From the spring trip:



And for Thomas, DRZ4x4 and Chris I just found this vid of 178 (not mine). Ahh the memories.

The 6 and a half minute mark was when it started getting fun for us. The other hill at 17 and the tree with poison ivy at 19. Good times. 178 wet took a lot more skill than 199 dry did. I can't wait to go back. Now if Mike would only post the videos he has from H/M.

Never turned the camera on while @ rockhouse. I only have the hill climb @ 97 and the run down 199.

Ha had a bit of free time and was trying to prove a point to someone that:
1. Cr500s don't overheat that easily
2. A KTM 300 shouldn't overheat that easily
3. If you boil a 300 frequently and a cr500 with KTM radiators doesn't.. you're doing it wrong.

Yep 6:41 and 17:30 were the tire selection trouble spots.

The rekluse put a lot of heat into the engine. I knew this already. Plus the 300's were known for running hot from what I've read. I haven't boiled over / lost coolant since I fixed the fan wiring and got it running by bar switch. That has worked just fine even in stuff where other bikes were overheating. I'm happy with the solution, but I do want to set it up to turn on automatically. (Plus have an override where I can turn it on if I want too.)

And face it. That 500 only got cracked open throttle-wise on that one hill. At least according to my ears and what's left of my hearing.

Ahhhh. I rarely hit TT. Usually when I need something I go over to KTMTalk instead. Somewhat more focused, less whining, and if needs be I send a note to Jeb for a good answer if I'm not getting anything.

I'm glad I checked out this site to see this new post. Thanks a ton for posting the videos! When we went back this fall we left Buffalo, NY at 3 am and by early afternoon we headed straight for 178. It was somewhat easier dry but I still needed one little push on the hill before poison ivy log. That was the only assistance needed and I hit almost every inch of singletrack at buffalo mountain and rockhouse. I LOVE it down there!!!

I still think a knobby wins on 178 wet or dry.

Though If its wet at all I'd run a TT @ rockhouse, & I should have tried 0psi on whatever was after 199 (151?)

Yes, 151. It was better from the other direction. That hill was the coolest thing on that trail. I chatted for a bit with the guy that made the single track at buffalo mountain and he said without a doubt the toughest trail at rockhouse was
151 and 178 at Buffalo Mountain. I was extremely happy with my trials tire again and we did ride one day in the rain this fall. For the record I hate the tire at home on loose dirt but there was none of that down there so it works great!

I'm curious to see how the S-12 works. I like it better than the MX-51's. Slightly less traction, but loads more predictable spinning it up.

I'll bring a trials tire as well to try it out on a dry day for grins. I just shredded them before at higher speeds. (D803 that is. Which seems to be known for the best traction, but not the best lifespan)
