17,000 miles



950 adv 2005/6 model + all usual extras
"It is used off road" ( not legal in Scotland to go off road, but to hang with the powers that be ! )
I commute to work every day on it ( @ 90'ish mph )
I bike all year round ( and no faults, some glitches as usual )
It does around 140/150 miles per tank before reserve ( running akro,s and no sas or epc )
It munches pirelli Scorpions ( still a pretty decent all round tyre apart from when its on wet grass )
Run standard tooth sprockets ( stealth rear, JT front, with DID chain )
Touring screen ( doesn't buffer any more or less than any other bike i have owned )

iI think that the 950 is the better of the two models ( personal choice ) but I would ride any off them with a big race developed smile on my face so Thank you KTM.

Laugh Home from Afghanistan!

I got home from Afghanistan on Friday and my wife and I took my new 990 for a little spin in the Northern Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Adventure Oncoming

I had to turn around at the snow line and on the way back I had a little difficulty in some slick mud with my Scorpions!

Scorpions and MUD

Luckily I had an extra mirror back in my garage and except for a few bruises it was a free crash.

I love this bike. This is going to be a good summer. It is great to be home!
