I was doing a thanksgiving ride to one of my favorite areas by myself...(I know I know don't tell me...don't ride by yourself, my riding buddy broke his leg a couple of weeks ago. And I don't have anyone to ride with.) I stopped at the top of this hill to let some air out of the tires..it was real squirlly until I did that...anyway this guy stops on a brand new KTM 520...very nice bike I might ad...so he ask me where I was riding...so we rode together I showed him some new stuff (some tight single track) he showed me a new bitchen trail...it was a great day...to top it all off he asked me if I raced...I said...no..I am planning to..I just need more time in the saddle...He said no way man I RACE..and your kicking my ass all over the place, your riding skills are awesome. That really made my day. So I have a new riding buddy...One thing though, that KTM is 8 GRAND!!! damn that is alot.
