    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.

    Luckily my addiction is being a tightwad, coupon clipper, it helps cancel out the urge to splurge!
