    Default 1st ride at Nelson on the 500

    Sunday I finally got a few new things installed on the 500 (hand guards, radiator guards and skidplate) so it was time to hit some hard pack and see how the new bike felt. I even dumped it once so now she's broke-in. Got that out of the way nice and early. I'm loving this bike!

    Here's a couple photos and some video.

    The full ride report is on my blog, http://livelikepete.com/1st-ride-at-...ktm-500-exc-f/

    That's ok. It won't be there for long because my 4.1 Acerbis is ready to install.

    Experience the ride... Experience the adventure... Experience... the KLR.
    Folks... Adventure Riding is more than just a fun day out on the trail with your Buddies.... it can also be a day of Survival from the type of environment that can kill you. BE PREPARED!
