He posted a pic of his badass YZ250 and if you look closely you can see the swingarm of a KTM in the left side of the pic..

Valid observation.

Been telling you guys this for a couple weeks now, but some don't pay attention around here.

The reason I was checking his insta.. soooo sweet!!!
But then I was wondering why he's in riding gear and has dirty boots. Then I saw the other bike.

Interesting framing of that shot.

Him trying to start a team with KTMs doesn't mean he's going to be factory or even factory supported

Just because I don't know, is he doing the work on the 04 himself?

|

8/21/2017 10:12 AM

THQ is back as title sponsor? Do the fellas' over at Monster know this?

|

Bell Bottoms....they really do come back in style. And here I though they were only good for getting caught in your bicycle chain.

Yea, I think Dave (and maybe Goose) are helping him.

Has anyone heard Reed might be on a KTM?

Do you think that KTM swingarm is in the picture accidentally? Of course not, it is just Chad Reed being Chad Reed

|

8/21/2017 12:43 PM

Chad Reed once again being the social media pro

|

8/21/2017 12:46 PM

Come on, you can't tell shit from that photo. Could be one of his other yams.

Why are his feet floating off the ground? Davis Blaine elevation trick?

Isn't that the "stolen" table clothes on the right side of the picture? Once a dick, always a dick. Wish he would just slither back down under into his hole.

|

What brand are those cabinets across the back there? Are they worth a flip or just veneered MDF junk?

|

I guess you know you're a badass when you build a replica bike of what YOU raced.

How the heck can anyone really tell that's a KTM swingarm? Maybe he will be on KTM next year but there is a lot of speculation around here. as usual....... smile

KTMs and Husqvarnas have a pretty distinct swingarm because a lot of it has a sand cast / rough look to it with a shape on the side that is machined smooth. I don't know how else to describe it, but check it out here: http://www.ktm.com/us/mx/450-sx-f-09f844c7/ (didn't know where I was alowed to link images from so it's just a link to KTM's 450SXF page) It can't be a husqvarna because the smooth part on that swing arm is straight back, not at an angle like the one in Chad's pic.

I love that he purposely got just enough into the shot to tell what it is. There's no other reason for the YZ to not be centered in his shot. Keep doing you Chad! cool
