The euros always get the cool stuff first. I thought about Canada but they are not getting them either. KTM dealer meeting is in 2 weeks so may get some answers.

They're definitely fun and I love the bike. I'd feel better about myself had I "built" a supermoto rather than bought one.

Looking good, Tony.

For sure these bikes are a blast, I just hope they start sending them to the states before I wear this one out. LOL

The nice thing about motards is you can have a blast without the complications of the high speeds the supersport bikes attain. Liter bikes and 600s have you over 100mph in a couple of seconds or shifts. The seating positon/visibility over cars and the detour options make them great in neighborhood and city. Just don't go on a freeway run with your buddies on sportbikes. Quiet exhaust are a plus for neighborhood stealth operations - I should practice what I preach, my 625 is so loud it makes hardley rider cringe.

We need to organize another hill country supermoto ride. That was a blast

Eastwood dual voltage kit, large toaster Oven, I use aircraft paint stripper to remove paint. Give it a wipe down with acetone to remove impurities, spray and bake.
