Well after all the sage advice from my fellow riders I pulled the plug on a low mileage, well optioned KTM SDR in the Philly area.  I need to work out the pickup arrangements with the owner this week but it should be in my garage shortly  Bigok  Now, about that thing they call a seat  Crazy

Nice, love my Superduke, the seat on it, is just a wide dirt bike seat, but I have so much fun on it I don't notice

Excellent choice.  Good luck keeping the front wheel on the ground... Good luck clearing the smile off your face after every ride... And good luck staying out of jail.   Bigsmile

Looks like I may have snagged a Corbin for it.  I LOVE the Corbin on my Trophy, this can't be worse right ;^)

Rumor has it that this bike is now in a rental trailer and headed back to Michigan.   Bigok  That thing screams for a fender eliminator.

Oh, yeah.

Safe and Sound back at home.  Insured, Registered and new Plates ordered!  Now I just have to figure out how to quiet it down a bit.  Those pipes are LOUD.

Thanks for everyone's input/opinions my new purchase.

Yes please.  Those FMFs look very good on the bike.  I love the angles, they really put some thought into it.  

Mine had the Akras.

So, I met Scott for dinner tonight at our local eatery.  He rode the KTM over for me to check out.  Oh.  My.  doG.  It's dead sexy and sound good too.  And no, bud, it's really not that loud from behind.  It even accelerates somewhat well.   Lol  His new custom license plate?  LEAN   Bigok
