This kid (Noah Clark) has some nice videos featuring the Alta. He's an experienced GNCC rider that I follow on youtube, trying to pick up some fast riding tips. He's a pretty fast rider.

Anyway, he borrowed an Alta, and he and his friend were playing around with it in this vid. I love the expressions on the first time riders when they try the Alta.



Here, he does a lap time comparison between the Alta and a YZ250 in the woods. It certainly looked like he was going faster on the Alta (and he thought he was as well), but it ends up he was a bit slower. I'm sure a bit more practice on the Alta would even them up.

Frank-the-Dog likes the Alta, LOL! That was funny.

My cat passed away recently. :cry: She liked the Alta too. She liked to sit in the backyard right next to my figure-8 track and watch me practice. She was not afraid at all.

The Alta was moving and jumping underneath him much more than his YZ250 did. Either it is a suspension tuning, or perhaps also the the way the Alta pitches much more over obstacles.

He was lugging that YZ250, so I can't think it was generating more than 25-35 hp peak. The Alta is heavier, but it is at least as number as the YZ250.

I am thinking whatever lap time differences he measured we probably due to his short seat time on the bike and the suspension tuning on the Alta.
