Ahhhhhh, Tall Buildings.......

..........things are making sense again - Nice meeting you cats today

Kruz - The Helmet match is spot on dude, nice work and the Duke is sooooooo much more "nimble" without all those reflectors and the way you backed it in WHILE using the turn signal? - WOW

T - Thx for the use of your shit - Get some tools for fucks sake would ya

I had this scene playing in my head as I came into the City from 55

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Actually I was surprised by how much it felt like my Multistrada. Very simular riding position, nice torque from the twin, excellent handling that just loves to "fall in" and a very, how shall I say, lite front end
I did like it a lot.

I'm really happy to see more very cool bikes coming to market that aren't a mid-evil torture rack.

Huh Bro? The KTM is Austrian and the day just kind of "unfolded" for me - No one beat the bike (any worse than I do) and I just thought it well to let those who have never ridden one before give 'er a try

Whenever you want Bro - Double check your piston too - I saw Tony looking confused and threw a ring of some sort over his should back in that pile of crap when no one was looking
