Wow! I have a very nice example in my garage right now! '76 model... looks just like the top one in the pic above.

I never ride it though and it just sits collecting dust in the corner of my garage... maybe I should make it a winter project to go through it and put it back on the road next spring... or maybe just pass it on along to someone that would enjoy it more... hmmmm

If I had access to a good suspension shop in Portugal I might have kept it. The exclusivity of the HP is a big attraction, so much so I Uhmmed and Ahhed a long time between getting the multi and a lovely used HP sport. But the deal I have in getting the multi was just too tempting.

After riding to a event last weekend, I spotted a KTM Super Duke. While the stock version is certainly a pleasure to view, at my age I really wish KTM offered a Gentleman's version, perhaps 2" longer in WB, softer sprung and de-tuned a bit with perhaps 10-15 less HP. Everything else is fine in my eyes.

KTM SMT?

Today I'm lusting after an R1. I know of one for sale, cheap. The story is, it has cosmetic damage. An angry x girlfriend smashed up the front and rear fairings with a hammer and used a broken whiskey bottle to scratch the hell out of the gas tank. The jiffy marker came off rather well.

Why do I want it? I figure it would go good on ice.

Sounds like the foundation of a COOL street fighter project.

Woot! would love to see pics of that smashed her upper for sale. Just curious to see how bad things really got. He must have done some shady shi*.

On the Super duke topic. I loved it. Then I rode the 990SMT and loved it even more.

Screen and a decent tank range! Killer bike for sure.

I know that might sound sacrilegious to the KTM squad although with my suggested softened, longer suspension travel & WB for my aching back, the normal abundant HP would only serve to put me on my bum. So I figured, dial it back a bit and enjoy the ride.

Hell yes.

Also would like something that you have to push-start.
