Thanks for the article. I've been to Intermot several times. That show really does make the stuff we have here in the states look pretty lame.

Some of their bikes look Great compared to the cars. What happened? They used to have some of the best looking cars on the road. "Progress" isn't Always a good thing.

I can believe it. It seems to make more sense than flying cars which have been in existence since the 40s or 50s. Theres a new flying car I read about somewhere recently.



A motorcycles obviously lighter and capable of quicker acceleration, resulting in less lift required and shorter takeoffs and landings.

I think you're being a bit presumptuous. I'm shoddy and I know it.

I do give them credit for being distinctive. And to be fair, not every styling element is unattractive. But the sum of the parts leaves a bit to be desired.



I'm usually a function over form type of guy. But there is a balance. The KTM seems to have crossed over the line by a few yards.

I thought you said the damage wasn't that extensive? Dude, that thing's been in the shop for like a month!



I'd not go back, if I had a shop that was as slow as this one.
