New KTM dealer in The Dalles Oregon

A little bird told me they're taking on the complete line, little bikes, big bikes, off road and street. I heard this from several semi-reliable sources.

I heard it from all three of those guys

Things like that don't stay secret very long. Are they bringing in a new mechanic for the ktm line or training one of their guys?

One of each, please

That should be a good replacement for their slow-selling Beta bikes

They sold the last of the Beta's for half price. I should have bought one. At least I ended up with there Beta sign.

Of course my old 990 would still have a place in this new fun-filled garage.
KTMs love abuse....I love abusing them.
It's a match made in heaven.
Now only if that lottery investment would pay off like they advertise.....

No, the combination I meant was that of your riding style, your choice of terrain, and a 150 hp.
