Not another kiwi

Post by DaveW » Tue Jan 16, 2018 4:54 am

Hi all
I've been looking on this forum for quite some time.
Interesting finding out how everyone is enjoying their GTs
And stories been told.

brought mine last January (2017). It's my 3rd ktm
950 supermotard, 990 superduke so it's running in my veins.
Dave from New Pylmouth,
I see you are heading down to Burt this year.
Hopefully we could catch..?
I've attached a couple of picks of my GT.
Done 10k pipe and a few rotty mods.
Cheers (another) Dave

We staying in Haast on the 6th, (but could change depending on weather and Auckland boys) so could quite likely catch up, we meeting 5 other guys in Haast from Taranaki, so will be a large group. Oh i see your from the SI, near Christchurch (google) I'm from Urenui, you may need to google also. :D

Hi Auzzy Dave,
It's the orange blood in our veins and the big smiles on our faces that tells us apart. Mates of mine arnt called Dave because they have BMWs :D
I hope your mate called " Dave" and his wife gets well soon.
The Christchurch ktm dealer has sold 7 GTs So are dam popular around this part of the country.

Cheers Dave
