I live in north central Texas, looking for other SMT owners. I am actually riding around the three sisters and beyond this weekend. Anyone else want to join?

Pretty sure I was in the Leakey area the same time as you were(on my SMT). First weekend of hunting season, a local Buell group I belong to spend the weekend riding out there. Good times. Butch from Camp Live Oak is good people, and the cabins are fantastic. I am in Austin, BTW.

That is one of my favorite rides in Texas. That was the first weekend I had the SMT and really couldn't believe how well it performed. I am ready for the roads to thaw so I can get back to riding. IhSve had to drive in to work the last two days.

Sw-Motech Trax luggage (aka the KTM ally panniers) for the side cases, and some kind of therapy for the aux lighting. Or razorblades. Or vodka and sleeping pills.

Auxilliary lights make me get stabby.

Good move. Take the pills out of the blister pack first though. I dunno about you but my motor skills go to crap after a bottle or two of distilled potatoes.

New owner of a 2010 990 SMT, 6k miles checking in.

I'm located in Salty City, Utardia. Stumbled into this forum when I started looking for oil change instructions. (The best I've seen are here in the tech section from the Aussies, of course). Pretty quiet for an international forum but time to post up and say hello mates. I've been enamored by this bike since I test rode one in Sept. 2010 at the national KTM Rally in Moab, just stumbled upon this bike as a winter time need to sell and could not pass it by.

My handle is Sweetwater County, Wyoming, USA where I had the great pleasure of growing up as a Wild Wyoming Boy, working ranches on the west side of the Wind River Mountains, skiing Jackson Hole, family motel in Bondurant, cliff diving at Flaming Gorge, great memories of sparsely populated geography, back in the day.

Maryland here, just outside of DC. Picked my '11 SMT up in March, and rode to Austin for the MotoGP race 3 weeks later in April. By the end of May I had nearly doubled the mileage.
Love the bike, the low speed tuning not so much.
TuneECU, anyone nearby?

See you out there

I spoke with the Dealer (JT in Frederick) today. Nice group of guys. Anyhow- for what seemed like a fair price they would hook up my bike and see if KTM had anything to offer in the way of improved mapping. Possibly a euro version, if one was available. On other bikes it had provided a smoother low RPM ride and better gas mileage to boot. I'm checking my schedule to see when I can get it in. I'd feel pretty stupid if I bricked my own chip. Not to mention the lost riding time, and be back at square one. I'll report back on this.
