Quick background on me since I'm kinda new here. I'm a fairly large guy at 6'5" and 215lbs. I've been on motorcycles all my life - or at least since I was 5 years old. Got my first street bike ('79 CX500) when I was 16, started racing motocross when I was 18 on a CR250. Currently, I have a '05 Sabre for long distance rides and a '71 CB350 for in town commuting. Recently, I've got the adventure bug. I want to pound the T.W.A.T. I want to eventually tackle the T.A.T. I want to have a bike I can play with at the local ORV parks. Well, I found this '94 KTM EXC 620. I took it for a ride. My first impression is that it is pretty much awesome. Ridiculous power. Great suspension. Brand new Pirelli tires that will lift the front end coming out of a gravel road corner in 3rd if you're not careful. . Here's my only hesitation. KBB says it's worth $985 trade in or $1400 retail. The guy is asking $1700. I offered $1200, he said he'd take $1400. What would my $1400 get me? Pessimist: An 18 year old bike with faded paint. No electric start and a kick starter on the wrong side that takes a manual to operate. A bike that vibrates significantly between 55 and 85 MPH. Optimist: A badass thumper that you have to work to keep the front wheel down under hard acceleration in the first three gears. An amazing DS at a 3rd the price of anything else on Craigslist.A brand new pair of $300 Pirelli's What oh what should I do? All the bike really needs is for me to learn the black magic that is kick starting a 10.5:1 comp ratio single. It could use a paint job and taller bars. But that's piddly stuff for down the road. I've got about about 20 hrs to decide. I told the guy I'd let him know when he got off work tomorrow. Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated!
