Obviously the first two weren't me, as you know I ONLY ride KTMs! Never ridden anything else... No sir... and I damn sure wouldn't be caught dead in a Whale Foreskin suit, so the last one's couldn't have been me either!

If you look closely, you can see Todd's whale foreskin suit liner.

Yes, but as 1200 owners will often retort, "It feels lighter than it is."

Yeah I bought it thinking I wanted a street bike, but quickly realized that riding pavement bores me and I found myself riding that thing in places some people have trouble with 250s and trying to keep up with Paul and Chris. Beleive it or not though it's easier to pick up a GSA than my 950 SE was, because of the heads sticking out the sides. I picked it up solo, fully loaded, with seven + gallons of fuel in the tank no problem. I was never able to pick up my SE with my Giant Loop on the back. However...
