Finally... a KTM exclusive event
« on: June 25, 2007, 07:28:27 am »
Browsing through the Bark SA this weekend, and i came across an ad for an exclusive KTM event.  :o

Open to only 640adv, 950adv, 950se and 990adv.  >:D
Similar style of the BM GS Challenge. Forgot to bring the article to scan in.

So as a BM lifestyler....


... welcome to the party (wish i had a KTM) 
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!

So Jabu69, you doing this event? Since you CANNOT do the GSC, here is something just for you. Go and show Alfie Cox what 220 km/h looks like on dirt. C'mon, please... ;D ;D
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

At least KTM's pricing is better, BMW have lost the plot somewhere.

Well after 3 GSC's BMW realised that it need to keep the ruff raff out...... >:D...dont worry..I'm also a ruff raff... ;D

1st GSC = R700?
2nd GSC = R995
3rd GSC = R1350
4rd GSC = R2500

Not inflation related.....profit related..

Supply and demand at work here.

There is a market for that. Let them do it. Nothing wrong with that.

When I got my bike back in 2005, I didn't know of the riding opportunities around very near to me.

I thought DR and then maybe GS Challenge (which was on the agenda for discussion each time me and riding friends came together) and inbetween some tar brekkie runs. :eek:

I was lucky. Came across the Barksa forum which eventually lead me to this forum and the rest is history.

Maybe some of them are just blissfully unaware of what one can do and with a little money? (In comparion to these types of events)

For some this will be the best they ever experience DS wise. :eek: A "trophy" in the cabinet, dare I say.
