Bummer that you lost money, but at least it's gone. I love the look of a lot of KTM motorcycles, but from what I've heard regarding maintenance I would never own one. Plenty of other bikes to choose from that are super reliable.

There's lots of good bikes out with all manner of ergonomics to fit whatever ailment you have. Time to go test riding?
