I’m off pothol­ing…

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

I sim­ply don’t un­der­stand what all the fuss is about. Pot­holes, crack­ing tar­mac, re­pairs, loose gravel, sunken drains, raised man­holes, bro­ken re­pairs, in­ex­pli­ca­ble humps and dips, speed bumps, re­pairs on top of re­pairs .... that’s why I ride a KTM ad­ven­ture bike. It’s the per­fect ve­hi­cle for today’s

roads. It skims across the sur­face with grace and ab­so­lute con­trol pro­vid­ing the rider with a level of com­fort you just don’t get in a car. Who needs to go to Peru when the gov­ern­ment and lo­cal coun­cils pro­vide us so ad­e­quately with an ad­ven­ture bike play­ground? My ad­vice? Spend no money on the roads and it will soon be like ‘Paris-dakar’ for ev­ery ride. Austin Chick, email
