Not a KTM, but I managed to do that last year to my BMW...

Keener would consider that mint condition. I've never seen anything that straight on his bike.

I put those under a press and coax them back into shape. I've only done a couple, but they haven't cracked, yet.

the f650's front rims are made of a rare butter-aluminium alloy only found in the deepest mines in Germany.

Night one will include a pick-up ball hockey game - Canada VS USA....

MX boots for goal posts. Whoever has the best protective gear on each side gets to be goalie.

Ref will be any non-USA or Canadian passport holder.

LET THE BEST SIDE WIN!

Rudy would have been the perfect neutral ref. I may have to tell Reshmi that his not being there could potentially cause an international incident and that it will be her fault. it is a low shot but I want my riding partner back.

On the game side I propose that each goal scored causes the other team to drink. It may make a short game of it but the loosing team probably wont carre when it is done
