Thanks, Grok, i should easily put 5,000+mi on the KTM this year and will be talkin' it up to anyone who will listen. I think i'm gonna try to hit Mid Ohio and Putnam Park this summer, too, and see what happens. If the bug bites i may buy a CR (or similar) and convert it.

Question

How do those guys slide the rear out so easy? I don't think the bikes have that much hp, but it seems like exiting every corner they have the rear end stepped out. How???

The power to weight is pretty good, I just weighed my berg fully gassed with all the signals, lighting stuff, mirrors and electric start. It weighs 272 lbs and it develops a torquey 60 hp at the rear wheel. That isn't bad specially when you consider it's power band is about 6500 rpm wide. This makes for managable power delivery.

The technique for "backing it in" or "kicking out" the rear wheel is pretty simple. On the 2-strokes you bang them down to a gear that will put you into the power band for the corner, then tap the rear brake to get it sliding as you begin your turn. The slide is held by dialing enough throttle on to control and maintain it.
A 4-stroke is easier. Kick down a couple of gears engage clutch quickly and smoothly as you initiate the turn, then it's throttle control all over again. Lots of compression braking does the trick.

Like any threshold-of-traction activity you have to practice making smooth inputs and very important:
The pain of sliding out is less than that of a high-side!
So if you feel you are loosing the rear end,Don't Slam the Throttle Shut!
Of course you practice in a safe place and wear your protective garb. How Fun!

Try it...........You'll like it!
