Re: Expectations exceeded

After 400 km of country laning last weekend and loving the bike despite the throttle control issues, I was back on the daily commute Monday with lots of steady slow driving and filtering. Once again hating the bloody coughing Austrian for it´s complete inability to run properly on a steady throttle ...

Re: Hello !

Welcome Matte,

congratulations, the SMT will make your smile a lot wider. Limey's comment "not a fan of constant revs" and riding it like a dirt bike is spot on. On constant throttle it's as cultivated as my Husky 510 TE -91...

Re: Wings with Acra map

27 views and no comment! Reminds me of debates in the old Soviet legislative assembly. Anyways, attention is always appreciated. Looking through old posts, the stuff i mention seems to come with the package, and I'm fully capable of riding around these traits with a huge smile just loving the bike. ...

Wings with Acra map

Hi, bought my SMT -11 last month and since the MoT was just around the corner I asked to have the large dB killers installed. Passed the MoT today with flying colours, so now is a good time to try stuff. I find the fuelling iffy when filtering, it misses a stroke now and then and you get that "ooomp...

Re: Expectations exceeded

My background is mainly in MX/enduro with a lot of d...
