Default She's alive!

It's been hiding in the garage for 3 years (with a fresh top end), but all this motorcycle talk got me inspired. So I replaced the clutch cable and adjusted the clutch, disassembled the carb and cleaned everything up, fresh water, fresh oil and a new spark plug.....and voila (with apologies for the cell phone vid).

Ratta Tat Tat Put Put Tat

Not sure what's next, but it was fun getting her going again....

2007 KTM 450XC-w Reklus clutch conversion. Rear brake on the handle bar. Street legal, and armored. Pic is of me headed to Buena Vista to camp out and ride 4mile area. Most difficult trail I've run is Pritchett. I don't know a lot about motorcycles. What I do know is you are either freezing cold, or sweating your b@lls off, or somehow both at the same time.

Street legal is not gonna happen with that little smoker....but I've been eyeballin' the WR450F. Never owned a Yammie before, but I like what I see and read (except the lack of a 6th gear).
