What are you guys doing? Trying to clear bark busters? I recomend bending the bark busters. You will want as long a lever as possible for a long day on the trails.

Isn't it past time for someone to answer this question by pointing out that they use 78% nitrogen in their tires?

Oh, forgot about the gray ones. OK, green or gray valve caps on these bikes. What oil do you use on the threads of those gray caps? Green caps?

Here's what I heard...

KTM is not buying Husqvarna. Stephan Pierer, CEO of Cross Industries AG (holding company that owns KTM) sold his *personal* 51% owning share of KTM to Bajaj India (which makes KTM a wholly-Indian-owned company) and the holding company that HE owns (Piere Industrie AG - which owns Husaberg) is buying Husqvarna. It remains to be seen if he will resign as CEO of Cross and reunite Husky and Husaberg, or if he's going to blend Husky into the "common platform" mix with KTM and Husaberg. His stated goal is to double Husky's sales by the end of 2014. There is a LOT of "KTM buying Husky" all over the bike sites, it broke first on MCN, and we all know how accurate those guys are (insert eye roll here).

Does that mean the new KTM 990ADV will have a Royal Enfield engine?

YA BIG WIMP!! I've always cut my levers down to where I use two or three fingers on the clutch and two on the brake. It's an old MX thing I guess.

Motorcycle lifts?

I like the tall milk crate with a piece of 3/4" ply on top.



But then I got a used Handy lift. Best money I ever spent.
