The white has seriously grown on me and I can hardly wait to see what mud brown does to enhance it, ;)

Ummmmm.....it's just a thought ....but, shouldn't the dangerous end be pointed towards the door?......or are you afraid it'll take off without you if it sees a sliver of daylight?

It all started with a KTM-sponsored (damn you KTM!) test ride on a 950 quite a few years ago.

And now...

Last weeks 1000 miles of filth

And all the dirt and memories washed away like tears in rain.



Where to next?
