Quote from the vid.......

"Riding feeds something inside us in a way that nothing else can" , I like  :thumleft:
Don't blame me for the name ....I was bullied into into it by J-Dog.....
"Change your name or ride a KTM"  he said , I changed my name !!!!

Finally watched this last night at my girlfriends place.

Love is the feeling when you like something as much as your motorbike.
