Not a problem. I received one order from them with free shipping in like 6 or 7 business days I think, not bad. But if you needed something fast for some reason, their expedited options are extremely reasonable like $12 for 2 business days, about the same as Amazon if you don't have Prime.

Nope. cause helmets have expiry dates. So shops tend to blow out by the end of the season for next years gear.

At the last Thursday byrne meet two guys had a pair of duke 390's that I was eye fucking pretty hard. Bike was smaller than I was expecting. Can't decided if I like the rc390 or duke 390 more though. Leaning towards duke. Seems like a killer city commute bike

I actually saw a Duke 390 when I was out running today. It's the first one that I have seen in the wild - great looking bike.

If I didn't have a bike and I was shopping for one today I honestly think I'd get the RC390. Forget 600cc bikes, I adore the RC390. I just think I could have so much fun with it.

vexor - pics look great man.

I was actually going to start a GoPro Motorcycle thread. I'v been playing with one over the past few weeks (as ya'll can see on my IG) and it's an incredibly fun little toy that lets you get very, very creative!

I'm rocking an older model and I'm still thoroughly impressed with the quality!

Thanks Sunfighter

Yea the GoPro takes 12 megapixel images (at least the one that I have) and it's pretty good but if I could use my DSLR, I would. I just don't have the confidence to put my dslr on the vacuum mount that I use for the gopro LOL

Oh I totally agree. I actually lost a GoPro a few weeks ago on the hwy (recovered but in pieces). I don't think the trade-off (increased risk) for higher quality DSLR images is worth it... the GoPro does very well. Mine is the original GoPro Hero HD. I think the stills are 4 megapixels but I'm still impressed.

I have a 3+ black edition but it just boringly sits on top of my helmet as a helmet cam. Looks dorky and stuff but I have never bothered to order a huge gopro mount kit off of Amazon. If I did that, I'd have sticky gopro mounts everywhere!

The 390 Duke is a very strong candidate for my next bike. 20 lb heavier than my 125R but more than 3x more HP, yes please.

Not for a couple of years though, gotta buy a house first. I'm also looking at the Honda CB300F, maybe a CB500X or a used Vstrom or KLR 650 but I'd prefer to stay in the under 400cc insurance bracket and the 390 Duke and RC390 seems like the best two bikes in the under 400cc category. We'll see what else is available in the next couple of years.

Same boat my friend. Especially since there is zero discounts on the 390 Duke. $7k+ New after taxes and everything. I'm going to try and find one used when someone gets bored of it and wants a bigger bike. I love smaller displacement bikes. Way more fun to ride out its potential...

I have a litre bike and looking for something more fun in the city with less CC. I'm done with going stupid fast and after riding my friends r3 I enjoy riding that more than my R1

The duke390 is on top of my list

I've ridden a Ducati 1100 Evo, absolutely amazing bike, but I found the bike to be unpractical for city riding. I much prefer the smaller CC bikes for the city. Its just so much more fun to WOT on my 125, super easy to maneuver around town and keeps up and passes traffic with no problems.

Re: KTM Duke 390

When is the Duke 390's anticipated release/sale date? And in terms of pricing, how is it between the 125?
