Pete does not get on the board much so I thought I would let everyone know. Pete is a HAPPY HAPPY Boy, Mary Joe brought him a new 2011 KTM 450 EXC Dual Sport for hid birthday ;D. It looks like the Dual Sport riders in  the club is growing. He is going to brake it in tomorrow happy days!!!
God bless Mary Joe _.._
I'm very glad for Pete now he has a 300 race bike and a 450 DS life is good.

That's AWESOME news! We'll have to look at the calendar and pick a few DS rides once you're up to it and Brian get's his eyesight back. Then when Bob's good to go we'll have a Viewie contingency at some DS rides in the future.


Just hope the new 450 isn't any taller than the 300, Pete's a little height challenged you know!

A lowering link for the rear and slide the forks down in the triple clamps.
You lose some rear suspension travel with the link, but being its not a "race bike" it should be O K for D S.

This is good.  I told Dave Hartman that I was going to try to get some Viewfinders to come with next year on his 300 mile ride.  It would be nice if we could get three or four Viewies for next year.

It is not a problem if you do not put your feet down!

We have a bond.  I can't get rid of her.  Besides soon she will be a 630.

Cool

A growing number of D S bikes looks good to me, a few small things to get mine back up and running.

Pete called me last night, wants to ride L.A.B2V. Told him not me this year and he needs to do some serious planning and preparation before embarking on 400+ miles of DS in two days.

We should look at maybe doing it next year when everyone's healthy. Would be fun to ride it with 4+ Viewies then spend a couple days in Vegas.

Everyone should do this ride at least once, it is quite an adventure. Personally I found the first day monotonous as we were riding in the same old so cal desert we've ridden for years. Second day was better but I had issues and we couldn't finish, would like to at least do day two.
