Ken Roczen and KTM have won the U.S. 250SX West Championship. A European rider on a European motorcycle, never thought I'd see the day. Mr.Decoster wins another title.

Good to see a change.
Both 250 races were bloody good with both titles decided on the last lap.

I was hoping Moose-Can was going to hang with Roczen for a 1-2 in the shootout.If he had ridden like he did the last few laps of his race,it would have been something to see. :o

A friend of mine (who has since pasted away) was once the western Canadian importer for KTM. If only Dan were alive to see what is happening now.

KTM is starting to seriously challange the big four. the japs need to start kicking out the jams or they'll get left in the dust. I'm seeing a ton more katooms around my area. As far as pro racing goes, since decoster went to KTM they've won their first ever AMA supercross title, an AMA national championship and now roczen takes the 250 west. Theres more winnings in there im sure but I dont keep up so I dont know.

They're bloody good bikes. Fast, handle like a tram car, so much as sneeze on the brakes and you come to a grinding halt ( I cannonballed a 125 sx recently after being on my 2001 HONDA brakes for ages... Holy crap) So many goodies you can't count em. And that mean orange... Dayum is all I can say. I want one.

Yep,I hear it. ;D I've been down that road before though-and am too old and experienced now to be fooled by a just a pretty face. :)
Besides,anyone that's accustomed to a Honda would be stoked taking a ride in my wheelbarrow.  ;)

No Maico for me yet TMKIWI,or anyone else so far. :)
