HOLLISTER HILLS POV
My first rip out with the boys on the 350exc, and it was a good one. Cob and Shane are the main guys I ride moto with here in the Santa Cruz area. After getting my xr600r and doing some solo traveling with it I started going on moto trips with those guys. We’d ride tight single track and big hill climbs for hours on end. As much as I loved my 600r, I had to really give my body hell to keep up with them on their light and nimble 250 two-strokes. After months of searching craigslist I finally found my perfect bike, a plated ktm 350. Getting out with the boys on my new bike was a blast, we made it out to Hollister where the sandy dirt had soaked up all the previous weeks rain and left just enough mud to keep things interesting. The wider than normal trails let us rip side by side and constantly make passes. It’s a good feeling riding the bike and not letting the bike ride you, my arms thank me for it.
