"The dark side"
« on: September 13, 2013, 06:28:33 pm »
A well known and knowledgable person high up at the KTM factory explained recently why KTM motorcycles is referred to as "the dark side"...........

Apparently lots of electrical failures leaving their owners without lights........ :pot:

Almost like the old British bikes, where the electrical component manufacturer was called Joe "prince of darkness" Lucas. :imaposer: :imaposer:


BMW is now so pathetic, I am looking for other manufacturers to bash. I actually do not want to be associated with BMW at all anymore. :deal:

Nee , nee , nee  Daan , weet nie wat se versnapperingkie jy nou geniet nie , maar gooi vir jou iets sterker , dan probeer jy weer . Flippet , julle Yamaha manne kan darem n ding holrug ry . Wanneer kry jy nou vir jou ook n fiets soos n KTM of n BMW  ?

O fnok , ek trek my voorstel terug , dis fietse wat baie meer as 30kw uitskop nadat  hulle op n dyno gestel is .  :imaposer:

Jy het my ingetrek omdat ek laai om te sit en kak gesels met die diere.  So dis basies jou mooi, vriendelike persoonlikheid en disposisie wat my gelok het.  Jou bike en myne is bloot toeval.

Om nie te praat van 2SD se empatieke sienswyses van ander se keuses in motorfietse asook sy diplomatiese en taktvolle benaderings tot hulle opinies nie.

Ek glo dat as jy nodig het om "taktvol" oor n ander ou se keuse te wees, vol jy eintlik jammer vir hom. Se n ding soos dit is, en die hoorder moet dit maar hanteer.

Ek het ook al gehoor van persone wat so met diere praat. Hulle moet hulself antwoord.

Picking on a KTM coz of their lights actually shows how good they are ......  ::)

wrong type of bait, 2SD, but keep fishing - it's a sport of patience, after all  :thumleft:

Eendag is eendag, dan gaan iemand met 'n kort lont jou ernstig opneem en jou doner!   ;)

En dit gaan nie die 1ste keer wees nie.

Maar n ou met n kort lont het seker ook probleme om girlfriend/vrou happy te hou? :pot:

:imaposer:  Ja, maar ek dink daars 'n verskil tussen lont en 'lont'.
