    I can understand owning and loving all of those bikes... Minus the first one. Honestly though, you could keep every kid in the neighborhood off drugs with that many bikes!:D I've got 1 (and a half...sort of) and am looking to add another within the next year or two, that'll probably be it for several years though.

    And I don't know about the KTMs. I see more of them than anything else on the road these days (DS and Supermoto wise) so it would make sense to see more threads on problems. And of course they're needy girls who constantly need adjustment, when you think about just HOW needy they are how many of those people do you imagine actually do all the required maintenance? Not many I'd say, which would lead to many Katooms going Kaboom. When I think like that I can't really fault them.

    Here's one bike I ride. Does it makes my butt look big? I had a Yamaha but I couldn't wheelie it so, I sold it.

    Stick an xr4 motor in that ktm frame and you'll have another bike you can depend on. It will still have poor suspension though.

    Well I guess that's a good start to a week. I did 3000 miles last week on my GS.
