The KTM website says the new bikes have a "redesigned cockpit",,I cant figure out whats different from 2010.

Anyone have any pictures?

I'm going to find out for myself in two weeks but for now I don't even have a broshure to lust over.

Okay, so it's nothing that's gonna knock you guys' socks off yet, but I'm working with Kurt and Martha at Black Dog Cycle Works (um, are they the nicest folks in the world or what?), and soon, very soon, my ride will be as cool as some of the others on here.

I'm taking off next week for a solo tour of the Southwest, so I'll post some bike pics from nifty locations.

Cheers, and thanks for the resource!


Yes, apparently they are!

Fantastic folks!

First ride of 2011!!!!

Still a little wet and snowy
This was one of the most fun rides of all time! Very challenging riding a 500lb bike in the snow, ice, mud, deep water... all at the same time!








My favorite :)
