That's funny. And true. Ktm faster?

I'm not sure yet. Should be, but then I've tried the Michaux enduro and wasn't very fast there :think:
Probably a big part of it because the clutch is too stiff for my hands. Or my hands too weak for it :lol2:

Have ordered a Clake clutch :angel:

But one thing I've noticed on R&T charity ride mud and last weekend at Granvilles camp'n'ride - it is much more forgiving on climbs. It is possible to restart where before I wouldn't even think. And also the power lets me slow down when needed to pick up speed again easy with no gear changes or clutch slipping and praying :cheers:

Still have to figure out the weighting part before obstacles. It seemed so natural on the DRZ, but I suspect I don't do it on the KTM :shrug:

This sucks worse than anything that has ever sucked before.

Seriously, that was one of the most depressing calls I've ever gotten. :kboom: :cry2:
you didn't want to go anyway. You'd just get lots of flats! :killingme:

From the ECEA website:

OK Boys and Girls, hear it here first! Tri-County was able to secure some additional spaces for the 2018 Hammer Run. People who were only able to get Sunday will have first dibs to add Saturday to their ticket. (look for an email) The remaining tickets will go on sale Monday Oct 15 at 10AM. This is the LAST CHANCE to get in, there will be no more, and there is no waiting list. This is truly the last chance. So if you rented an AirBnB house, or convinced your boss to let you off work, you better be on the computer at 9:59AM ready to hit the buy button.

I was wondering if the change to the 500 rider limit and online only registration had been posted somewhere?

I wish I caught the first post back in September; I guess that is what happens when you play it by ear....

wonder who put the limit on the riders? Actually surprised it took this long for it to happen. Sorry about you guys missing out on a fun ride you look forward to.

yabut, they could have registered earlier. Grandma used to say "procrastination seldom pays." :shrug:

Hmm, I thought it was, "Hard work pays off in the long run - but procrastination pays off now".
