    Greetings M109r'ers
    Been lurking here for 2 months now and finally got my 109 last week.
    Its 2014 model with 14500kms and a some nice accessories.
    I have had bikes most of my life
    MX bikes as a kid, Road bikes as an older kid
    Z1000ST Kawa at age 19
    Adventure bikes for the last 10 years.
    Sold my KTM 1190 just over a year ago and was ready for something different
    Didn't like the Harley thing as the whole "Life Style" thing has made it seem rather lame (Sorry Harley fans) but I didn't see myself buying Harley underwear and socks and tea cups and sunglasses and matching washer dryers etc.
    Initially looked at the Rocket III but the "somewhere in the middle" look of the 109 sold me straight away!
    Its like a Cruiser had sex with a Sports bike and birthed a monster.
    550 kilos in the last 3 days and I'm loving it. Luckily where I am in South Africa (Eastern Cape) we have some great winters days (if you can call 22Deg C winter) So lots of riding coming up still!
    Oh yea best part is when I showed the Girlfriend the pics she liked the 109 so much she offered to go halvies on it BARGAIN!!!!
    Some great info on this site and hope to be an active member!

    Nice bike-congrats on the purchase! And welcome from Idaho. Are there many 109s in South Africa? Or KTMs for that matter-I have a 1290 SAR? To me-the Harley "lifestyle" comment is funny-I just assumed that was only really a thing in the states.

    There are quite a lot of 109s in SA, down on the east coast where I am not so many but in the city's they are popular.
    South Africa is a very Bikeable place, we have loads of roads and great weather. Also some of the very best adventure riding in the world.
    Loads of KTMs and even more BMW GS's

    I think the Hardly AbleSon thing has spread world wide. Often used to come up behind a gaggle of them on a sunday ride and they would block intersections for their fellows and point at small pot holes and patches of sand one by one so they all could avoid it. I would ride right behind and bounce each and every pothole or sand patch that was pointed at and wave them thanks from my KTM.
