The desert was very windy having temperatures reaching 107 F. Tim, the owner of the KTM dealership, who was helping put this on, told me to suit up and hop on. Since Marc was out with some other riders I would be taking Ruben Faria's bike out. I borrowed a helmet and I couldn't mount the GoPro camera to it, I had to mount it to the front of the bike on top of the route sheet. Unfortunately, with the extreme amounts of vibration, the imaging wasn't very stable but it's video at least!We took off on this small 5km track they laid out, giving you the opportunity to ride the bike at it's full potential. This bike has 52 mm forks giving it a more plush ride while racing through the deep whoops at high speeds. The bike developed great power and amazing sound but the best part is when you thought you were at full throttle and still had another ¼ more! AMAZING!! The whole time I'm riding all I could yell was, "POWER." Reminding me of the guys on top gear, when they came out of the corner driving the Bugatti Veyron, now I know that feeling!The bars were very wide and the bike sat very high off the ground, but, none of that bothered me. The idea of the speed you could reach in no time at all was the scary part of the ride. Hitting speeds over 100 mph was no issue, and after I hit a few whoops at + 100 mph which gave me white knuckles, I slowed down a bit. We rode through the desert, over sand dunes and a few gravel sections. Ruben explained to me it was faster to drive around a tall sand dune at high speed rather than just to ride over it. I never thought about that before, but could see his point after climbing a few.
