Split Orange Crush

Can we have a split so I don't have to wade through pages of 1190 shit to get to the proper 950/990 Adventure stuff.

What's wrong with the existing Road Warriors forum for 1190 traffic

Joking aside, if people are serious you might want to post a link to this thread in the Ask Baldy forum.

Also, this is one of those rare cases where maybe a "poll" works, not sure if you can edit the first post to enable that?

We could move the 950 / 990 to Olds Cool


Split would do the trick.

You're a brave man!

Thanks for saying what most of us are probably thinking!

The 1190 is an amazing bike but it need to know it's place.

Thumbs down

Absolutely, and all of the 990/950 riders that ride majority of street or anything less than 51% dirt should go to road warriors, and anyone who rides with hard luggage, or has installed hand warmers, or, GPS, or any other creature comforts. Also, anyone with ABS, non-knobby tires, etc, etc, etc.

Also, anyone who has ever had a dealer install a tire doesn't belong amongst the elite..

Lets start a KTM against KTM war! Sounds productive to me, and should bring all of the like minded together against a common enemy!...

Yeah, split it, It would be a lot more useful for both groups.

Yep split it.... Just like G Spot.

I dont see it as us and them, its just logical to keep each bike in their own area.
