I was hoping for the acceleration of a stabbed rat, the cornering ability of a house fly and the suspension, plush yet firm, of a porn stars breasts...and the grip of an eagle with cramp..
Let's see...

You need a delivery bike to be monotonously reliable, that is the point of a delivery, that it actually gets delivered.........on time.

I do not think KTM is quite there yet.

Who cares about reliability of a delivery bike when the boss rides it?  ;D

No personal experience, but I've heard that those 450's really do deliver.  :biggrin:

I get a warm heart in the feeling that with every yearly tax return I am charging SARS  min.$ as a discount for my flotilla of bikes which may be put up in the fight against tax abuse.
But my costs keep rolling on. Need to get a 790 ADV soon to stay current after Zuma fucks-off to Zimbabwe.

Damnit......thanks for those pics...
I was seriously considering trading the LC on a new 850GS but the more I look at this, the more it speaks to me.
Knowing what I know about my 690, if this has the same DNA.....well......  :headbang:
It will be at least 2 years away though  :-\

Omninorm,
I was like you. GS to F850 but the weight of the new BMW is too much (only 15kg less than a GS R)
