Today was a good day! It actually started off at CalMoto in Mountain View for the husband. He’s getting a new exhaust but unfortunately they didn’t have the indicators he wanted so he had to order them and will have to go back. He’s getting a bike upgrade today, and I’m finally getting my bike!Â But we had to drive to Livermore to pick it up. Oh well, it was a lovely day.
KTMs are orange. Seriously. It’s a good thing I’m not really afraid of orange, and honestly it’s growing on me. Plus, they pair it with black a lot. When you walk into the dealership you see a sea of orange up front. To the left is all the Triumphs and in another room are the BMWs. I was looking around for my bike, a brand new KTM Duke 690, Â and found her tucked in at the front window. She’s been getting a lot of attention. The dealership only got this 1 black and they will be getting a white one in June. Â The box on the handlebars is the Roadlok system. It’s pretty awesome. For this model I had to order directly from the dealership so they slipped it on for me. Not that it’s hard. It’s 2 bolts.
Oh, so cute! We trailered her home since I really need to tool around the neighbourhood a few miles before I take on a few major highways and a bridge. A very Â windy bridge. I also happen to have panic attacks on bikes, or my last one so I want to take it a bit slow. It’s all mental but I think this bike is really going to be fun and worth the mental break in period. It’s light, easy to maneuver and can keep up easily in traffic.
