...its about 8 (!) years since the most (best?) and beautiful rally bike was built- the 690 RR-

the perfect platform for an 690 adventure-

which sadly NEVER happened....so i really gave up hope in the meantime
:-/

AND if they ever will built a new 690 adventure with big tank, fairing, good luggage concept and drivable for 2 persons like the old 640-

im afraid the f..in europ. laws will show us stupid electr. shit like abs etc. :-/

so im afraid i /we - the thousands of happy 640 adv. owners will have to stick with our old love ... !?

which i could live with....;-))

AND honestly there are many KITs available out there for the 690 enduro- which NEVER 100% would be an solution (for me)- sorry

peterw

..maybe - im sometimes one of the lucky persons to get one of these used dreambikes...
