMtalk Newbie

    I'm new to KTMtalk, ridden for awhile mostly the Adv thing on big bikes in CO and UT.
    Currently ridding a 17' 1090AR like a dirtbike. It's breaking the bank (wheels, suspension, sas delete/airbox, steering damper, misc. farkles, etc.)
    Just competed in the KTM Rally Ultimate Qualifier in Breckenridge, CO. Turns out I'm not the only idiot that likes to ride KTM street bikes offroad!

    Maybe trade that in for a 500EC?

    You sound like my brother.
    He has a 16' 500EXC and a 13' 1200GS.
    He thinks he has 80% of the riding he wants to do, covered.

    My problem is, I only really like riding on dirt, but, I also really like going places.
    I left my garage in Arvada, CO on my 1090 and rode 1000 miles in 3 days, through CO, UT. 330 mile days on average, 90% on Forest Service Roads, pavement when it got too late, I got too tired, or just got lost. That's really hard on a 500EXC, and when you load 100lbs of gear (don't forget fuel+water) for that trip on your 500EXC, your going to wish you had a bigger bike.

    This is me on my 1090 and my brother on his 500EXC north of Divide, CO.

    You don't stop riding because you are old, you get old because you stop riding, as the saying goes.
