    So what was the result of the T7 vs 990 shootout?

    Aside from the usual constant of the bike with Phil on it being faster :lol3

    The KTM will certainly win in a drag race.

The tunnel is cool, it had a collapse a few years ago and they cut a new road nearby, but after a number of slips on the cutting they reopened the tunnel. In the middle of the tunnel there’s a big void above you where the roof had fallen in.
