Boring in comparison to all these great pictures, but I snapped a couple riding in some rutted up dirt trails near my work and figured I'd post one... I was hoping to get some mud on the bike and make it a bit more respectable, but it was bone dry out there today...

Picked up the 950 adventure last friday..after thinking about buying one for 3-4years. They are not often for sale either.
Apart from a vibration from the front wheel (looks like it's the tire), I must say that I love everything about this bike. I only wish I had bought one earlier.
The plan is to have a modern touring/ fun bike to offload the Indian chief, it's expensive and time consuming to ride an old indian 14000 kilometers a year.

I just had to try the KTM on some gravel roads, and decided to ride up to our cabin. Hard work.. would have been slightly easier without the big pannier boxes:)
Usually we have to use a 6x6 polaris to get to the cabin.
I got really stuck in the mud, but managed to lift up the bike with some firewood under the tires.
