Today is a great day in the garage. Bike has 400 miles and it's time to get rid of that proboscis sticking off the rear and add the Ktm Carbon slip on holder. Since the rear seat cover is in order, the passenger foot pegs are going too.
My Duke took a hit tonight. I was away for a week. Came home and jumped on the bike. Truck in front of me kicks up a baseball sized rock and I tried to avoid it but.....
header pipe sacrificed itself to save the oil reservoirs life. And / or prevent a very probable cracked right side engine case. I went over the whole right side while holding back the urge to vomit and that appears to be the only impact point. Not happy, but very lucky at the same time. My new baby has a hell of a bruise.
