    Maybe. But it can still go the other way. Remember, KTM have just produced a seriously ass-kicking MX machine, both in World MX with Cairoli and AMA with Dungey. They are also starting on the development of a new lighter, EFI machine as reported by Pyndon. And I don't get the financial woes that everyone lays on them. They have just had a better year than BMW, and are strategically placed in one of the hottest markets, India. They are not going away.

    What KTM lack in money (compared to the Honda Goliath) they more than make up for in svelte, versatile, dedicated and determined groups within the racing branch of the company. And balls. Engineers, mechanics and race managers included.

    And yes, I bleed orange (or rather, purple, like the Kini machine of the mid 90s) :lol3

    Neither the Despres nor the Casteu rumors are confirmed. But as you said, PAU info is usually good.

    Why does the chap with gloves on keep putting the balls back on the table? That's why this %$#@ game won't end!

    I shouldn't really comment. My cousin was World Billiards Champion in 19 and frozen-stiff.

    slightly off-topic (but not really off where the topic is now :shog)

    One Saturday afternoon Archie McKay came into the pool hall with a case (y'know, those old wooden cases) of 7-Up ... 'cept none of the bottles had caps on them ...and passed 'em around. I sorta chugged one and was maybe halfway through the 2nd when I flat passed out on the snooker table.

    To this day, that 'shine was the smoothest stuff I've ever downed.

    Edit: I was 16, best I remember.
