I hope that you do!
I read all of Pydon's thread on his moto. While I am not too impressed with the total engine over haul including the crank-cases being replaced, it seems that most of the faulty issues have been addressed by KTM during the preceding years, including some dowels that may eliminate the reason his cases were replaced. I guess the problem from my perspective is that not many of these motos are used as Adventure Tourers, which is how I will use mine. There is no doubt that I will be adding miles pretty quickly, or I will when I sell my house! Maybe I will answer my own question, of course one moto whether it has a good experience or bad, does not establish an average or an expected life span. I really like my KTM and if it performs to my expectation as an acceptable tool, it will get replaced by another KTM. They havetubelesss wheels now and all kinds of electronic aids, if they can just get one of those eight plus gallon gas tanks, I will be very happy!
