No bike till Wednesday.
Rode around a bit at the dealer-first ride on a KTM and first ride on a water cooled bike. The sound is a bit strange. Is there a great difference between a liquid cooled and air cooled engines as far as sounds? This thing sounds like a sewing machine. Maybe the engine noise is more audible when the exhaust is quiet? I can tell already from the short riding around that it will be great on the trails. After throwing around the DR's 360lbs this bike feels like a featherweight.
