New Toy!

4 Feb

Picked up a new (secondhand) bike the other day:

’09 KTM 690 Duke, it’s a 650cc single so is a bit like riding a really big dirt bike.

As she was a bit of an ugly duckling a few things had to change:

Ugly levers, front windshield from a bus, Mirrors that looked like antlers and a very over weight rear end:

I took a bit of a gamble and bought a $70 pair of chinese CNC Billet mirrors from eBay, turned out pretty good. They are an exact copy of some $250 Italian ones, apart from needing a few bolts upgraded they fit real nice

The finished product, Crash bobbins, replacement parts and a bit of extra bling fitted:

A lot of fun to ride, a little loud, but at least people will hear me if they don’t see me. Weather in Sydney has been rubbish so I’m hanging out to to get some decent riding in.
