Many thanks to Crispy. Apologies for the scenery or lack of it.
Nope, you are mistaken. There is a Ulysses in that picture as well. Also a great bike, but somewhat more limited in the dirt side.
Have you ever tried or seen these? They have changed the way I look at a wet day of riding. You can wear them all day long and feel great.
Up on Wigwam Creek Rd (Cheesman Mountain area) surveying part of the Hayman Fire burn area. 10 years later and it still looks like a nuke went off here...
Cheesman Lake parking lot...
Does your brother have any left over KTM stickers?
That looks all kinds of great!
Thanks for the comments guys.
I've been thinking about getting some waterproof boot liners. Thanks for the recommendation!
The Repsol graphics look great, Azmontana!
Just love this KTM!!!!!
Translation for the middle-aged and older crowd (including me):
Lekker is a commonly used word in the Dutch language that is more similar to the word English word luscious than the word tasty. Lekker is used to denote something delicious or sweet, and is more commonly used by the under 30 crowd as a term for a woman having sex appeal. Lekker, like luscious, has a sexual connotation. In South Africa, however, lekker has primarily been used in place of the English terms "cool" or "sweet," with a much more broad, less sexual, undertone.
Always love to know more and more shades of every different language from spanish (and I love English). Thanks for the lekker (cool) lecture!
(48 years old would still be middle-aged....? certainly I'm not under 30 anymore :huh )
I still could not post pics of my bike to introduce her and myself as I should, and I already having a problem with her...
I have ride it just 30kms or so during the month I owned it, but I started her once or twice a week anyway just to see how is the battery doing and of course to feel more close to her...
Today I was going to finaly go for a ride, the engine cranks but she doesn't start.
I would describe the situation as follows (obviousness is due strictly to myself, not to you guys!):
Step 1- Turn ignition key ON
Step 2- Begins the start cycle and wait to be completed (clock needle up and down, and lights on and off),
Step 3- Press the starter button
Step 4- Two revs of the engine, and
Step 5- All starts from Step 2 ...! (note 'not from step 1', I don't touch the key)
Notes and taken actions:
- Battery always sounded ok, even today.
- Rare detail: if I keep pressing the starter button, the bike keeps cycling from Step 2 to Step 5.
- No error codes on the screen :huh
- the only thing I have done before this problem is dismounted the fairing/headlamp and cockpit, to figure out how to connect my GPS. Anyway, she started ok after that, 4 days ago
- All fuses checked and are ok [ Main Fuse (I know doesn't match the behaviour but...) and all the fuses between the tanks (yeah, I know, "all the fuses? what for???" ) ]
- Read all the Trouble Shooting Section of the Owner's Manual, and I couldn't find anything new to check/test.
- The intent before the last intent, the LCD pannel kept off (lights on) and no Step 2 was undertook. I switched the ignition key OFF, pulled the key out, put the key in, ignition key ON, and now behaves again like I am reporting in this help request post.
It's a fact that the bike is totally new to me... I declare myself a total idiotic about her.
Anybody has a clue of what can be going on....?
Thanks in advance!
Dutch : Lekker
