Just a quick update fellas, bought myself a ktm 400exc, it's beautiful. Took it out yesterday for a run round on some local and easy lanes, I never stopped grinning. :D
Can't wait to get out and about on some propper lanes. Massive thanks for everyone's advice, very much appreciated.


Good man :D
While being careful of the lack of contact patch on knobblies, they are great fun on open back roads as well.
Enough tourque so you don't have to rev the nuts off them but easily controllable so it won't take off with you hanging on for dear life.
Lovely bikes.
