Only one in the US? There are three or four of these things in the fleemarket at any given time.
Stock used SE is maybe worth 8k.
And you still don't have one.............?

Another nice orange headed babe..............


I may be Honda-centric, but these lovelies have always been referred to as "Red-Heads", so I'm not too sure how to judge this, other than these preciousnesses have never claimed KTM in our diverse culture... Red Head sounds hot. Orange head? not so much. Then again, some of us can kick it once to light it up, while others require auxiliary power sources to light something that obviously is already awake and only needs a bit of a bit of a bump to get it rolling. sorry... just thinking out loud here...

Spoken like a true hater.

By the time I sold the BRP, I was first-kickin' it in flip flops. I showed the new owner the sequence (secret handshake), and he kicked, and kicked, and kicked...He finally asked me to start it for him again so he could ride it home. I kicked it over first time in flip flops...again.

That being said, I rode Ryman's 690. It was while riding that bitch that I decided to sell the BRP. There is no comparison. A big bore thumper that feels like I'm riding my 300XC, with lots more power. I may not get one (that $9K price tag is scary), but unless Honda/Suzuki/Kawasaki give up their devotion to motocross, and give us back a sub-300 lb big-bore thumper, then KTM/Hoosabitch/Husq are the only options for updated brappers. Even Yamaha's WR series is limited to 100-mile enduros before valve checks.

One other thing - I have owned Suzuki, Honda, KTM and BMW. The service one gets at the Japanese dealers is at best marginal. And although there are exceptions, for the most part, the European dealerships have been much more knowledgeable about their product and their mechanics are professionals - not some kid who couldn't get a job as a real mechanic, so he's working at a bike shop in the interim.

The reason many of us drink the Kool Aid has nothing to do with magic buttons. It's like saying we are lazy because we ski/board with metal edges. Some things are just better.

I'll be in SL,UT next week. I am having surgery on my tennis elbow - too much Toxic Brittany I guess. Anyway, what do you guys say we meet up for some Dim Sum?

I make it a rule to never ride other people's bikes unless I have the money to buy one.

Cue derogatory comments about riding other peoples wives.

It's cool. Even though you are younger, I can't compete with your obvious more experience.
