Blake, do you have the stock take-off? I broke the tip off mine foolishly trying to start it on a concrete slab in Baja,, must have been the tequila the night before

26' Pilgrim travel trailer. I have no room for it any more. Model year 2007. Sleeps 7, maybe a couple more if kids. Nice sized bathroom, awning, 2 big (and full) propane tanks, refrigerator, one of the 2 batteries is new, microwave, lots of storage, twin/full bunk in the rear, convertible couch, convertible table, private bedroom with queen bed , plus all the usual stuff you would expect in a 26 footer. I would throw in the tow bar stabilizer and brake controller. Located in Albuquerque. I'll get some pics up if anyone is truly interested. Not really interested in trades other than a reasonably fuel efficient commuter sedan.

I think $8k would probably be a great ADV deal, even though there are couple of minor things that need attention.

There's a box of parts I haven't completely looked thru, I'll check, Don.

btw, memory is kicking in a bit....think the KTM also has JD jet kit, and the suitcase w/ manuals is still sitting on my dining room table

I'm sure there's more stuff, I haven't committed it all to memory - but suffice it to say that Don K. took really good care of the bike and did PM before it was needed (wheel bearings, piston/rings)

Blake, S2000 are awesome cars. I will envy you if you get one. I've been eying them for years.

I rode it up at Don's place, and around the block when I got home.

I was going to take it to Four Mile this weekend, and the NV desert next weekend, but that probably won't happen.

Blake, I'm sorry, but welcome to the club! Last I counted, the bike/car count was up around 19 (and I'm still shopping.) Sadly, I have a different sickness than you do . . . I can never bring myself to sell one, just because I want something different.

Keeping all the batteries charged is nearly a full-time job.
