Two weekends ago, I took my recently acquired KTM 450 EXC to the Desert Rose Racing/Academy Enduro practice days. It was the first time I have ridden the 450, but I was very happy except for the occasional wheel spin (on the rim). I have since bought a better rimlock which I hope will solve the issue.
I am specifically training for the Dawn to Dusk Enduro in August down in Wales. Last year I attempted the “Big Bike Rally” at the Dawn to Dusk on my BMW F800GS which was disastrous. My alternator/stator had problems which meant the battery didn’t get charged and the bike died within the first lap, to my relief to be honest, it was very muddy and with a 180kg motorcycle it’s not fun 🙂
So, hence the new 450 … Below as some videos of the practice days, good fun, relaxed environment to practice at your own pace and well recommended. I am going out there again this Sunday, can’t wait !
