The fully loaded bike looks less busy in front of this small town Texas post office/general store/liquor store!


It had to rest on the long rocky climb.


The 990 is in there if you look close.


In front of calcite veins in clay.


Another KTM 9** Adv barreling by.


In front of an old building below a mercury mine.


Complete ride report here.

It is indeed Flanny's "old" exhaust and plate. Bike is a work in progress but coming along nicely.

Love it!

So, its Flannys old bike?

I forget, it looks like the luggage would almost clear the exhaust?

Just his exhaust and skid plate I bought from him, and yes racks and luggage would still fit, although I just sold my panniers in exchange for a Giant Loop bag.
