Out Yesterday on the KTM

So finally after getting the leaks and so on sorted I got a decent ride out on the supermoto. Around the beautifully scenic, twisty and hilly Torr Road on the Antrim coast :biggrin:

Sometimes we ride on the right when we suspect there will be someone coming round the corner on the wrong side of the road. It's much safer that way! :lol:


Cheers, it is a cracking road for the SM. Like commentators at Laguna Seca like to remind you every five minutes about the "Corkscrew," the camera doesn't do it justice.

It certainly is, and also quite deceptive. Sometimes in that video you'd imagine with the low down growl coming from it that I'm only doing about 30mph, but the odd glimpse at the speedo reveals the true speed to be about twice that!

KTM

I must admit, I'm slowly falling in love with the KTM's! When I get my DAS done in the spring, I'm already considering a 690 Duke.

Definitely not a super bike type of road

Bloody hell very narrow roads there ! This where great bikes like the Ktm are the ones to buy enough fun at half the speed and that's where I wanna go .

Cheers :smile


There are a few good supermoto roads near me but I have to say this one is damn near perfect! The scenery definitely plays a part in that too :biggrin:

And yeah that's a fair assessment, it's not particularly a superbike type of road.
