So that Bites!

So, KTM's decision to ship their bikes to US dealers but needing software to activate the bike has bitten me in the ass. My dealer doesn't have the software/tool to do it, and so my bike sits..Paid for, ready to go, won't start. Dealer's hands are tied until he can get the parts/software, and right about X-mas time, anything overnighted/express shipped is dicy and a pain in the ass.

My dealer is doing everything he can (Thanks Santa fe Motorsports!) , but it's gonna put it out another few days...bummed. Just what it is. Was gonna pick her up at noon...

My R is in the garage!!! Carolina KTM is really the place to deal with. Small shop where you deal with the owner and enthusiast mechanics.

They have a Grey Adventure that really is beautiful. Photos don't do that grey one justice!!

FUUUUUUUUUUUU

Maybe make a weekend trip out of traveling to another dealer to buy one. It's seriously worth it.
