Yeh the ready to race boot up is cheesy, but all the manufacturers have there motto on these sorts of dash boots i think. Sometimes it's goading you in to giving it some when really you just want a calm commute to work...

Damn! I'm just jealous. Enjoy mate,

Having new front and patio doors means no bike expense for a while. Also the TV died on Friday so had to fork out for a new one there too  :019:

What's a travel pack? Wings?

Can you get hard luggage for them, like a 3 box kit in ally?

Yes you can get Touratech hard cases as factory, there are mount points on the stock bike, no need for pannier framework unless you go aftermarket with a different brand.

'Wings' is an exhaust company, hand made to order. Think the guy used to work for Akraprovic but specialises in KTM pipes.

Travel pack is some electronic stuff that's locked away by stock. I believe it unlocks the quickshifter, Hill hold control and motor slip regulation.

Snozz has filled you in then. Yeah, the Wings exhaust looks a proper work of art, Ti and Carbon, not cheap, but still 300 less than the Akrapovic, and IMHO looks better

 :005: Timbox has bought a 1290S???
the Tiger is a great bike but the KTM is a step up (imo of course) the motor is 'kin ace, it's what the Tiger should be but with a triple motor,
when you get used to the "dash" you'll realize how good and easy it is to read

Hence my post about asking Mr Bloor to build me a 1300 version of the 765 which never drew a comment although I should have said In a Tiger it will come but hopefully sooner rather than later.

My gut feeling is that Tim and my KTM journey will not be as smooth as our Triumph one but we can only hope and im Cheating because my old 955 is all part of my insurance policy.  :002:
