2012 990adv

Ive just had the pleasure of my very first new bike at almost 50 !!!

Must be a bloody good omen as 2 months after I drop the deposit the girly tells me she is pregnant with our first child...

So two firsts in one year, what a lucky boyo !

Anyway, KTM oz have stopped importing the 990ADV & I was lucky enough to get one of the 2 White ones that they did manage to import.

I reckon it's got to be the best bike I have ever had, just can't see me taking it in the dirt anytime soon. Might have something to do with the $23,000 it cost, or the baby costs coming up or the fact that I'm still in the polishing stage...(ok, I think it's the Polishing stage, I'll get over it)

Or

The fact that I have a fully prepped KTM640ADV sitting next to it...

In the OZ desert I'm sure the 990 is gonna be amazing & I'm sure I will find out but to be honest, the 640 is truly the best ADV bike off the shelf with very little to spend & a fuel range of over 400+Kim's


So I'll count myself lucky on many fronts, but my advice to any new KTM owners is, just get a new seat ! (Renazco)
