KTM has the orange kool aid.....

so when you buy a KTM you are said to have "drank the orange kool aid"

well I have pretty much almost talked myself into buying a BMW, is there a saying for buying a BMW?

"ate the snitzengruben"

"drank the Jagermeister" (I do have a bottle in the fridge!)

and before you start I checked. no it does not come with a starbucks gift card!
besides I don't drink coffee, and their tea taste like it was brewed in a old jock strap full of mouldy coffee grounds.

Re: KTM has the orange kool aid.....

And how do you know what "and their tea taste like it was brewed in a old jock strap full of mouldy coffee grounds." tastes like?

Congrats on the new ride.. Even if it is a BMW!!

Re: KTM has the orange kool aid.....

I think you are supposed to say "you ate the sauerkraut" but not 100% on that. Which one are you leaning towards?

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

I like that, ya danged kraut-eater! BMW's aren't just rad, they're Motorrad.

Enjoy brother. I've been looking at F800gs pretty hard but will probably hold out for a KTM 790adv instead. I'll say this- nobody I know who's owned a BMW motorcycle doesn't like them.

Re: KTM has the orange kool aid.....

For the BMW you are looking at I would think "eaten some CURRY" might be more appropriate.

Sweet. Heard Voni and hubby are getting one each also. When you do I would like to see a ride report on it.

Re: KTM has the orange kool aid.....

But you don't look happy. Isn't a new bike supposed to help you look happy?

How about 'ate the Beuschel'?

That's his "I'm too sexy for my bike" look.

Or is it his "can't touch this" pose...

Congrats, Leon. Super nice bike.
