Most reliable bike I have ever owned. 100,000 miles and no issues. I bought it to be sure to eliminate mechanical problems from my chances in the IBR. In 2005 the only issue was the plastic latch on the rear passenger arm rest broke. In 2007 It saved my ass when I bounced off a moose in the dark in New Brunswick. I rode it home via Alaska (leg 3) and St. Louis (finish) . It was written off when I got back to Vancouver with a bent frame.Not many bikes can do that.
Did I buy another one? No because it didn't give me the ride I wanted, it was simply a 2 wheeled Accord.
Hence the KTM - God's motorcycle
