KTM’s famed stunt rider, Rok Bagoros, achieved a major goal last week – the Slovenia reached 100,000 followers on his Facebook page.
“Perhaps five years ago I never dared to even think that my fan base will ever reach this important FB bench mark, but man I was wrong! This number really grew fast in the last three years, and before I even realized I reached the 100K mark,” Bagoros says.
And to celebrate, Bagoros decided to create some art with his KTM 690 Duke…art from a smoky burnout.
“I came up with the idea to show to the world that I’m also a bit of an artist with my KTM Duke and draw a painting,: Bagoros says. “But like always, I didn’t settle with regularity, so my paint was in fact the rubber from my rear ‘super sticky’ Mitas tire. After a short burnout session I made my art …I painted a rubber picture with my name and the number 100,000 on it.”
And now, Bagoros is auctioning off the “The RokON! 100K” picture of the burnout on eBay, with all proceeds going to WINGS FOR LIFE, a non-profit organization that’s mission is to find a cure for spinal-cord injury.
