Does your KTM's stablemate suck?

What keeps your KTM company in the garage? Here's everyone's chance to weigh in - does my other bike suck - or not? Go ahead, tell me the truth...I can take it.

Oh yeah, what's everyone else got? Can you take the torque if your other bike sucks? Let's see it...

My Ape is awsome. One of the few bikes I like more than the KTM.

These keep my 2006 950 company:

+1 on the 300 XC-W stablemate to 2010 990 S. Yeah - the 300 sucks.... both corners of my mouth up into a big smile.

Ditto. I have a 1250S Bandit,2011 530,DR650 set up for dirt travel.

But my 200XCW set up for local tight big granite singletrack is the biggest grin inducer of the pack on any given day.

If there's a choice on a mostly or all dirt ride,the 200 always begs and gets to go. Simply too much fun! 2 strokes rule!
