After close to a month in dry dock, Moby made it out for a cold spin. ABS switch, heated grips, cannisterectomy, larger kick stand foot, nerf bars, saddlebags and throttle lock all passed the sea trial with flying colors.

Went for a rip. Snowy side roads and some ice on mains but a lot of gravel. Still nice to get out and bang through the gears though.

May have to swap out the Mefo/Heidenau combo and throw the 908/Karoo set on until summer.

The first you said.
It's a standard ABS model raised to 2006 S height (245mm).

Oh, and I'm not married

Blur, thanks, I designed 'em and had a local shop in Calgary cut and install after my graphic designer sister helped with scale and finish. Did a good job. The shop is Ignition. Cheers.

Actually it has been 4 months I'm riding KTM. When you driving at dark night especially mountain it was very hard to see in front of you easily.

Then we decided to use micro de for the auxiliary fog aim lights and FF50 for the visibility & to be able to see the road clearly.

as you noticed that KTM has relatively small battery when you compare with 1200GSA, after start the engine I have turned on fog lights first, the on the FF50 to keep my battery alive.

The best is FF50 is very sufficient and it is actually working. But if you say I would like to buy something tremendous I would definitely recommend Comet 200.

Cheers.

Fortunately, my wife is just fine with my extramarital activities

Cheers!

I have Hella FF320 on my truck, they are very good, but didn't know how Hella perform for a riding use. Good to know your experience.
Other point for me is the unreasonably high cost of the led lights en my country, while Hella halogen products are more affordable

Thanks.

Thumb First shot of my 950A

Current parking spot, seat off for charging (Battery under seat, for now), storage tub on the floor has the stock bash plate, some add on bits and some oil service parts waiting to be used.
Bike is currently waiting to be torn down, serviced, lubed etc. and then ridden in prep for my alcan event.




Second shot was the bath day (2nd day owning) to clean off all the dirt/grime to see what needed to be serviced, and what had been mcguyvered before it was mine (lots, and it all needs fixin)



Again, if you know this bike, history of this bike, stories or shenanigans of this bike, share please.
