It is a KTM 450EXC - a birthday present to myself. I had no idea that the lighting on these things was AC until I went to modify the wiring harness. The front lighting is incandecent and the tail is LED. Everything is working pretty well but I've got a bit of a miss at idle. I think I'll learn about KTM carbs this week.

I took a ride up Sunshine Canyon to Switzerland trail for a shakedown run. Despite a bit of drizzle and some flurries, it was great. The burnt area near Sunshine was a bit spooky though.

Nice Bruce. Hit me up anytime you want to ride.

MMmmm that orange Kool-Aid sure is good.

I'm hooked on ADV rider Rocky's regional forum
