    Why build it when you can just buy it? Poser street ride anyway.

    Come on over to Orange Crush and I'll show you the real deal.:deal

    I noticed that also. I don't think those are woman's shoes. It would take a brave woman to wear them. :evil

    I was hoping for a little more understanding and support. I'm soon to dust my
    feet of this thread and the pompous "Mine never breaks" attitiude that has evolved here.
    The Tenere is a fine bike despite it's well documented limitations. I just wanted to
    ride above those.

    I've wanted a KTM since I was young and didn't see the reason to wait any longer.

    You know what? I really doesn't taste that bad.:fitz

    Well.... I was trying to get this thread back to normal "show us your bikes" stuff but is impossible. :huh

    But I must admit you guys are good… very good!!! :lol3:lol3:lol3:lol3:lol3:lol3:lol3:lol3:lol3:lol3

    The problem is if other "normal" people look at this thread they are not going to buy a Super T in case they become like us.... CRAZY... LOCOS!! :rofl

    And please Pluric dont wear this shoes again even if you ride a KTM, they are fugly :puke1:lol3

    Oh shit. Now someone has to come out and be a gentleman about it.
    Damn it. I was hoping to milk a little more time out of the day.

    Dallara nailed it. Just in the office bored to tears and found that KTM photo.
    One thing led to another and..........

    Now I have to back up and congratulate Jaumev on his stunning sticker mobile.:clap:clap

    That really is turning out very nice. I may have to get rid of the KTM and go back to a Tenere.
    (See the lead in?):evil


    I actually just ordered a new Christmas present for the Tenere. The OEM bag slides all
    over so much I've got to try something with a more stable harness system.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just say gay? It is a lot easier to spell.

    Love the Wolfman bags... I have a few. With a steel tank, I'm a fan of metro-magnetic tank bags. They tend to stay put the best and actually rub the paint the least... if you keep it's bottom clean.

    Yeah, I've got a couple of them and they seem to stay in place well.
    The OEM is all over the place off road. Always manages to fall to the
    side just as I need to turn the bars. I'll try this and see.
