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:



 If he had a BM he wouldnt need it... just a number on his cell phone  :biggrin:

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:)

Maybe you should be asking the chap with his VFR 800, whom tried to get away from a 1200 and 1150 in afternoon traffic .......funny seeing him doing double takes n his mirror when he realizes that the Beemers is still on his ass ..... whilst he thought he was styling and long gone  >:D

ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)
