KTM SMT 990
ride to work and lidl on way home

the speed triple has been with dealer since 23rd sept, and looks unlikely i will see again anytime soon :cry:


New gearbox ?

that was original plan, that then changed to a repair, now they don't have the parts in stock
i am not a happy bunny


No wonder.
No courtesy bike ?
I'd be jumping up and down wanting a new gearbox.
Hope it gets resolved soon. 

i was planning on taking it further, and may still, but after i calmed down a bit, thought to myself, am i likely to be riding it at the moment? probably not. so is it worth creating a lot of drama just out of principle?

Whether you are going to ride it or not create the drama just to make a Point - I would

Few weeks ago.
Really not been in the mood over this summer to be honest with all the Coronavirus malarkey. The missus anxiety levels have been bad enough without me adding to it so my free mornings have been on pedal bikes rather than motorbikes.

Today.  Z1000SX. 114 miles.
Started dry but soon started raining. Nothing too heavy.
Maybe squeeze in another couple of runs before it gets too cold. 🤞

Yesterday...left home...Powmill...Crieff...St Filans...Callander...Aberfoyle...Glasgow...home...never even looked at mileage...but the route is a good one...hit the spot as far as needing some R&R.
I love motorcycles. (Even glitch ridden S1000Rs)

February,  bikes been in the garage since then but it'll get a service and clean up before I sell it and that will be it for a while, don't have the time to enjoy it anymore and not sure thats going to change.

Might get something to tinker with in the garage mind you.
Now with 100% more sarcasm.
