Cruised over to Berchtesgaden yesterday again for lunch.
Pretty much the only thing I don’t like about this bike are those mirrors which move all the time and feel kind of cheap. No aftermarket mirrors in KTM powerparts either which seems silly as I guess the superduke could also benefit from some better aluminium mirrors. Trying to find some Rizoma ones to fit. Actually I would rather take them off altogether as I never move over without turning around anyway but I am not sure that’s legal.
It’s been out for years this Duke but every time I stop people just crowd around it and want to know everything about it, horsepower, top speed, weight, price, who makes it (the Duke comes with no KTM logo’s), how does it handle etc etc. Not so easy with my dodgy German and the strong accents around here.
For lunch today i drove 10 mins up above work to this toll road. 3 euro 50 and nobody on it. Absolute bargain as the road is epic.
The 35mmprime lens on the 550D is excellent but I think I need a wider lens for the panorama’s around here.
