comfort for the elderly

Post by haynesjones66 »

i've spent the last few weeks messing about with bits of ali and wood, attempting to get a temporary comfortable seating position for my decrepit-ness but i just cant get it right. the pipes are in the way mostly, but the tank position is also an issue and i'm sitting all wrong. almost at the point of giving up methinks. however, i sat on a ktm superduke 990 today and it's absolutely perfect for me. anybody else tried one? its tiny in comparison to the storm and you sit practically over the bars. not ideal for commuting i guess, but great as a weekend toy. think i need to do a bank job....

A shame you couldn't get your idea to work as you wanted, but at least you gave it a go :thumbup: :thumbup:

Sitting on a KTM Superduke 990 is now going to be a slippery slope :lol: :lol:

I've not jumped on the 990, nor deliberately sat on the 890 smt, for a bloody reason cause the 790 duke has the , "yip, that's it" from the moment I sat on Kennys in NI.
Much as I hate to say it, it's doss.
Don't hassle me
I'll get there at some time
