Scott's KTM 1190.......First Ride!
 
A buddy of mine, Scott, that I am in the same Small Group (Sunday School class) at church, just got a new KTM1190! So, we decided that he needed to break it in a little.

You may remember Scott from TDT 4.01.......that was a June ride that Steve put together, since he missed TDT IV. Scott was riding the new Yamaha 250!

Scott and another Cleveland rider, Jamie, headed out a little earlier than I did. Another buddy of mine was celebrating his 40th birthday by camping at Indian Boundary Campground, so I stopped by there for an hour, then met up with Scott and Jamie at Bald River Falls............

We left out from the Falls at 4:00.........since neither had ridden the River Road/Tr.#1 over into North Carolina, I decided we should do that. Beautiful area plus some more dirt for the 1190. Now, Jamie had already taken Scott on a bunch of dirt before they got to me, but Scott said, let's go! Needless to say.....he will be getting a slightly more dirt oriented tire soon.

On our way back toward Cleveland, I asked if he felt up to hitting the milder end of Tr. 82..............he said.....Let's Go For It!

More tire desired before doing the harder section!

It was a nice day for a ride.........I actually wore the mesh jacket and was comfortable. Be looking for Scott and Jamie at some of our future rides!
