Need help finding a new "used" KTM!!!

Hey everyone, I could really use some help. I have been trying to piece my KTM 690 back together for months and was really hoping that I could, but I think she's done! I had my GS 1200 and my 690 on my trailer and was on my way from Naples to Ocala to sell the GS. I was going to go ahead and stay with a friend and ride my 690 while I was there. Welp, I almost made it to 75 and one of our "AWESOME" snow birds rear ended the trailer at over 50 mph! Instantly totaled the GS, and threw the 690 about 200 feet into the ditch. Insurance totaled both bikes, but I bought the 690 back thinking that I could save her. After months of working on her, the frame is just to bent, and she's done. So I need some help locating a new "used" KTM. I am looking for a 525, 530, street legal. You guys know the deal, I need a enduro with balls! If any of you happen across one that looks good in the Florida area I would appreciate a heads up. I'm leaving for my first vacation in 13 years and will be ready to go buy on the 6th of January. Hoping to keep it under 5k, and will drive anywhere in the state to get it. If anyone can help a brother out I would much appreciate it.

I know of several 530s in the panhandle for around 5k if you are interested.

There are several 530 over here but I haven't tracked down owners yet.

Im assuming you've looked on ADV where you will get the best deals and honest folks.

That's a good looking bike Vico, didn't see a price on it though. I really need to find one soon, just can't be without one. Really needs to be under 5k.

You got to PM the guy for pricing and details.
I know of a 2009 530 EXC for around 5K. In good condition and ready to ride as far as I know but cant get in touch with guy... He lives in Ft Walton.

Just go to that post and PM him for price and other info.

I don't have any other info.

Local guys here is Woodsrider and you can PM him also. Still not answering phone which means he is out gone sailing!

Thanks, been checking the site. Checking the normal searches and what have ya. Just hard trying to find the orange koolaide down here, freakin sucks! I don't mind driving if the bike is right, seems like that might be the only way to go. I sent the guy in mobile a message, haven't heard back from him yet, but may be in for a road trip real soon one way or another
