I like that it is a little slower and easier to ride than the KX I came off of. It is as softer suspension, and an easy to ride powerband.

that used to be the case here, but i went to a series that i was always the only one, and all of sudden this year there were 7 gassers!


by far the best thing is the ability to always take the inside line. 90% of the passes i attempt are inside corners

Im faster on it than any bike I've ever ridden. It turns great, stops good and goes like stink. I like the way it sounds. I like the way it looks. Its easy to adjust the suspension and not too sensitive to different courses. I like the way it balances in really tight, rocky almost unrideable terrain. I like knowing it its more capable than i am so i keep trying harder. I like the support and knowledge that is available here on this forum. I like the importer and my local dealer. I like that it has never over heated. I like that every time i ride another bike i can't wait to get back on my Gas Gas. I like beating riders that are faster than me. I like the way the pipe looks. I like that it has a head light.

I really love bringing home trophies to my four year old daughter (she thinks I'm a hero) and i know I've got a better chance to do that on my Gas Gas than any other bike I've ever ridden.

I like it.... a lot.

i have an 8 year old daughter, she gets all the plaques/trophies. the look on her face when i hand her one is priceless. the single awesomest thing about racing.

italics to confirm/duplicate, red because riding with a newer ktm 200 and 300 the other weekend, even in very temperate weather, the 300 splouged multiple times throughout the day, and we weren't IMO running hard, i was constantly a gear down from what I consider a quick pace.

I'm new to this type of riding- but the single biggest thing "I" like is that it makes me FEEL like a better rider...... ( I still suck- but at least I FEEL like I'm faster/ better/ less-sucky)

I initially became interested in them because of the "oddity" but the more I read about them, the more convinced I was that I wanted to try one.....

The quality of factory components is unrivaled IMHO.

Not a fan of the headlight ( I'm scared of the dark! LOL! ) but I thought it was cool there was a ready made "fix" that involved a quick order to GoFasters.

My dealer really sealed the deal for me..... Great guys with excellent Customer service.....

I like my gasser because she is my first and only bike, i feel extremely confident on her, and when i got the bike, i got this website with her! i cant think of any other place where an entire community is so tight knit and willing to share advice and information.

I most like the circlip on the shift shaft. I can;t count the number of times i have had to stop during a ride because one of the KTMs has a loose or missing shifter.
