Sweet, anyone know if its available in Australia? If not, can someone let me know where I can order it online pretty please???
@Chris (Aussie Chris) is that a KTM mate? I remember back in about 99' I had a Honda CR125 (I was only 65kg then) and my mate had a KTM 360 and I asked for a squirt on it. It felt like an un-tamed Bronco trying its best to buck me off! Every gear the thing was trying to put the front wheel through my face!!! I didn't ride that bike again after that, and my mate was slightly mental and watching him race against B grade riders on CR500's, he was always flogging them without a doubt, though always being asked and pushed towards racing formally he was never interested. He would have gone pro in a flash but didn't care for the racing, he just liked going hard and fast!!
I've also ridden a KTM superduke 1000 2009 model and man I love that bike, this year when I'm finally off my P's (I only got my license legally 2 years ago, before that I just ride without one very cautiously but didn't actually own a bike till I got my L's) the superduke is high on my list of bikes I'd like to get. At the moment I ride a VTR 250, it's small but fun and due to my bad back and knees, I struggle with bigger bikes so my first choice when off my P's is a Harley Davidson Custom 883c for its lower centre of gravity and upright riding position. Hers a vid with my GoPro of a small ride I recorded when living in Canberra 2 years ago.
Heres the vid, and another of my mate Paul and I on my little Suzuki LT80 that he edited up for a bit of a laugh at ourselves!!! I scored the bike from the previous owner of the house we bought last year as he just didnt have the room to take it with him where they had bought. It needed a couple of hours work and about $300 later it is good to go!
The quadcopter in the second video is mine, and was flown by me on the day.
