My '07 990Adv arrived last week!

Bought this awesome machine in Florida and had it shipped back to Colorado. I didn't want to spoil myself with sea-level power...

I should have bought one of these years ago. BEST-BIKE-EVER!



I keep finding the longest possible route wherever I have to go! Ended up on top of Flagstaff Mtn. on my way home from work

Congrats! I bought mine in Atlanta... pulled out & wheelied it for 2 blocks.

...a few days later I was back in Boulder county up here at 5500 feet and found out it wouldn't wheelie without the clutch

Went out and put my new Superplush suspension through It's paces. I was expecting a big improvement but whoa. The bike finally has a balanced feel and works like I want it to.

"a beast the color of winter"

I lurked or years while riding a XR650L, rode with QWIK through through deserts of Idaho, into the Owyhees and decided I too needed a Adventure. I searched long and hard, looked longingly at numerous bikes on ADV, Craigslist, and fleabay. Then at my local dealer I happened across a deal that I could not pass up.
So here it is my 2010.
The pics are rom a ride I just completed this weekend through Central Idaho (419 miles) Its maiden voyage.
As an Avid hunter I just finished reading a book by Douglas Chadwick, called "A Beast the Color of Winter", a study of Mountain goats. During this ride, as I looked at my new KTM, I thought how appropriate that I am riding a "Beast the Color of Winter" into some of Idahos most rugged country.

A beast the color of winter.

I forgot to add, en-route to Idahos back country apparently I was treating the new KTM in a similiar fashion to my sport bikes, and unbeknownst to me, there was a heavy motors officer presence on the one piece of 15 mile or so stretch of asphalt that we covered. WHOOPS! They were extremely courteous, and professional, and let me off with a warning. I found that it would be somewhat amusing if a motors officer sat on mt white KTM.
