The place to come if you've been with us for years or it's your first time here. General yakking about anything motorcycle related. Think of it as the internet coffeehouse for the UTMC.

KTM got interesting to me again...

They've dropped the 790 Adventure R and 790 Adventure, the latter of which looks like I can actually ride safely. I've been lusting after a good 'b' bike for those parts of Michigan that just aren't street bike friendly.

I've had a chub for the Duke 390 for ages now -- tho as a city/hooligan bike. Same thing, the highway bike is for, well, the highway. :P

The 390 Duke can do both...

While this machine is criminally delinquent in its amount of Flender™ ... that big cowling in front of the engine. Is it just me, or does that grandiose aesthetic achievement deserve its own name?
If there were absolutely anything to be afraid of, don't you think I would have worn pants?
