KTM 690 Bobber

Love the KTM 690...  if I had the scrilla, I'd build a 690 flattrack racer. But here's something different... and super-cool.

According to Hell For Leather:
Sven Etzelsberger is not your average garage builder. The soft spoken automotive designer works at Fisker Automotive and also has a background in metalworking. Rather than spending $15,000 on a GS, he decided to take that money and build something special: This single-cylinder KTM bobber.

“In my normal work, I typically don’t fabricate anything with my hands,” he said. “I design it. I engineer it. So it was actually nice having a garage project where I create something with my hands and put it into place, where typically, I only design.” Etzelsberger’s “Bob Racer” is crafted from a 2007 KTM 690 Supermoto. “It had to remain rideable, it had to be fast,” he said. “That’s why I decided to go with a KTM. I wanted to build something unique, something that no one had done before. I didn’t want a V-twin. Everyone builds a custom bike with a V-twin. Everyone.”

Scotland Trials

A couple of weeks ago I was up in Scotland with MD Racing Mike and Trials Trickster Al for a bit of trials trail riding.

It was minus 6 ovenight... open ground stayed frozen for the wholes day... but the sun was a shinin!

Getting ready in Al's uber-shed...

A 3 minute drive up the road...

"Welcome to my garden!"

Stop for a snack...

A old Beta was a champ. Since the top-end rebuild she is super-strong and will pull me up anything. Only downside is higher compression now makes kick-starting her a bit more difficult. Small price to pay :-)

A wee dram on top of the world!

There was a bit of snow as we got higher up...

Cleaning the bikes up after...

As always, the 'Socttish Trials' was an awesome trip. Great riding with fantastic guys. Thanks Mike and Al!
