    Thanks! She's an '06 950. About the only thing I'd like to do to it is the S suspension. (This winter). This thing is a BLAST to drive!

    Nice find. I got my first speeding ticket on my 990 yesterday. I was doing 90 on I-75 when the State Trooper pulled in behind me. The KTM 9x0 bikes can be a lot of fun!

    Thanks!

    I passed a new 990 last night at Telegraph and Square Lake... maybe it was you! It was heading south, and were headed north on the 950.

    This weekend CJ Design (Adv: CJRacer) has an open house (free camping). Good chance to checkout all the cool orange bits he makes.

    Kevin, post up about the KTM ride in CO. I would expect you can ride there on one tank with your bike. I may see if that fits my schedule but would tralier out there.

    What a nice ride, thanks Great Lakes Dual Sporters for a great day in the woods.
    The obscure single track sections were the best. (no picture)

    So... Simple. and I traded bikes this week. My 2006 KTM950 goes to Troy and his 2012 KLR comes home with me to Pinckney. We had to wait for release of lein paperwork in the mail and also wait for both of us to take our respective vacations, but the deal is done.

    Easy transaction and Jon seems like a real good guy. Thanks to the MI portion of the forum for the help in putting us together.

    Thanks Larry! This forum is great isn't it!? It was a very pleasant transaction. Looks like my Garmin 276c will be here just in time for the drive up to Mackinac on Saturday! My 60cx won't cut it on the 950 for long distances.

    Take care!

    One more to hate. :)
    I have yet to get a speeding ticket on a bike in my dozen years of street riding. But I think that streak may be coming to an end soon. Brought home this beast on Sunday.

    Going from multi to hyper, or both? I looked at this on my phone before. I see that it's a new multi now. Still very jealous.
