Oh, right... I bought it from someone from New Zealand. This model was not released in U.S. You may be able to still find it in Europe, but I'm not sure if they still make this particular one.

It's difficult to understand why the distributors of this equipment don't care to reap the millions they could make marketing this stuff in the US. Are they stupid? Lazy? It just does not figure. Crap. I personaly know three people right now that would spring for a KTM Rally Suit in an instant. I know one who ordered one and went to Europe to get it and still failed. Just ridiculous.

And stretch

both achilles tendons whilst wishing you had had Precision Concepts work on your suspension as opposed to spending the money on the Touratech windscreen and dreaming of that extra 3 inches the 2003/4 950s gives you over your 990 EFi low...
