I was thinking.

Ridersite is predominantly Falco oriented.

There can't be many more than 6 or 7 regular contributors.

That's it, that's what I was thinking.

Oh, I was also thinking about thinning the 'herd' a bit and getting a V4 Tuono, then I remembered that I've almost got nothing else to lay out - other than time - on the RSV-R motor transplant which I'm guessing will probably equal the grin factor of the V4. So I probably won't.

Who'd want some dirty stinkwheels anyway . lol ..

Well at least it's taking your mind off that foot

Once I get stuck into my bike you'll be fed up seeing my posts! Be careful what you wish for.

One's own Falco is still currently out of action, the RC8 coming into play when conditions allow.
Here is a snippet from the KTM forum from an owner of an RSV4 and an RC8R, he said things only get interesting on the V4 in the upper rev range, the V twins deliver grunt from the off....
Nuff said Greg !
I love my RC8, like a refined Falco, I also love the Falco for its simply brutal power delivery !
I also thought about a TuonoV4, glad I didn't now.
I think you will be rather pleased RSV lump, although I don't envy you your injury,hopefully you and the project will be mended when we get to the better end of winter.
Spanner on Greg !

Currently trying to decide whether to get a Superduke GT. Took one out at the weekend and twas very nice. Great wind protection and (very smooth) V-twin action.

Had heated seats too...

KTM are certainly making significant inroads into just about every area of the bike market. At least 2 members of this forum (myself and fatboy) have some orange in our life and both of us are very happy with our choice.

Heated seats! That must be very tempting for a long-distance commuter like yourself...

If I get the heated seats, the behind will be very bright :)

Can I just mention that there were snow storms between Oxford and London this morning?
I thought I'd better 'cos the poxy weather forecasters didn't think to mention it...

TBH Katie, anything that keeps a rider warm and comfy is a safety plus.
The colder you become slower your reactions are. Grim but true.
As you do all weather hard bastard mega commutes, heated everything makes sense for you.
Doing your mileage you gotta have the right ride !
I will try not to feel too much of a wimp as I jump into the car tomorrow morning.....
No, I am a pussy in the cold

Me too, every morning. That's why I want the heated seats...
