Hi from a Brit

Postby 1stGarry » Sun Mar 19, 2006 6:49 pm

Hi folks.
Great to find a Superduke forum, the other KTM forums seem 99% focused on off-road stuff!

Thanks to Boysie for pointing me in the direction of this site. In return I gave him a laugh when I commented that my fuel gauge permanently reads 1/2 full!!!! He very patiently pointed out that it was, in fact, the temperature gauge!!!!! :oops: :lol:
My excuse......erm......well I've only had the bike a few weeks....sorry that's the best I can come up with :)

Think I'll go and read the owners handbook!!! :lol:

I'm based in West Sussex on the south coast of the UK.

hi and thanks for joining Gary,

the more (english speaking) members the better...

hope you find the forum useful, it was created out of frustration due to so many non-english-language forums i found on the net while searching for a superduke forum (which i could actually understand what was written)

Brilliant :D

I am from Shoreham and i think there another couple not too far away aswell.
Looks like we should have a meet-up soon. 4 or 5 SDs will make quite a sight :twisted:

Sounds like a plan :)
I'm up at Whiteways / Bury Hill most Sundays - that's where I met Boysie!

Hi chaps and chapesses

Hello from the smoke (N London) I'll be getting a Super duke soon I hope. Went for a test drive on one at the weekend (thanks to Andy @ Premier bikes) and what a tool the SD is :twisted: ....awsome bike!!

Currently got a Duke 2 (quality for ripping up the streets of London)as soon as i've sold that i'll be on the phone to Andy....

Anyway would be well up for a spin - when I have the beast

out for now

Hello

I bought my 2nd hand SD from Andy @ Premier bikes - top bloke, certainly recommend.

I went out with my local Advanced M/C group at the weeked - only issue is tank range, they can all go a bit further on a tank but they don't have as much fun along the way :)

We'll have to have a ride out somewhere soon ...

Hi All

Just picked up my orange Superduke, rode it home from North Wales to my home in Watford!! I Changed from a 950 Adventure S.

Great bike, crap tank range!! :(

I wonder if i could get some feedback from you guys on some question I have?

Have read most of the threads on this forum regarding tank range, it seems that i can reasonably expect 85 - 90 miles of gentle riding before i run out of petrol, does this sound about right?

Would buying the carbon tank increase this amount by much?

My bike has Akropovic's on, do you think re-fitting the standard pipes would increase the range ?


Cheers in advance guys

Neil

welcome! :D

not sure about improved consumption with standard pipes, but if you want to try, i will gladly rip the akras out of your hand. :twisted:
