Like all 950/990 SM(T)'s
But they score way high on the funscale, i'd rather ride an SM(T) then any other badass looking streetbikebike on the market.

Same deal with the crotch rockets, the BMW looks not as good to other supersports. But the thing is 100x more fun to ride.

To me riding is about the pleasure, not the posing. I don't find my Adventure 950 very attractive. If people say it's ugly i can't disagree on that.
But when i get on or off it the thing feels so awesome in my hands, the big and heavy hooligan steed has the best potential and most riding sensation of all adventure and touring bikes out there.
THAT is why i ride it. It's basically the reason why i ride KTM, no other brand makes riding so fun.

On slow corners with a slippery surface, yes. Fast corners are always 'kiss the mirror' hang-offs. I always lean with my upperbody towards the turn and then let the bike follow.

I'm down near Fayetteville, with a SMT. We need to take them up to the mountains this spring!
