Oh yeah, I did the center stand too. It should come standard.

16t front sprocket? What's stock, a 17? I'm already at 5000 rpm at 80mph, what's it run with the 16?

Should be indicating the same, just be more accurate indicated vs GPS.

Here is my 2012 all set up for a weekend trip.
Givi 46 top case, Garmin Zumo, tank bag, Leo Vince, Akro map, and an I-pod velcroed to the brake master cyl.
I have since added a Givi touring screen and plan on adding the CPR air filter.
Love the bike, I traded my 10 Ducati Multistrada 1200s in for this bike. KTM is much better running, and handling in my opinion. This bike is also much better at two up riding. The passenger isn't so far back over the rear tire as the MTS. The MTS just had too many electronic, brake, and maintenance issues for me. The MTS was a good bike but for me this bike is just more fun, better built, cheaper, and better handling.
I'm getting around 35 to 40 mpg riding like I stole it with no chicken strips on the rear tire.
I didn't have a problem at all with the stock Sport Attack tires but I only got around 1600 miles out of the rear tire. I have since installed a Pilot Road 3 on the rear. I should get around 4000 miles out of it for the way I ride.

I forget exactly but I seem to remember it was about 300 extra revs. Better manners in city. I typically keep it between 70-75 for my commute. No change to gas mileage for me. No change to indicated speed as the speed is read off the wheel.

I forgot to mention tires. I was not fond of the stockers in the rain. I put about 6k out of them before switching to Pilot Road 3's.

I just picked up a used but not abused 2010 Orange SM-T last Friday as a 40th B-Day gift to myself, and retiring my old 99 Cagiva Gran Canyon.

Glad you got a proper birthday present! As my riding buddy said to me the other day: "Go for it, Dude, we're almost fifty!"

Love this bike so much. If I could somehow find a way to pair it with my Tuono, I'd pretty much have my dream garage set.....until something else comes along :)

Took my '12 SMT for a little trip to Austria (it got homesick I guess).
Few pictures
Silvretta Stausee




Timmelsjoch




Bit of Italy


Austria again, coming down from Hahntenjoch


Grossglockner, going from north to south, bit cloudy


At the Edelweiss Spitze


It had been snowing above 1600m few days earlier, so there was a little bit left


Spent a day in the Dolomiti




Karnten


And when it was time to go back home the weather was really good so I decided to ride over the Grossglockner again


Parking lot at the Edelweiss Spitze was a bit crowded now




A few days earlier it looked like this....

Omly 2 SMT's there

Sure going to miss those roads back home




The SMT is really the perfect bike for this, at the moment there is no better bike ....until the 1190SMT comes along, may be

Nice pictures!

A 1198 SMT and a 750 SMT would be cool! I'd take a 750. I'm happy with my new Vstrom in the orange color too. Poor mans SMT.

I'm part of the club now!
Just picked up a 2010 with 7500km on it.

It's got the touring windshield, ktm tank bag and the little tiny panniers.

It's a bit small though. I'll be looking to lower the foot pegs and raise the bars. (I'm 196). Any advice? I've seen the motobau, fastways, pivots, DIY...

It's got so much more jam than my 640!

I test rode 990 smt today and it was great. Has more power than my 950 adventure. Brakes are super strong. FI was flawless.

I am looking for commuter (100 miles per day with lots of lane splitting) bike, and narrowed it down to SMT or Tiger 800. Didnt have a chance to ride tiger, but it feels top heavy and bulky.

My 950 is great, I just dont want to wear it down on commute miles.

What kind of mps people are you getting?
Do you have to relocate sidestand? On 950 it's mounted to the engine case and it can crack.
