    So Pippen, what is the highest speed you have achieved with the bike and how is the stability at high speed?

    Ooo, this is fun, still a bit cold and a lot of sand on the roads so you got to be careful out there...

    As a cnc programmer/machinist one of the small things that makes me smile is the handlebar mounts and hanguard links which have been machined from solid and hard anodized and not cut from some mass manufactured length of extrusion with a couple of holes and spotfaces machined into them, quality and detail.
    lovely.

    I still want to know if KTM has fixed the "Miles Remaining" value, i.e. if it's properly converted from km to miles now. Is miles an option for units in the SAS? Can someone check with a full tank how many miles are remaining if so?

    Did 230 km/h for a moment, but thats not the end of the line in any-means. Stability is good, no problems accure (just as with the Superduke). Also did just over 200 km/h with passenger without any concerns.

    Was there a issue? Miles is a option on the SAS. 390 km remaining with full tank, but that should be approximately 240 miles?? The numbers are rounded, thats for sure.

    No, because I didn't search for them again. To busy with working and sleaping and riding the thing. :D

    Did make a vid of my first ride on my restored 1973 Honda CB350F with a GoPro chestmount. Get some cool (but a bit slow) footage out of it.
    Shall try to make the same sort of video with the SAS this weekend and post it here.

    I highlighted this in an earlier message. Having filled up the tank 3 times , I've found it pretty accurate . c 5mpg difference in 220 mile range. Av fuel consumption showing at c46mpg (IMP) . Calculated it to be 44.8mpg on one tank.

    on the 15-16 1290SA, miles remaining the "miles" unit was not converting properly from km, at least on US models. This has still not been resolved to my understanding.

    So your miles remaining shows 220mi on a full tank? I guess they did resolve it for the new models. It'd be nice if they'd fix it for the 15-16 1290SA.

    I think it shows something ridiculous (c 290miles) for about the first 5 miles. It then re-calibrates and shows c 220 miles. Will double check that for my own sanity.

    If they've fixing that km/miles fuel range malarkey it will be a bonus.........KTM seem to have firmly buried their heads in the sand for the past 3 or 4 years on this.

    Still don't understand why they can't sort out a software upgrade to correct it on everything pre-2017.

    Acc1 and Acc2 are behind the headlight. To access them, you need to remove the headlight. I used Acc2 to power my GPS. 20170421_160823s.jpg
