    How can the engineers at KTM create such amazing bikes and yet make it such a PITA to do oil changes ?

    If there is one small, tiny, miniscule disadvantage of having had the privilege of designing the book,
    it's that I have already read it :cry

    I wish there were another 240 pages to do, it was A BLAST :clap

    Tales From The Bivouac have their own Facebook group set up,
    pass by and say hello...

    Was itching for a reason to bump this immensely enjoyable thread,
    Ted and I will also be working on a website as soon as work stops interrupting

    Pre Slaes have been printed and will be shipped once they arrive from the printers. After pre sale folks have recieved their copies regular sales will begin (approx June 1st).

    Thanks for the interest :thumb
