it be new bike time....
« on: August 31, 2017, 12:03:14 AM »
In just over a week I'll be picking up a new steed, grabbing myself a 2017 KTM 390 Duke. They are a tonne of fun and pretty practical too and it'll have mudguards so I'll be able to ride it even when water is falling out the sky and stuff too! :D

pics to follow....

Sounds good. Is this replacing one off your other bikes or is this number three?

Good job Pete, considering all the bits you have got for it already! Look forward to seeing it!

They are great bikes Pete, I'm sure you'll be happy with it. Any mods in the pipeline yet?  ;)

already have a can and de-cat pipe and a tail tidy and paddock stand bobbins. Will get a free flowing air filter soon and a power commander once they release one for the 2017 version unless I can get the standard ECU flashed. I'll probs change the coolant for somit that doesn't heat up so fast too at somepoint as they have a habit of getting hot

I like the drone too, but you do need to polish your piloting skills!

it was a mixed bag, actually my drone footage was not even my bike as it had to go back for an ECU error. Got mine back now though. It is lovely to ride although very different from the V7. Will be posting a proper first ride video in the next few days! :)
