    Awesome vid jesse, Most fun I ever had with my cloths on, I raced for 3 years hard, Local Mid East Hare scrambles, NCSHA, and ran about 6 GNCC races. The Mid east and Gncc had ATV's, I always said it was to expensive to race Atv, sxs because I would have to buy 2 of everything. I got re married, it got to expensive traveling and Entry fees, I was dropping 200 a weekend racing, My KTM 300 and 520 exc never let me down, Both were cheap to keep up and always ran at top notch performance. Never turned the first wrench on engine or Tranny. Just general maintenance.. Love the quality. Cost up front was more but it really is a Race ready bike off the show room floor. I will be cleaning my carb soon and firing the beast back up again. Thanks for bringing back good memories. I found out early on I wasn't fast enough to make it pro or make a living out of riding , racing all the time..But Damn it was fun while it all lasted.

    James I knew you'd like that vid. My buddy rides KTM exclusively. He's got sponsors so it helps a little but he stills drops some cash. He's semi pro, ran pot for a couple years I guess. He's 29, says he's over the hill and too old for pro now.
