KTM set to sport


Suspension on the 950 Supermoto now set to recommended sport settings all round. Feels about 10kg lighter and rides much harder. Wonder how long this will last… A week since I drafted this and I’m still happy with it 🙂

Final 640 commute

I left late, so it was fairly quiet outside the M25 – is there a rush hour any more? – and deserted on the way up to Wantage. Another superb ride, with the bike running sweetly and pulling strongly. Looking forward to trying that route on its big brother. I’ll miss […]

KTM 950 Supermoto


Paid the deposit yesterday on my KTM upgrade: a 950 Supermoto, to be collected Friday 🙂 As it’s a London commuter, second hand, two years old. Looks pristine though. I’m having heated grips, hand guards, sliders front and rear, a Scottoiler and a top case. Never thought I’d go for the latter two, but I’m bored of lubricating chains and carrying a rucksack. It comes with the default aftermarket Akrapovic silencers, which are legal. I’ll miss the 640, which has […]
