You could probably use a new bike .....
hahahahahah, well doneI'm set with my budget middleweight - bring on all comers baby - Flashed Star Raiders -, 243hp H2 SX's - you name it.
I'm an Admitted and well documented bike whore - I can take the shit slinging. You'd think it was a crime bouncing from one bike to the next trying to single handedly keep the 2-wheeled powersports industry afloat the way these yahoo's poke fun of me.
i can laugh a little at this cant I?
hahahahahah, well done
them's fighting words, tell you what.. come spring time it will be a while since i've been to Tofino..
i'll have to drop you a line when i hop over-there..
hahahaha, classic..I'll ride with one hand only and you pick which gear I can use - 3rd or 4th. Oh, and tell me how you like your coffee and I'll have it ready for you when you get there. :coffee
100hp-ish middleweight Parallel twin naked that's 80-90lbs less than the 1100 - Sounds like KTM already built it and called it the 790 Duke. :laughingWell speaking of middle weights, i'm hoping Aprilia does a 660 Tuono on the new platform. That would be a bike that would really interest me.
Didn't do Tofino this year due to all of the road construction and delays, but next year...hahahaha, classic..
Tofino too far? you do realize its within the boundaries of Vancouver Island.. How do you even live with yourself :flashy :laughing
(tongue firmly planted on cheek).
Okay, fair point on the suspension but as a counter point I'd say that almost all owners of Tuono's swap out the boingers as well for Factory spec or RSV units, so there's that...i didnt say base model suspension, and high maintenance costs
So you weren't the guy who ordered his Ohlins shock with our Pal Kurt? (Wet Dog) Interesting...I know a few Tuono riders, and i'm the only one who's swapped out any suspension components, and based off my time on the Af1 forums, I think your assessment there is quite inaccurate.
From what i've read online (and maybe only related to early production units), is that the 790 motors has had quite a few issues, with oil leaks being very common.
I'd also guess that stock adjustable Sachs is much better than the completely non-adjustable WP units.
but RS660 to Mini-Duke is an apples to orange comparison.
