Manny is a closet 2T fan really. They are good though docile low down with the torque of a 4T and higher up just a twist of the wrist from A&E :lol:

Re: New KTM 300 EXC

I hurt my hand unloading the van on Sunday! Quite seriously by all accounts. I wont be working for 6-8 weeks let alone riding a bike.

I broke my little finger and on Monday I went to GP and xray. Tuesday fracture clinic. Wednesday operation (general anesthetic)to pin it. It's goning to take some extensive physio after.

Re: New KTM 300 EXC

No not been there. Have heard if it's wet you engine will blow up and if it's not it's always freezing. I might have given this one a miss. Who knows?
