TO be honest, from the first time I rode it at the track I thought it sounded funny but I told myself theres no way a new bike (especially KTM) could have an issue like this so early so I continued to break it in, and then boom. Up until then though, ... more »

Those look great! I just purchased the SE4 Team Edition from BTO sports, I wear a Medium in Shoei, hoping the sizing is similar. Can't wait to receive it.

I almost purchased the 17 Husky TC 250, to be honest it was a really close choice but I decided to back to the 4 strokes this time. My last bike was the 13 KTM 250SX, and i spoke with my wallet then too! But i'm not biased to 2 or 4 strokes.. Can't wait ... more »

Thanks. With regards to "spoke with my wallet"...ive been around the message boards for many years, the title of the thread was purposely done. The point i was trying to make is that choosing a bike is not about following a trend, whether 4 stroke or ... more »

Does anyone have an update on Anderson's health yet?

Added reply in a thread MXoN - Maggiora, Italy - Bench Racing: The Motos 9/25/2016 6:34 AM

I hope Anderson is okay, and I was rooting for him. At the same time, it was a risky move rolling that jump and celebrating beforehand. It was a chance taken, but not a necessary one. Hope he comes back out for the final moto but more importantly that ... more »
