Keep it together, Organize it!

I vote for better organization.

Moderators in other parts of advrider do a more aggressive job of merging threads.

For instance all problems instead of having individual threads could go into the "ktm 1190 problems " thread.

All Farkles, including baggage, add ons, tires, what not could go into the
"ktm 1190 Farkle thread."

I could organize it in 10 minutes if I were a moderator.


I for one bought a ktm 1190. And I hope to buy other ktms, I like the bikes, and I like the community. All the haters suck, but that is the internet forums.

Keep it together! Organize it!

Agree. I don't think this specific forum needs a split, as much as the "Thumpers" and KTM-specific stuff generally does. Just for starters, you could break them up into: KTM thumpers, KTM twins / everything else, and give the 690 its own forum as well, since probably 30-40% of the threads in the "Thumpers" section are 690 related, and as mentioned above, have lots of redundancy between threads. This could group the Orange Crush section into several subsections for all things KTM-related.

It's much easier in here - all you have to do is specify "990" or "950 SE" or "1190" in the title of your thread here and you'll have no confusion.

Also, since we're on the subject of forum splits, they might consider "Tigers" and "Teneres" getting their own section out of the beasts forum. Once the mods start down this road, a lot of fragmentation starts to happen.. I think it's working pretty well so far, apart from my suggestions about breaking out "Orange Crush".

Also there are loads of ktm forums

www.ktmforums.com/forums/

www.ktmtalk.com/

www.ktmsmt.com/



singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/ktm-990-adventure-any-owners

The 1190 stuff will die down after a while.

Someone could even do something like this if they wanted to get really involved.

We BMW über alles riders have two places to talk about boxers and one to talk about those paraller thingies. It's only fair that Katoom people have to mix completely different engines under the same sub-forum.
