Yes, it's better, the first one looked like a moto gp episode. :-))

As far as I see, the rider's helmet is a dual sport one and looked to me like there is not much wind disturbance.

Mmm still not got the set sorted! Might stick with my 990 till Pebble35 comes to North Yorkshire on his vacation to pick up a hoodie ;) and gives me a test ride on his new toy.
Will get back to you on the hoodie tomorrow ! Got to send you a key as well .................

My dealer, John Erdman of South East Sales in Milwaukee,Wisconsin told me today he'll get to see the bike at the Dealer Meetings in June, but that KTM is telling him the bike will be available for purchase September-"ish."

The motorcyclist.com... review says that he had 30 mpg of fuel consumption; according to my calculation, it is equal to 7.85 lt/100 km. I can't see the 20% less consumption, if this is the case.

From wikipedia:

The nearly final form of the 950 Adventure was formally presented in at the 2003 Intermot Motorcycle show. Mass production of the LC8 begins in February 2003.

Presumably US gallons as it was a US magazine ? Also look at how it was being ridden

I am still very keen to see what it will do in 'normal' use

Yes Pebble, I don't want to think that it's UK mpg, which would be even higher consumption. :-))) Anyway, waiting forward to see it live. :-)))

I totally agree with you. I still find almost 8 liters too much. But in the review its not described at all how the bike was ridden. Some may see 8 or 9l/100km even with a 600cc bike.

Of course it would be a drama if that consumption would be under normal conditions. If that is the case, i start then to believe that KTM is not making any kind of effort reducing the consumption.
