    @Cruz you should share your secret about getting taller over the years, I’m sure some on here would love to as well


    I suppose the weight is close @Blakduk if you compare wet weight to dry weight, but whats 10 or 15 kilo between friends

    You got to be careful with those, the clutch slave fails every time.

    An interesting spec that is never mentioned - probably because it would be hard to calculate - is the height of the centre of gravity.

    I have often wondered what it would be like to set up a chain block with a load cell off the handlebars with various bikes at about a 60° angle and see what it says

    I’m amazed to see how few bikes are for sale on Bikepoint & Dumbtree. Even all of the old 2017/18/19 KTM 1090 and 1290 floor stock has been snapped up.

    There’s gonna be some bargain buys coming in 12 to 18 months .....

    the other day i counted 6 WR450's for sale. I recall seeing 50 + before this covid started. Try buying a decent 2nd hand EXC-none.

    Well my mate put his KTM500 on Scumtree. I told him he is wasting his time and it should be on bikesales. 11 KTM500's in all of Australia on Bikesales atm, and nothing earlier than 2017. (His is 2016). $75(?) well spent I'd think.
