    Actually, the whole front end is pretty much LC8 parts, including the fender. I looked real hard at that fender initially, 'cause it's several hundred bucks less than the real C/F/K 660 Rally fender, but it will not bolt on to a LC4 fork without mucho modification. So keep singing... but not so fookin' loud, OK?

    This one's from 2002. KTM Racing supermotard exhaust, Rallye pegs and few other stuff...

    Fun bike, both in big cities and where there's no cities at all.

    My only concern is it seems really, really difficult to sell. And unfortunately I want to sell it !

    Very fancy photo there Marotte. Sorry to hear you need to sell your bike. If you don't mind me asking... Why?

    1) because I want to carry a powered paraglider on my bike, and a 1150GS will do it much better

    2) because I won't make much offroad in the near future (see 1 ;-)

    3) because I want something less fun. No, just kidding... Alas, I know I'll miss the KTM...

    It all makes perfect sense to me (powered paraglider :eek1 )
    Sorry to hear your having a tough time selling the bike, you could move it fairly quickly in most parts of the US. Have you listed it in all available KTM enthusiast forums?
    Good luck and try not to fall out of the sky, I hear it hurts.

    Would someone please translate the above sentence so that I can decide if I need to send the Kitten of Death ( :grim ) to Colorado.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the pictures and pretty scenery Victor! :thumb
    Looks like you just washed it and put some shiny schmutz on the tires... watch your ass in the corners, that schmutz has a tendency to creep out onto the tread and put you on you head... fast!

    Oh yea! whats up with that #2 crap? KTM riders are so good and so far out in front we don't need no stinkin' numbers :lol3

    Later,

    Victor, Congrats, perfect bike for your neck of the woods. The 2001 is a great bike, good IMO as well, it's pretty accurate compared to the 2002 up. Any mods planned? Cheers, Mack

    mines not moving anywhere creeper :cry
    i started advertising (only online) in january. i dont think my price is that high, and i've always had OBO. it is a really hard bike to sell. anyway, it goes in cycletrader this week so that might make a big difference - seem to get lots of virtual tire kickers via internet forums :snore

    You are right I pick it up and then I wash it for the picture, the number it was already on it, and I did not have that idea of the creapy and stikun numbers, but I hope that it wash it away pretty soon.

    regarding the mods, I will change the rear tire and put some nubbies on it to put this bike on the dirt.
