Why am I balking? I guess I've reached that age where you think, damn that's a lot of $$!! Just wish this RFS I had didn't hold up this well .... Lol

  • I feel your pain... and now know the flip side to that.

FYI, I was in the shop the other day and the dealer asked me how I liked the bike. I paused for a second and said $10k it a lot money to spend on a dirt bike.... That being said I sure do like riding that thing.

I understand completely, I had the same exact thoughts, both before and after I bought it, though I've had no regrets so far.  What helps me is to make a pros/cons sheet and include the opportunity costs.  That will help you make the decision without regrets. 

 

I love toys in general and something else I do to control my spending is when I get the itch to buy a new toy, I hold off and sit on the idea for a while.  If I still want it after a month or two then I get it, but often the itch goes away after some time.  So maybe sit on the idea until the 2015's have been in showrooms for a while, and if you still want it at that point then go for it. Especially if you've already got a bike to ride between now and then.

Have a perfectly good 520 that has been an awesome bike. Also thinking maybe it's time to sell it since people want the RFS now

Hold on....   This doesn't make any sense.

 

Everything that I read on the interweb says that KTM's are junk, and will explode.  I call BS that you have an RFS that is holding up well.  There's no way that it's lasted more than 50 hours, not unless you've done the top end 4 times, and the lower end twice, and adjusted the valves as part of  every 2 hour oil change.  B-flippin-S.   ;)

PS:  I KNOW that I am right on this too, because EVERYTHING that you read on the interweb is true.  I read that on the interweb too...

Awesome, what are you waiting for, I would lose my RFS in a heart beat! rode my buddies 500 and it is one the best bikes I ever rode, handles like a dream. Go for it, have fun!
