Cool mate, it looked like a nice bit of gear when i eyed it off.
It's a funny set up there, real shitty looking house out front, until you walk around the back, I nearly got in my car and drove off until I read this liitle faded sign saying to go around the back.
If first impressions counted, then I wouldn't have gone around the back ,but once you do walk up the side it's like another place, they know their rims.

BINGO flash looking bike.
Not harsh ...a good POV and thats my intention.....sure it wont be the last time !!

For the riding I do there are no tubeless tyres that will do the job. Any KTM rider that considers tubeless tyres needs to trade the KTM in on a BMW

I would have to say rider error ....again !

Took me 6 months to mark the virginal white girl and this pic was after I had picked her up from laying on the right side

Love those engine bars

It was good to meet you both on TK's run. Enjoy the ride and the bikes.

You've got the bikes to cover big distances now, if you ever come west let me know, I'ld be glad to have a snort or assist.

A big thing in OC is to remap, but for me if mine does it after I receive it this Saturday, I'll be doing the cams route.

BTW not all pre 2009 had the jerky problem either.

Again, this is only what I've read & have been told....

hope this helps, now hurry up and buy.....

Michael
Cheers for that info Micheal, been a bit concerned about the jerky probs associated with some of the 990's but it is comforting to know it is a fairly easy fix. This gives me alot of 950/990's to consider now, sweet...

A huntin here we go...

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"
