not as bad as it sounds but after building it i got a 200 to do enduro and hnh, id only spent 6/8 hours on the sm as the enduro bug got stronger so the sm sat in the corner of the garage.
i then went to the IOM did most of the lanes, this brought on my riding so iv done more lanes over here, not as good as the IOM but still lots of fun.
so now am converting my sm back to enduro but she's got way too much power for the dirt so av torn down the race engine and now in the process of detuning it down to a 450 with a smaller crank n barrel/piston. less fuel than my 200 on the lanes so hopefully il'l not run dry between stations somthing i do on a regular basis in wales:)

hi scuff

I know where your coming from but i recon id cook the engine if i got stuck that 570 has a massive slug in it and the rod would keep any pornstar happy for years so 450 is what am going for, that will be enough for me.
nice to put a face to your name and yes the weather was great i got sunburn just eating my dinner , so when you coming out of retirement??????? that was my seconed time out as guide i took so many wrong turns:dozey: lucky the lads put up with me though, just after we fin dinner one of the lads had a spill n ripped of a rad hose bad design them new ktm's :rolleyes:

Taking a few wrong turns is all part of the fun :D

If i could choose an engine size i think i'd go for a 453 ....Seems the best of both worlds to me.


Im waiting for the wet (ter) weather to start before i think of making a return :D:D....Next month with a bit of luck ;)
