you know why I left KTM out tesseract?

up untill this year there was only ONE street legal model in North America.

Only the Adventure 950 was out. I think this year there's an 'S' model of the same bike.

eeegghhh Carbon Fiber, fiberglass, plastic, etc..Fairings to me look gaudy and completely unneccesary. Clearly they serve an aerodynamic purpose, but I don't plan on going 200mph on the I-10 anytime soon...

 

I love the look of a stripped down sport bike. (only works on Ducati)..

Use of those materials is more about keeping the weight down as opposed to aerodynamics.

That retro-Ducatti is sick!

 

Good luck on that testing and shit.

 

And if you know anyone who lives in Hong Kong right now, I'd say get them to ship you over a helmet. I hear they got fantastic Arai helmets for way cheaper than you can get here.

My buddy in Taiwan gets them for way cheaper. And my other two buddies who have visited said Taiwanese buddy have made a point to hit HK for helmets. I'm not sure what the price is, but it might be worth checking out.
