The Boss is gifted. Truck bed liner from auto zone. Very easy to touch-up after my crashes. I got tired of looking at my beat up silver. Wish I had the black rims.

I think I'd add black rims and maybe gloss black KTM logos in the stock locations..and also paint the windscreen- very stealthy.....yea, what's the paint?

Blue Ridge Parkway trip

Just got back Friday from a trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Dr. The first two pictures were taken at Seneca Rocks in West Virginia. The last was taken on Skyline Dr. Clyde the Vulture was a gift for my daughter. He hitched a ride home on the back of my bike. The KTM ran perfectly. We did almost 1000 miles over 3 days. Not a big Adventure trip or anything like that, but it was a blast. We had a great time. Had some good food and shared a few stories of the road.

There were 2 DL-650 V-Stroms, a Yamaha FZ-1, a H-D Dyna and my KTM 950 Adventure S in our group. A diverse bunch of bikes, but a nice group of friends.

KatieM from Downunder (or are most of you looking up from the bottom?)

Time to stop keeping her all to myself...

Here is my new baby with just 300k's on the clock (180 miles for those that refuse to change)



Her now.... 4000k's on the clock, probably only 1/4 of that on the road. Been up to the top of the Carbon Performance tank covers in mud, dropped about a dozen times, only once real hard and the covers worked well....but she still scrubs up remarkably well. Touratech high front guard conversion, TKC80's



Of course now she's been riden a lot and loosened up, I needed some ribbing (Stomp Grip Pads) for that extra pleasure....really make it easier for me with my tired old knees to cling on for dear life, but will be interesting to see what they age like.



After an altercation with a large branch, I began experimenting with the windscreen, this is what suits me best with the wind cleanly hitting my Arai XD so I get some air, but largely keeping it of the body. No buffetting now between the lower screen and the mirrors I tweaked out a little wider (Used a pipe bender) . Now all I need is a new screen to rework as this has been bent so many times it is all cracked up, hence the black paint.



Found I had no sense of direction when following tracks on my own, so I added a Garmin Quest, using Garmin bike mount and small aluminium (AKA Aluminum) bracket straight to the dash, easy to see and use.
Had problems with right hand going to sleep as I was spending so much time on the pegs, fixed that with 608 bend Renthal fatbars.
Tourateck lock on glovebox. Dropped forks 10mm


What you can't see...
The catalysts just fell out of the mufflers, then the EPC and SAS systems fell off too, the AUS spec never had a canister like US spec, so I did not have to help this fall off.
Then someone came along and drilled a 16mm hole right through the centre of the mufflers, which makes suprisingly little difference to volume, just a little 'raspier' like Jimmie Barns, but breathes much better.
Lifted the needles a click and put them down again, fixed the lean spot with bigger pilots at first service which made all the difference.
16 tooth on the front, 45 on the rear, still way faster than I need, but lots easier in the tight stuff, a true six speed. It is now a pleasure to drive in traffic and on the highway at typical Aussie freeway speeds.
Made a custom pin for brake lever to actuating rod connection to tighten up the real sloppy pedal.
Got a Gel seat, used it twice to be sure, and then filed it under 'waste of money' the original seat breaks in quite quick if you bounce up and down on it in the dirt for a few hours. Also originally got KTM carbon tank covers with the bike, but it just fell over (honest) a day after I fitted them and the left one collapsed...I do not recomend the KTM ones at all.

Coming via post from the US..
Power pegz, KTM/FMF aluminium mufflers, Scotts triple clamp / damper combo & other assorted bling.

check www.woodyswheelworks.com for some of the trick looking stuff ya can get done,,,you're on the right track ,,,stunning looking bike ya have,,,if ya do more street than dirt,,you may want to consider going to 2.50 x19 front and 4.25 x17 rear,,,same size as all bmw GS wheels,,,hugh tire selection,,,can make tubeless to boot and you can really rock in the canyons,,,,your road handling will improve as well as the braking,,,and it'll lower the bike about 3/4'',,

Now, only you would have looked directly at the wheels to notice this!

Do you dream wheel rims, offsets and spoke nipples at night Woody?

If only we had real bike professionals like you everywhere, especially looking after my bike!

Well spotted that man and a nice tip for detailing

I see that you are in upstate SC . I live in Greenville , SC and also have a 950 (ORANGE ) ,the orange ONES are apparently FASTER , but thet throw harder .My bike is at Neeley racing in Spartanburg to have repaired .Once I get it back we should hook up for a ride ,I have a couple of friends with a XR650 ,KLR650 , 950S and a V-Strom. My arm is currently in an orange cast after I ditched my bike on I-85 after a truck's retread was flung into my bike . :uhhuh
