New to KTM - Hello from San Francisco

Postby TheZuck » Mon Sep 18, 2017 11:44 pm

Hello friends -- I'm new to KTM, coming from a 2013 Ducati Monster 1100 Evo to a 2017 KTM Super Duke R.

So far I have it in "rain" mode and still have a ways to go on the break-in period for the engine (and tyres, even), so I haven't really experienced the full potential yet.

I posted the bike photo on Reddit and was invited to this site by one of the admins here, so thanks!

Here's the new Beast getting a final buffing by the dealer this Saturday: https://i.imgur.com/s1HaNhZ.jpg

Welcome and howdy from somewhere else in the 7x7!

Are they buffing out the drool spots that've accumulated from the showroom display?
