Hey Gabe: great job as usual.



One very important thought, tho: you've got to snap the straps on your messenger bag. Doesn't the flap come up an slap the back of your head like your momma used to?

Default Yes, Alan Cathcart predicted it.

BMW will be racing it in their GP/Super Moto team with the Norton/Indian hybrid bike. It's the new "Hypothetical Race of Champions" series.

Default Thanks...

for allowing me to point out an excellent feature of the Aerostich messenger bag; it has a huge velcro strip! You really don't need to fasten the straps.



Thanks for paying attention!



Gabe

Johnny forgot half of the equation. Anybody that votes for a Republican OR a Democrat must be an idiot.

Did they even give you time to clean out your desk or did management just walk you right out of there?

Nice review Gabe. Entertaining and informative. Two snacks in one !



I know you where a tuono fan so how do you compare the two ? I have an 05 Tuono and love it but with my prediliction to trading bikes is the 950 a worthy successor ?



Probably should keep the Tuono, every time I consider trading, I can't figure out why I should.

It sounds like he's upset that KTM won't bring a problem plagued EFI model into the US. I really can't figure out what he's complaining about, except maybe that KTM America is a sinister organization.



Maybe they're owned by Halliburton.

Fouling plugs? Are you pre-mixing again?

I don't get it. It's a good bike or it's not, period. It says "quick ride" in the title. Not, "please provide a personal opinion on the business model of a company you know nothing about in an industry in which you have no experience"

That's it, I'm going to let Gabe test my Honda FMX1000. It can't be that far fetched. The FMX650 is being produced. The VTR is on the way out. Use the VTR motor in a modified 650. Then again, maybe I'm one of 20 people that would order one. I think the concept is perfect, a $8500 fun sport bike. I think the 950 and hypermotard are great bikes, but they are expensive for such a narrow use.
