Is there something @Ri wants to tell us?
« on: January 09, 2020, 09:53:44 am »
I do not know if @Ri is secretly moving over to the dark side, but I saw her riding in from Somerset West to Cape Town this morning on a KTM 1290 SA T. The reason I know is that she pillioned me in to Town from Somerset West on the KTM. And what I can tell is that CAN ride. Step aside Taye Perry and Kirsten Landman. Ri is showing from what she is made of.

@Grrrr, @cocky and @Dux, I think there is a KTM in Ri's stable one of these days. A 1290 maybe??? :pot: :peepwall:
What I can say is that Ri was full of smiles when she stopped in Town and looked really eager to ride again. Well done Ri, I was sitting really relaxed at the back, laughing a bit inside my helmet when Ri was opening up the throttle and enjoying every bit of it.  :thumleft: :ricky:

Unfortunately I cannot attach pics from my phone, soo......Ri to attach pics to proof I am not lying.

We await the pic Ri.

I'm no lawyer but if I'm not mistaken the responsibility lies with you to prove you are right  :lol8:

She doesn't have to prove anything.  You are making the statement  :deal:

But how did Ri reached the ground, the 1290 is rather high!  :deal:

Well done Ri, can I congratulate you on the move to the dark side already ???

@Jehan I think you mistake the a rictus of fear for smiles. You said it was lower >:(

Thanks for making me ride the KTM 1290 T, it actually was great fun (until I had to come to a wobbly stop)!! I could almost feel the relief pouring off Jehan when he hopped off and caught the bike, LOL. The power on that thing is awesome, I blinked and I was at 141kph...!

Kirsten and Taye have nothing to fear from me, I'm too old to embrace immortality ::)

I won't ever buy something this big and heavy, but I am considering whether I should take the KTM 790 for a spin. The soft clutch and the ready power is a little addictive  :drif:

I didn't reach the ground, I was wavering on tippy toes. Jehan kicked the side stand out to kill the engine while I was still hunting for neutral :imaposer:

When I tried it on level ground, 2-up, I could get the balls of my feet down. But of course where do you find level ground when you're in a hurry to stop. And when the 2nd up hops off and a 200+ kg behemoth starts to lean over, how do you stop it...!!

Tippy toes is not good if you intend to Take that collosus bike off road.

Since you already made up your mind to go KeepThrowingMoney, consider the 1050/90 as well, probably the same height, but a little lighter?

I saw it on FB this morning. :imaposer:

I have the R (taller) and I can't flat foot it, but I don't feel that you need to have both feet down at once, so just scoot your butt to the side and flatfoot one side.

I can touch both feet at once, but not flat by any means.

Rust&Ri, or

Ri&Rust, why not?

Even Jess Sukhugiran@£&#&&, sorry, she has a funny surname, has eventually after years of riding Hyperion, her heavily modified GS1100, moved over to a sponsered 790.

Reminds me of that movie "Hackers" where the two main characters get together - Crash&Burn :imaposer:

That's how it'll end with me for sure, on that bike.


:eek7: :eek7:

Ri, daai bike is soos n R1......hulle lyk maar so vriendelik. :deal:

Ek moet sÍ, die feit dat hierdie een nie oogseer oranje is nie help om haar vriendeliker te laat lyk as 'n R1. En tensy ek 'n bus vol mense T-bone, sal sy ook minder skade aanrig as 'n R1.

LOL in my wildest dreams! They'd better sponsor the riding courses as well, or that KTM790 will soon be scrap metal, with my history of falling :ricky:
