Fun to come:)

Sweet ......

Yes, it's going to be down on the power compared to a 950adv. I had a 990adv along with my 640adv ..... and I'll tell you what. What I would take the 640 on over the 990 was drastically different. I wound up selling the 990 because out of all the bikes I had, it really didn't have a place in the herd for me. Yes, true, I've seen others do amazing shit with 950s and 990s, but that's not me.

At 8k, you should be totally fine - and it's most likely just the gasket.

As long as you realize that she's a 640 single, and not a 950 twin, you WILL totally appreciate what she has to offer in the terms of handling different terrains.

That's my .02 cents ........ and congrats on the purchase.
