It really shines and needs me getting more courage to attack.

Enjoy
I love the sound

...and with that said i will work on improving the sound. Maybe the Zoom H4N could be strappen somewhere. Good sound really improves the "picture".

thanks for the feedback

Those roads look like a WRC course, fast and flowing. Very cool. I need a vacation so I can go ride Denmark.

damn that was beautiful

I especially liked that part when the black sheep was still on the road and as soon as you gassed it, it went running

Rerouted the right tank fuel line and its completely wrapped in fire retardant materiel. This is a bit longer route, though way more safe in the long haul.








Not much seat time. Im done with school the 12th next month and then im straight off to catch up with wife and kid in southeren Sweden. We are off to this house again...




Enjoy whatever you are doing.

Long way from the battlefield. Looks like a slice of Heaven. Enjoy your trip and make sure you post pictures of your ride up.

Well the thought has been there if this should be to much power. And now ive had the oppertunity to ride 1000+ km im convinced that the power is easy controlled with the 17/17 setup. On the other hand the S12 offroad setup is not that practical. Think of 2 stroke, ride gravel or other loose surface when it start to built up power from 4-6ks it really is easy to handle. As soon you go above it spins up whatever you got. Though it feels absolute controllable and the frame/suspension setup really makes a bike i can remember.

Yes it is to much power offroad. Onroad is just perfect.

My SE with a 990 SDR motor from 2009 (the one with larger intakes and 132 hp per KTM's datasheet) is already too powerful for gravel. Wild spinning on gravel with fully open throttle, 6th gear high speed any tyre. Can just imagine how it would become with another fifty horses, all dirt surfaces like ice.

I have accurately calculated with my pantometer that I use about the same as you but sometimes up to 85hp on a gravel road as I am about to crash (say at 100mph or so) have possibly used all of my 100 needies on occasion but consider it a similar sensation to running a fuelly dragster (way to scary)

So I'm guessing youse guys bikes are insane

A guy I ride with who had a 690 was horrified when he being tapped out was constantly having his mirrors filled with a wheel spinning swaying from side to side monster, He has since gone out and traded it on a nice new white 990

You are spot on 1BIGADV. These numbers are truly weird cause they just slip away underneath you.
On my way home from job this day, on a less travelled road, i tried wring it out in 3rd...shiftlight is on at 10500 rpm and 169 km/h(gps). I hadnt really tried let the engine pull through, even in its rough condition i was a bit amazed. For now Ive just used the huge amount of tourqe when over taking cagers. But the feeling when the bike hit 8-9k. It pulls so hard. The only thing i can put it up against is an R1 ive ridden though this one is so "beefy". Its a high revving race engine, know. But it is very easy to ride and im getting closer to my dream.

One of the things i need to look into is my forks under medium/heavy braking, "friction sticks". Like it studders but ive got no clue in what to do or where to start. Ive never felt it on the old S suspension.

Yep Rukka Armas. That is by far the best suit ive ever been in. It IS tough. My initial thought was the Klim Adv 2 set. Then this unused Armas set turned up in Fleabay in Germany and i knew what sizing i needed. In my opinion Rukka is one of the most well made mc suits out there. Im glad i chose it.

I ofcourse dont say that Rukka is better than Klim...only by a large margin

Know you raised the front fender up when installing the 320mm Pyndon Suspension, I didnt and there were signs of interference:



Then the guy I share a garage with came up with a solution with a bracket forcing the fender a bit forward:



There are probably nicer ways to do the bracket but seems to work even if the riding have been limited seems the flus and colds keeps visiting me =(
