    Can't understand this from KTM.... they present it in the note like a big deal, and is just a couple of Baja decals away from the usual 990... (the accesories doesn't count, they are already available).

    :huh.

    Perhaps their way of hedging their bets in N.A. market in case the 1190 flops:lol3

    Mates, just to say the new battery arrived yesterday, installed it and the bike is up & running!

    Cheers!

    Oh yes, rubRsidedown, that's the idea.
    I'm looking to cross Los Andes to Chile this weekend, in order to get some parts for the bike from KTM Chile.

    I still have to correctly present my bike here. Hope I can do it soon.

    Cheers!

    Hi guys.
    They were quite turbulent days for me here, so just today I can correctly present my bike: a 2007 KTM 990 Adventure, "S" version.

    She's like any other bike, but... she's mine... :D
    So here go some pics which show her as I bought it, except for the screen (was stock translucid) and a non KTM panniers rack which is gone. Sorry they are at home for the moment, not the landscapes she deserves.

    I have changed her look already with a Crispy Designs Decal Kit (will post pics later), and I'm looking for crossing Los Andes to Chile this weekend, for a water pump rebuild (preventive), other checks and also a few farkles at KTM:wink:

    Glad to be "in" :D

    Cheers!

    Thanks, Vicks!
    Don't you think we should research if our bikes are relatives, cousins or something like that... ? :lol3

    Thanks again for your tips by the way.
