If I was inclined, I would buy the kit. That way you can put all the stock stuff back on when you go to move it.
That is some sound advice.
When i found out we were moving . I was definitely buying a ktm Six days. Sold my ktm Rc390 . No more Gold Coast street racing for me.
Now i am looking at Beta 300 or 430 rr. Just stock with bash plates and hand guards.
My ktm 300 retired with about 400 hrs after 5 years. I am retiring in Bali in 5 years so this bike will have same hours and worth nothing at the End.
Anybody who knows me will testify this new bike will have a harder life than a D graders bike used at Erzberg.
Did not get Nickname Echidna for no reason.

It's almost as if they're all trying to be PM in order to claim lifetime benefits

First time I met Echidna...

NP: "How'd you get the nickname?
Echidna: "Are you Sweeping"
NP: "Yep"
Echidna: "You'll work it out"

About the second/third corner I came around here's Adam arse-up nose-down in the dirt. Same body shape as the cute marsupial. I pissed myself.

I'll admit to stopping halfway-up a rutted hill with Echidna right behind me just to see those little legs go like windmills (and miss the ground by 6")

Who needs enemies with mates like us blokes?

Ha ha . I knew you would have funny story pete. I guess you have earned it when you have picked me up of the ground 100 times.
