I don't know if you should wash those marks off to help you forget about what could have happened or if you should keep them on there as a badge of...something. Frickin' hell. Glad you're alright.

Yep... keep 'em as an offering to the gods of ADV for safe passage!

As Geek said over on the "What did you do to your KTM today?" thread... better go out and buy a lottery ticket, too.

It was just the cherry to top off a horrible week. My fiancee and I broke up on Sunday after two years. So yeah it fit right in.

Yes ,the one on my black one is of the white one in the picture, he then got a tall seat from an R as he is slightly bigger than a dwarf .
I could really abuse him on here as he is not registered but does look in all the time
