Awesome scenery, looks like a good place to ride! Did you get some dirt roads in as well - or is that second photo just a really badly surfaced road?

Yeah, the scenery is beautiful going through the Rockies. All the roads are good, the second picture is just off the asphalt. We did do some riding on a logging road (not pictured) and the SMT did great on the hard-pack.

Hey Pamuk, I didn't realize the SMT was already available in Canada...Did you buy your's in the US?? Last week I called Blackfoot and was told that they wont have any till spring and didn't Quite have the exact numbers yet, price wise.

I was all set to buy a GS but now reconsidering do to the SMT..Having said that I'd still like a little more off-road ability since I want to do few trips like Baja and Alaska. I think 6" of suspension travel should be enough for the basic easygoing stuff I want to do but would like to have a second set of 17" & 19" wire wheels. Wondering if anyone has done this yet and how did it work out...This shouldn't be to difficult on this being a KTM.

Any input on all this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.....V

Asked my Stealer the question re Wire Wheels, as I had the same thoughts as you, he advised wire wheels cant be fitted because of the dual discs. :?: I think he is a tosser. Am still investigating the possibility.

I got mine at Riverside Yamaha in St. Albert. They still had one left after I bought mine in September. I paid $13,000. I'm planning to do some hard pack and gravel roads next year so I'm looking into tires to do the job. Hate to give up the street performance, but might need some different tread if I run into some rain or loose dirt.

I don't even want to think about how long cleaning will take. That's why I got them SMT; bad conditions don't worry me anymore, unlike when I ride the GSXR1000.
