Hello...new to this forum and hoping to discover, via the search function and the asking of questions, everything needed to make an informed decision for my next bike purchase. I've tried the Harley scene, the custom V-Twins and just sold my Goldwing with heavily modified suspension...can't get away from my off-road heritage and am now looking for a motard style bike for riding the great twisty roads of the Arkansas Ozarks. My last KTM's were a 1981 250mx and a 1982 495mx that I raced in the SoCal Desert 37 events...yes, I'm older, but still enjoy a brisk ride.
The 990 SMT seems to be along the lines of what I'm looking for, Ducati and Aprilia dealers are few and far between in this part of the country and I know first hand the quality of the KTM equipment. Any advise/comments would be appreciated.
