Graeme Irwin has had his first day on the 2018 KTM – and says he loves the orange machine!
Based in California and riding a bike supplied by the TLD KTM team in the states, Irwin is guaranteed a few weeks of good weather before he returns back to the European winter for his final preparation.
Irwin last rode a KTM back in 2011, also for Roger Magee’s KTM UK team, but then it was a 350 in MX1 and Irwin was a teenager. Now, with a British championship under his belt, Irwin is ready to go back to MXGP level and is clearly impressed the 2018 450 machine!
Day one is in the books. @ktm_official thank you for making such an awesome 450 SXF.. I love it… 2018 is going to be a good year. Big thanks to @tld_raceteam for sorting me out with a fully loaded bike👍 @asascaff @rogermagee @ktm_uk @hambridgehomes @tld_moto @calcrutchlow @alpinestars @chrisscarlett @jamiedobb @foremanofficial @tractionfinance
