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!


Behind Cynthia.....








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............




Keep Loving Rides!

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 their first time to Buck Bald! A couple with a sweet truck were the only ones up there...........hoping to have a view of the eclipse.








Scott wanted some more of Tr 82......so we obliged!
