Been round the KTM plant in Austria. The big v twins are run up to max revs on a Dyno for a short time, they have been doing this for a few years apparently. Yes I know, I was surprised as well. After this, the oil is dropped and they get a fresh fill!

Hi. I have a really nice branded KTM leather textile touring jacket as brand new in a small youth size, complete with all armor, liner and waterproof membrane. £400 new. I would sell it at £150 + postage, is literally new and unworn. Could send picture and further details if interested? Cheers Nige.

The very high spinning speed of the rear tyre keeps the tread clear of mud and it bites down through the gloop to find firmer ground. Good enduro technique. Of course the rider helps!

Not the same tyre but I’ve had TKC 70s on a trail bike. They also have a big unbroken Centre Band of Tread. Lethal when braking upright in the wet. I’d never buy banded tyres again.
