    Good purchase.. the TSB's are mild and not all the vins required the updates. You got a great bike with a tough disposition. Ride it, don't baby it, it will treat you well.. Just don't get excited with the rattle can noise while she runs compared to its refined siblings.

    I just picked up a white one too, I don't think shes too photogenic at the moment. I'm trying to add a bit of colour to her with decals you know to take out the sickly look she has.

    Here is my new to me '04 950 Adventure :clap
    There is only one word to describe riding this bike AWESOME!!!

    I have only had it for a month now but I got it with only 11500km so there are many more miles left in her.

    Heres a few pics from my ride this weekend to the Vredefort dome area in South Africa.

    Glad to see some more KTMs in SA . I am coming home to SA in a weeks time . I wish I could rent one to go riding in Baviaanskloof and do the Garden Route down to Plett from J-Bay .

    Yeah its made but a small company here in South Africa called Dual Purpose Adventures.

    Its a really good plate if you look carefully there is a dent in it where the rider crash the bike hard and the plate hit a rock. So the plate definitely saved the engine as he rode teh bike home after and he is still using the same plate today. :clap

    A fairly easy gravel road outing last weekend.

    Found a rather large bridge in the forest:

    Hi lubez.
    Are you comming to 2013 Hellas Rally Raid? I see the 2012 Evia Rally Raid sticker.

    Nice transformation. You are making our dream bike. :super

    Wow, Mike, that's awesome... I love to find old structures and see how fragile they seem to be today, despite the fact they successfully accomplished all the tasks they were ment to, lots of years ago...
    (and no computers! just brain, wood, hammers, nails... screws in the better cases)

    Thanks for sharing.
