Wow, you're really out to compare sizes here, buddy! Here you come and get all serious and take the thread to negative-town... Just another ADVRider dick-swinging contest accompanied with massive flying assumptions..... In your ripe 25 years of life and however fewer years you've ridden motorcycles, you've ridden a race equipped rally or enduro bike?? And no I'm not talking about a stock KTM with their catchy "Ready to Race" slogan attached. I'm talking a real race ready bike, whether it be a KTM, BMW, Yamaha, Suzuki, whatever. I haven't. Not many of us have. And given you're level of defense in this subject, looks like you haven't either. The bike in this thread is far more race-prepped than many other bikes I've even seen on this forum, other than an actual Dakar bike. Maybe you don't really know what race-ready means?... So let's both put the tally's away. You take your Orange Crush and Orange flavored Kool-Aid and go back to Orange Crush, and I'll stay here in BMW Kool-Aid land and drool over this bike. Thanks.
