Women on 790s?

Are there any other women in here? Or have you spotted any on 790s? I know quite a few female bikers but none who ride KTMs. Not gonna lie, it’s one of the reasons I was drawn to the bike as I like to be different!

I've seen quite a few 790's out and about, but no female riders as far as I could tell.

Observation is the greatest source of wisdom.

I only know of one when I put mine 790 on order at W Mounter I spotted a black A2 790 had a tag on Sold to Kate later a friend of mine was down at Fowlers motorcycles Bristol looking at bikes and buying a BMW, he was speaking to me about his purchase and said guess what the girl who served us has a 790 from W Mounter. Played on that for a bit
Was it Black ? yes
was her name Kate yep how do you know that
new battery's in my crystal ball
as far as I could gather she did not want a BMW 310

Seen plenty on some of the 790 Facebook groups but none on the roads as yet.

We need to drag more people who own 790Ds to here! Both men and women!

Unfortunately in the US I haven't even seen one other person on a 790 at least in MD/DC area. I know though 8 bikes were sold in my area though! They must all be rubbing them with a diaper in the garage instead of riding them!

Keep the rubber side down!

I ride because my wife says it keeps me young and is better than if I get a girlfriend...

Easiest way to get the message out, is when one posts on any of the three Facebook pages, (or Instagram), or Youtube, just end it with: 790DukeForum.com

The more of a resource, (and fun place), this becomes, people will flow in en mass.

Ditto, have not seen another 790 in east Tennesse or west North Carolina but I have not sat and watched bikes go by all day on the Dragon.
