Fixed. I think that second gear wheelie two years ago on New Years ago went swimmingly well. Now, where's that vid?

I am so glad those KTM mind games don't work on me....now move along the KTM isn't the bike your looking for.

HP2 = High Performance 2 cylinder

That's because they didn't get it right the first time.

Gentlemen....having ridden both of these majestic beasts, I must say they both have their good and bad points.

The HP2 has a motor that never stops pulling (at least as long as I was willing to twist it), but it didn't seem as nimble...oh it would stand up in a heartbeat, but if I remember right it took a bit more effort to turn.

The KTM is nimble and very responsive...you can get there and get there fast, but it's very touchy

What it really comes down to taste....riding a KTM is often referred to as "drinking the Kool-aid" ....flavored and with a sugar high....
BMW...well it has bottled water

Just so you are happy...I will probably own a KTM someday but just because it has two wheels.

Uhh, except I don't think I can ride any of those..and I don't shoot. How about something like "U-turns on a steep hill", or maybe "kick starting the KLX110" or something else I might actually succeed at? I can't do 15 events and goose-egg them all!

Just look at it like you are entertainment for the rest of us.
