Yeah, from what I hear it's the heat from those new 1190s you need to cool off.

If that were the case it would have a KTM logo. I'm starting to think the whole rear cylinder heat thing was a design feature intended to increase the average ridding speed of 1190 owners worldwide. Fortunately for me they did add reflective insulation under the seat of the 2014 models.

Added a Big Red Pig to the fleet last night, I have intentions of making it a light duty adventurer/occasional commuter.

Rocon 2.0?

Looks like the Rocon is getting upgraded as a turbo diesel

I think the female model is mounted on the seat and buzzes directions.

"Why We Ride" is showing next Thursday at the Gateway Megaplex... if they sell enough tickets by today. 55 to go! I'm surprised no one has posted it up yet.

Hey Ryman you still planning against March 21-23 for a spring ride? I have to lock down next month's work schedule in the next couple days and would like to keep it available if it might happen. Any excuse for the winter to be over and back on the bikes works...
