Hooray! In at last

Postby Gimlet » Fri Aug 05, 2016 7:30 am

Hello all from Dorset, England. In at last after some registration difficulties. (Thanks KTMGUY)
Bought a big orange un new in March and its just gone past 6000 miles. Best bike I've ever owned and I can't keep off it. Soon be due its fourth rear tyre. Had the Evo decat system fitted a couple of months ago and now I'm thinking about airbox/remapping mods for when the warranty expires.

SMT owner as well. Thought I'd be selling that to pay for the SDR but I can't bring myself to part with it. Off touring on it soon.
Got a Ducati as well and that may have to go as I've got a hankering for a 690 SMC.
Guess I'm firmly part of the KTM family now. Anyone want a blue-printed 1098 Streetfighter?

Would you be the same Gimlet as he who is on the SW Bikers forum perchance?

That's me! I get about. I'm Knapper on the UK KTM forum as well. Billinom8s is on here too somewhere isn't he? Now he's seen the light and bought a proper bike.
I shall be tagging along for his friendly ride on the 14th if I can eke out my rear tyre till then. :mrgreen:

Thanks for the welcome everyone.
Sorry Scotty, can't do next week at Cadwell. I'm not really track ready yet anyway - no van for a start. I wasn't even ready for Llandow... But I'm off for a bimble round Wales week after next and next week I'm flat out getting work finished.
