Just popping in to say "Hi" before I hit the forums. Just received my 790 Duke last week after a long and torturous time deciding which route to take with my next bike. I wanted something that I was happy to put the miles on, that was still very much like a bike, you know, you can see the engine, frame etc without too much plastic, not that I am against plastic, I have had plenty in my time and appreciate the beauty of most bikes. Finally I wanted a bike that could be ridden by me rather than me being ridden by it.. Anyhow KTM hit the spot and I was juggling with Supermoto, Beast or the Scalpel. Anyhow I ended up dropping the other two .........................for now ...........and I am certainly smitten with the Duke. I was lucky to find a bike that had been very tastefully moded by the previous owner so I take no credit for the outcome but I will enjoy the fruits of their labour.
