Thanks for all the welcome notes. Was an 0402, Log-o. Good times for sure. Other bikes in the stable currently include a Triumph Scrambler and a Moto Guzzi Griso. Trying to find room to squeeze one more in....Maybe an Aprilia or Ducati

Will be leaving Round Rock early Sat am in case you want to loose one of them ponies for the day. Loco Coyote is well worth the ride and you'll meet some interesting folks.

Cool man, I was a 6315 Harrier avionics dirty winger before I came over to the Army to fly.

You should go up to Loco with those guys this weekend, for sure good time.

I think I know one other that floats around this forum who's interested in a pumpkin, Charlie Brown. I can envision this little unofficial GS club going orange real quick.

That thing is so gorgeous I had to quote it for the fourth time! Odie's little KLR may not cut it for long; he's gonna need an upgrade too. When's his blue Dakar getting delivered?

Let's ride as soon as you get back!! I wanna see how she fares against the big pig on dirt roads. I had a sampling at Big Bend a couple months ago. The 690 wandered off into the horizon quickly but I was right there with the 990 for the most part. And that was some seriously rough "road". I'd like to compare on the faster dirt roads.

I don't know if everyone is going to the Orange side, but I'd like to ride one long enough to see if I'd like to buy one. Everytime I've call a KTM dealer, they never had one in stock or a demo for me to ride.
