On the dirt on the way into Maybel last Friday I was averaging somewhere between 90-110.
It was painful to get to the paved road into town where the speed limit was 35 (and you didn't dare do 36 as it was a one horse town )

With a few exceptions, the speed limits off road are dictated by the laws of physics. Resolving penalties for violation are often more than just throwing money at it.

When for no reason at all you go into the shed where it's stored, uncover it, stand back and have a look, relish the smell, then cover her back up, close the door, and head inside.

When you start to see a 650 thumper as a tiny little slow light thing. I rode a DR650 yesterday and it felt like a mountain bike lol.

You know you are a 990 owner....

When the rearshock starts leaking every 7.000 km's.....

Shock leaks for the 4th time in 30.000 kms.

KTM Netherlands to decide if they will replace the shock.
Hope they will and cure this repeating problem.

Huh I hadn't heard that was a normal flaw at least. Mine seems to be fine so far, let's hope it stays that way! Good luck getting yours fixed!
