Does anyone have some pictures from Emma Long City Park? I just want to know what I'm going up against. What's the most difficult obstacle I'll face? KTM 200XC-W

I love my 200. Plenty of power, light, and easy to handle. I'm only 5'10" 140lbs, so it's plenty of bike for me right now.

Most difficult obstacle? Probably several places with ledges going uphill like stair steps that are higher than your skid plate and less than your wheelbase apart. And they sometimes start before you can get starightened out from a turn, just to add some more difficulty. You might try the trail on a mountain bike first. You can carry that up the ledges and you'll get a good look at the trails too. Looking up at some of the ledges will make you wonder how you're going to get your motorcycle up them.

Just take your time on the motorcycle and go with a buddy so you can help each other at the bad spots and you'll have a good time.

It's a five to six mile loop and it will take you almost an hour to do it before you get the hang of climbing the ledges.

Have fun!
Greg

I don't have any pictures, but what you'll be facing is very tight trails with continuous solid rock step ups and drop offs. It is very suited to trials bikes and "adult" mini bikes are fun out there as well.( I can physically lift the little bike up or down these drop offs). Recommend skidplate if possible, It will make you a better rider if you can conquer the rock steps and drops, but it can be very intimidating. As always when riding, it's best to go with someone for the safety factor.

Make sure you practice hops. All I can say its a wprkout on a big bike. I tried it on my YZ250f and It really wore me out. Some of the step ups were to big for me to hop and I had to lift my bike!

I don't know if I'd want to do it on my 450, but it was pretty easy on my KTM 300, since it'll lug through anything. My old trials bike was even easier, but no seat got tiring after a while!
