As an isolated statement, you are absolutely correct. There is no need for a 100 horsepower dirtbike. However, some of us have worked our asses off for many years, and now can afford stuff that we don't need. What is wrong with that? If you are jealous, then work your own ass off for a few years, then buy what you want.

I personally know that I don't need any motorcycles at all. They are dangerous, go too fast, and provide entirely too much of an adrenaline rush and endorphins. No one needs to be that happy.

The SuperEnduro, though, is actually a very utilitarian vehicle. It can cruise a highway for hours (with gas stops every 100 miles!), then slip off onto a nice dirt road if you come across one. Now, isn't that the essence of Adventure touring?

I have experience racing a honda 929 at the race track. Talk about overkill. Less then 400 lbs. and 135 horsepower. Put 30,000 miles on that bike, so I have a little experience with fast. You can never have enough horsepower.

By the way, this KTM SuperEnduro is the most fun bike anyone who doesn't need one can have. That simple.

So Feel Free Not To Come Back Too Soon!

nobody Needs A 100hp. Dirtbike, just like you don't need a four piston caliper on a single disk on your DL650, but it's what they want and it's what you wanted, why knock anyone for that?

And I'm sure that you, Dane, must feel that You Have The Nicest Panniers with your Happy Trails set-up.

So why does that disqualify them from owning a nice bike? I don't get your point, do you need to be Rossi to own a R1?

3 lines.

About 52 errors in spelling, capitalization and formatting (but who's counting?)

Must be some kind of record.

Maybe we need a survey:

ALMONDOG is...

a) dyslexic (maybe it's really GODNOMLA?)
b) learning impaired
c) retarded
d) a troll
e) other

whadda think?

Just try again and leave the last part off. There is no need to piss off 80 percent of the riders(your opinion) here, and make ie go away. There is always someone else who is faster, bigger, stronger, has better paniers etc. but that is what makes me strive to be faster, bigger, better, get nicer paniers etc.
Sounds like you have it all so I strive to be you!
