Kevin in southern Maryland, I am getting too old for this , but I just can't stop(riding). I have a more than my share of bikes, but I am letting a few of them go in off season.My favorite Aprilia? Does a Ducati 900SS count ?It's been sold off.Otherwise,no Aprilias.But, I do like unusual bikes,sometimes called "boutique bikes". I have a 1982 Maico 490,some Cannondales,ATKs,an older RM250,KX250,3 RZ350s,RD400,a GSXR600(trackdays),98 VTR1000,FZ750,and my NEW love:KTM690SM. My dream bike could be a number of bikes,but to make this short and sweet,I'll say: the new Ducati motard looks like it could be a blast to ride!I did recently consider a Triumph Tiger 1050.The KTM won out.My favorite place to ride dirt is Budds Creek MX park,my favorite roadcourse is VIR north.

New to forum and KTM

Hello!

Steve form Temecula, California here. Just picked up a 690SMC last week and I'de have to say, it's quite cool. As a manager at a San Diego shop I've had the opportunity to own and ride many bikes but I'm diggin this one right now.

I've owned

1993 Yamaha Seca II
1996 Ducati 900SS SP
1996 BMW K75S
2002 Triumph Speed tripple
2002 Triumph TT600
2004 F650S
2005 Honda XR650
2005 BMW K1200RS
2006 Kawasaki ZX1000R

I just realized how indecisive i am and how much money i've probably thrown away. The SMC was totally irational but I think I'm okay with it. Anyway- I hope to share some good info and learn a little from you all.

Later...

Hi I'm Nick from Sydney, quickly approaching the big 40 and recently got back into the bikes. Grew up riding two strokes and glad to see KTM still carrying the torch for us. Love my EXC 300, although it has tried to kill me a few times in the last 6 months. Much better than the old bikes I used to ride.

I also own a KDX 200 which is the first bike I bought when I decide to ride again. Thought it was pretty quick until I got on the 300...woweee!:eek: What a bike, fast light and aggressive - the way a dirtbike should be . Will probably ditch the KDX soon - its getting a bit past it's used by date.

Started riding when I was about 7 yrs old on a Honda Z50 , then C90s and a RM80 in my early teens, then got a XT 200 for my courting days -cheap bike but hardly off-road. Parents sold ity when I went OS in my twenties :mad:

I think I'm riding my dream bike (EXC 300) woud like a nwere model perhaps. Would like a LC4 690 for the country roads, but a bit pricey innit.

I like riding in Belanglo Forest (yes the one where Ivan Milat did his nasty work). Its about 1.5 hrs from Sydney, some good single track and firetrails out there.


Anyway, that's me. KTM u ROCK!!

Hi

I'm Danie Bellingan from Bloemfontein, South Africa. I'm a 32 year old military attack helo pilot. About two weeks ago I upgraded from a KLR to a 950 Adventure.

I used my KLR for commuting, hunting and off road "touring" in the Bloemfontein area. My first trip with the KTM will be to Lesotho (early 2010). In the near future I also want to tour to Namibia, Botswana and Mocambique.

Hi, I'm Big Hoot. You can just call me big hoot.
I just bought my 13 year old son a KTM 105 sx moto bike. He loves it!
I had a Honda CR250, Suzuki PE175, and a Honda SuperSport 750 (long ago).
My son has had a Yamaha TTR-90, a Yamaha TTR-125 and this KTM 105 sx.
We also have ATVs, Kaw Prailie 300, Yamaha Grizzly 550 '09 and a generic rice bunner.
We live in LA. (That's Lower Alabama). Land of thick mud, big deer and little else.
We are not racers, we just play.
