After about a five year hiatus from riding motorcycles, I am back on the bike and really loving it. Riding is one of those things that gets inside and never goes away.
While I am a big fan of Honda motorcycles, with my last two bikes being a 2005 CRF450R and a dual sported 2006 CRF450X I have switched over to KTM.
When I chose KTM as my next bike, it was for three reasons...
1. Dual Sport ready with a license plate
2. Electric Start
3. Fuel Injection
Being able to have a license plate on a motocross bike is a huge factor and makes it legit to ride on street legal roads that are sometimes the only method of connecting two trails into a complete ride. Electric start is a huge convenience and fuel injection eliminates the mess of a carburetor and getting jetting perfect.
So, earlier this year, the 2015 KTM 350 EXC-F became part of SoCal Overland.
To me, the KTM 350 EXC-F is like the sharpest of knives with a trifecta of perfect power, light weight, and optimal design. This KTM provides pure confidence for carving trails and powering through technical single-track.
I have already completed some bolt on modifications as well as regeared the countershaft and rear sprocket. Let me know if you have any questions about this well thought out machine and I will also be posting up some more info on the mods that have been completed as well as pictures from the trail.
