Maybe he/she doesn't want it anymore, because i wouldn't!!  :pot:

Maybe true. Perhaps he couldnt handle the inferiority complex anymore riding next to all those BMs  :biggrin: :pot:
All that hot useless air coming from those BM's!!

I think the hot air from the BMs is the exhaust. remember, the BMs are running, the KTM is found on the road dead  :biggrin: :imaposer:

You BM okes stand there with your cellphone....BMW-On-Call, while the REAL riders make a plan.....(mostly becuase we HAVE to.... :patch:)
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Yup, they do, some WD member in CT phoned them once, bike was at his house.... >:D
Nowadays the Beemers don't get issued with puncture kits.....ask BMW why....they say BMW-On-Call will repair it for you.... :thumleft:

You all miss the point.  If he waited a bit longer,  we could have helped.  I suspect he was unable to to get the tyre off the bead,  as it's unimaginable that the owner with a fully kitted bike like that won't have patches or a tube.

I only wanted to find out who's stearing-damper I nearly stole :peepwall:

Me neither, 28000km on the 990, had one puncture so far, sorted it next to the road. :thumleft: 8)  Never left me stranded yet.

Had 2 punctures on the gravel,  and sorted it out myself.

Went to Cape Town for business once without my tools and some arsehole(must be a BMW owner) slashed my tyre,  and I was stranded.  Briv had to rescue me.
