Re: KTM EXC 500 opinions

Joe, I have you penciled in for September at Jeeps. This will be the 3 hr team race, (not the 6 hr Massacre in Feb, pic is from 2015). I think the big open course might be fun on a lazy 4 stroke diesel pig. Sweet! As the 500 is the only bike I own at the moment, that is what I will be racing! You a...

Re: Memories!

Memory 2: diagnosing a 2-stroke ignition (no-spark) with a very old needle-type volt/ohm meter. No manual, just seat of the pants diagnosing.
