I have the highest respect for every forum member I've met

- Across EVERY bike brand

I like brand bashing  >:D, but if I dish it out - I must can take it too

I am really very disappointed where this thread ended up. I was honestly just interested and eager to hear what the guy's had to say about the rally raid, now this just turned into shit, because people assume things.

That's what he missed Plothond, I wasn't bashing him or KTM or the riders or his bloody suit.

In any case for the guy's that went, I really would love to read your reports.

Yes failure from the Orange to post reports, or was there a ban on cameras? >:D

Short sighted? ... may i pose the question?,if you guys can try not not get all huffy.
Why is it that it's always a BMW okes that knocks KTM riders, the KLR, Honda, DL okes doen't have this chip on their shoulders. Your bikes will never be in our league, and you should, maybe stop comparing the two (i think this is going to get me fired from this forum).
BTW you okies should be able to take what you dish out, or didn't you read chapter 4.2 in your ownwers manual "how take take critism from other riders", this chapter is right near the back of the manual, between 4.1 - " how to disguise a broken final drive' and 4.3 - "Maintaning the boxer since world war one"

Elmo. Your comments are uncalled for

There is a stereotype that BM riders are boring old ballies and KTM riders are arrogant assholes. We have spent a long time breaking down this stereotype and have almost arrived at the point where we can all have respect each other.
Don't destroy all that has been achieved by unfair comments.

The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

What do you mean :

Ek laaik om julle almal k@k te gee omdat julle blerrie kapitaliste is wat te veel geld spandeer op julle BM's, KTM's, Suzuki's Honda's, etc.

Only difference is that I don't aim it at one specific brand, all you okes are fair game.....


Sorry Michnus, you can continue with the original intent of this fred.
Don't look back, that's not where you're going.

You decide - you've got an excellent talent to make yourself very unpopular.  (Don't try to laugh it off, most of your previous posts were directed at brand bashing so I will not give you the benefit)

PS:
To the other KTM fans be assured you're not regarded as the same kind

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away
