Everytime I ride my KTM 625 SMC on the highway. Ever tried to sit on a fence post?

The seat is fucking aweful, oil changes are too expensive, It's the least reliable bike i've ever owned (everything else has been 70's hondas) and it shakes, my god does it shake.

But for all its flaws, it does things that i never thought bikes could do. Corners effortlessly. Lean forward in 2nd gear and the back tire will spin for a city block. Lean back and the front will greet the sky. The BRAKES! Amazing. I've never had a bigger love hate relationship with any bike I've ever ridden.

Is it worth it? I honestly don't know.

I purchased a new Kawasaki Concours years ago when i lived in Florida. That had to be the slowest, heaviest POS I have ever rode. It also vibrated at highway speeds like a paint shaker.
