That was me. I saw you coming. And, said to myself, "here comes a KTM!". (Those KTM headlights give them away every time.) Cool bike.

Thanks.

Haha thats awesome. Not only that your on here and noticed this so soon but that you even remembered my bike as I was passing by! I was even thinking about waving but didn't want to look stupid as you'd probably wonder "whotf is this guy?!"

Thanks!

Your car looks really sick. Which wheels you have on there? or are they powdercoated stockers?

All my details are here: http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=400322

I always pay attention to bikes. I've been riding for years. And, I'm always very aware of bikes around me. Anyway, I've always liked KTMs. I almost got a 990 Super Duke at one point, but went with a K1200S BMW instead ...go figure!

excellent! thank you. i will definitely look into that.

and I was actually seriously considering a BMW G650X before the KTM until I was able to work out a better deal with the 690SMC. Coming from a 4 cylinder, this single is a lot more fun imho with the lighter weight and all low end torque.

Just spotted a silver 128i, might be an M-Sport, headed north on I-95 in Warwick.

We had a good sized gathering for Cars-and-Coffee in Wakefield, RI last Saturday. The weather report said rain so I took the 128i instead of the 3.0CS. The weather was, of course, very nice and there was another RI 3.0CS there. Oh well. There was a silver '08 128i coupe there. The owner was a great 1-series promoter and even took some non-believers for rides. I think that he made a few new converts. I was surprised at the amount of interest in my 128i, so I did the sales/promotion thing too. The turnout was good enough that it will probably be scheduled again for next month.

Spotted a pretty bad-assed, blacked out 135i, black wheels and lowered on 95 South somewhere just south of TF Green. It was about 3pm. Cool car.

Yeah! That's the car.

I was traveling northbound, after picking by daughter and her gear from her sophomore year of college. You were looking good!

Spotted a blacked out 1-series on Middle road in EG and about an hour later on Division. Probably JBW.

We were on our way to China Buffet. You should have stopped by.

Well, look who was spotted once again. It could be either you drive around full-time, actually looking to be spotted, or the fact that the state you live in is slightly larger than my garage.
