    Did a trackday last season where the lead instructor was on his own MM. I on my S1RR. Riding talent was clearly in his favour but it was still impressive to see the MM move around a tight track and make the large number of S1rrs present look rather pedestrian. Great bike imo. Glad I own an HP2.

    Those are some of the mountain passes that cross over the Sierra range. We have done some on our GS' , but not the MM like Eric.

    sorry for the delay.
    I search for the info but I don't have it anymore.
    Real basic product sold with a little guide in plastic to maintain the distance from side of the wheel while you install the tape.

    full article here, should bring about 170 rwhp

    probably kills the ability for use at a nice curvy road but for the autobahn or just stop-light sprints it might just work.

    Well, I have a turbo boxer on my cage (Subie WRX), so I know what a turbo can do :evil... That being said, I love my MM's characteristics the way it came from the "Motorrad..."
    The intercoolers on the DACAR version are going to be short-lived unless skid guards are installed. I may be a simple Simon, but I like my GSA and MM just the way they are; I am curious about the H20-R coming out though...

    It is already available, strange follow up to any boxer though :rofl

    But seriously, I am waiting to see what the production version of the KTM Superduke 1290R prototype will look (and sound!) like.

    ok, so how about this video then? I know it features a stupid doll and the music is questionable but the road is epic.
