Silver for me

Post by John W » Tue Jul 13, 2010 1:27 pm

After test riding lots of different machines including the new 1200 GS and Multistrada ABS I was getting a bit disheartened with the prospect of upgrading from my 1150 GSA nothing really stood out, they all had loads of gadgets which I dont want or need and they all seemed.....nice enough but just didnt lift my skirt, if you know what I mean. The only manufacture I hadnt tried and for some reason never considered was KTM. Actually I do know why I had not considered KTM a mate of mine had a 690 SM that just never went well and was generally a pain in the arse, I took the pi55 out of him for two years about that bike, I am now having a taste of my own medicine, however long story short, after five mins on the SMT I knew it was the one for me, five days later picked up my new silver SMT.Whoooooooooa

I cant explain why but this bike just seems to have it, whatever it is. I do know this bike will probably not be as robust as the 1150 GSA and reading some of the posts on here may even drive me to use course language from time to time but this time I think it could be love.

I decided the silver ones weren't worth a light - so I'm getting mine painted black to match the tank with white decals (copied from the originals, btw - the originals have a couple of faults on them when you look close enough) to go down the side.

Until I get them back I'll leave the white side panels on.

And I defy anyone to find my bike (silver, white or black) slow in any way shape or form!

I dont know how you guys do it on the other side of the pond, with all your crap weather. :o

With the exception of a few summer storms :shock: we can ride 365 days a year here

I would get withdrawal symptoms if I couldnt ride at least 5 times a week :lol:

Last year I put my bike away in December and had it out again March 1st and as I look out the grass is white for the first time this year. Winters even up here in Canada haven't been what they used too. I accumulate well over 20,000 km a year so I can only imagine how many I would rack up if I could ride all year. I have to own 2 bikes to spread the mileage out so I don't wear them out in a couple of years.
