Looks like someone figured out which side the throttle is on...

I flogged that poor bastard harder than ever on that trip. It's from the flat lands you know.

I'm going to find you a nice wee strom. Something for you to put a tent and some bags on and ride a few thousand miles or so.

I'm leaning more toward the KTM 990 Supermoto. It makes me willy tingle!

Pete said...

It will make more than your willy tingle...

I think you could slap some bags on one. We need to go to Memphis. Ribs, cigars and booze. From Memphis it's about a solid day of backroads to the dragon...

They offer bags for it, plus I'm sure there are some "universal" bags that will work. I have no idea how to pull it off, but I may be ready by next summer. I'm certain she's worth the wait.

I have seen a few come up used here and there... and I have a friend that owns a ktm store in austin...

Pete said...

supermoto or duke?

Sid Fishious said...

990 Supermoto for sure. I like the plain o'standard. The "R" has a smaller tank and the "T" looks different. You can add a windscreen and bags, so it's good to go on the long.
