    It’s already started. He sent me 15 messages about “what oil do you use?”. I’m waiting for “does it use premium unleaded?” and, “what pressure do you run the tyres at?”..... enjoy it mate.

    Noice!

    So did you sell the KTM, or are you going down the “he who dies with the most toys wins” philosophy?

    I believe in NSW all 91 has to have a % of ethanol in it by law?
