READER’S KTM RIDE
Many of us would love to be able to buy a new KTM
quad. Wayne Lockport in New York would, too, but since
that’s no longer an option, he makes sure to keep his 2008
450 XC in good running order. During a recent freshening up, he added a Baja Designs Squadron headlight. He
tells us that Motominded makes a cool headlight mount
for dirt bikes that works perfectly for quads too. Thanks
for the tip, Wayne.
A YELLOW KTM?
Pro-Am MX rider Ethan Keffer wanted to stick out in
the “pumpkin patch,” so he decided to throw on some
aftermarket yellow plastics on his KTM 450SX. This KTM
has Rocket Ron-tuned shocks, Maxxis Razr XM tires and
a whole list of other aftermarket goodies to help him stay
out front of the competition.
EVEN CRASHES ARE BIGGER IN TEXAS!
Texan MX racer Aaron Hansen could double as a
baseball player in this photo! Luckily Aaron was wearing
all of the proper protective equipment when this happened. What do you think, was he “safe” or did the quad
call him “out”?
