Quasi-Information about buying a bike

Posted by desflurane on December 17, 2010

My friend Paul (who owns a KTM dealership in Carson City as well as Reno’s best dirtbike gear store) did a little checking-in-to the bike purchase program that Eric Gibson encouraged so much. According to Paul’s contact at KTM (didn’t get the name, but Paul assures me that this person knows what is up) they aren’t sure what the offerings will be for this year’s Romaniacs. He indicated that the purchase program may not be offered at all, just rental. He said that this is what they did for the ISDE in Mexico. You rent a new bike for the race, and if you can get it sold at the end you can somehow offset some of the rental cost. Sounds pretty good, but I can’t stick around Romania waiting for a bike to sell… I’m not sure how this will play out.

It seemed like the most reliable information he got was that KTM had not determined exactly what the offering will be. So I’ll stay tuned.


Tell me where I've gone wrong... (please!)
