That was my Duke!

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Sit­ting on Dou­glas prom en­joy­ing my weekly up­date on the world of two wheels, I had to raise a smile at Phil West’s test on the KTM 390 Duke – be­cause ex­actly a year ear­lier I’d bought the R&G tank pro­tec­tor he was talk­ing about and fit­ted to the bike in the test. The only rea­son I sold it to Vin­nie at Wheels was to buy a 690 Duke R. The 390 was just too small for my wife and me. We bought it to carry on the back of our mo­torhome due to its light weight, the 690 is slightly heav­ier but much bet­ter suited to our needs. Steve Smith, email
