"Tell that to Joe Pichler..."

No offense to Joe as I have great respect for his RTW travels, but on Joe's website he lists KTM with many other companies as his sponsors. Might this have a tendency to skew the report some what?
Perhap the best reports on bike performance & reliability are by those who have no connections, and purchased their bike from a dealer.

Wish we could get one into the hands of Craig Johnson (CJ Designs). He'd ride the hell out of it and give us his honest opinion whether or not it's a winner or loser.

Yes , i agree with you on that one. CJ has the skills and the technical back ground.

Gregster....does 990 looks dated to you? You don't have a clue what you're talking about.Just look at the current Dakar bikes.How do they look? I would say more less the same as that 10+ years old 950/990.Shouldn't you go to specsavers?

Nevermind the bike, how do you get your garage to stay that clean and uncluttered?
