    That’s not really a state though... it’s just an exit off 95 where we Mainiacs go to buy liquor and smokes.

    Ha, what a bargain.. Finland, price they told me was 22k€ + tax ~27,5k€ (AUS $45k). 790 R cost 18,5k€ with tax (AUS $30k).
    Not 100% sure if price has changed since then - didn't ask :waysad

    Yeah, most of my family is around there now. Love it back there. Don’t know if I’ll ever make it back, but if I do it’ll probably be around Nashua or Portsmouth with family.

    All this talk of a 490 Adv and possible 490 twin Enduro R.... 890..... I don’t know, might be getting cold feet with the Rally. There’s lots going on in R&D department and this 790 might be short lived. IDK.

    Start putting the bug in your buddy's ear, then have him take over the order and buy out your deposit. But once he gets it, then start trying to upsell him towards the 2021 890 with an upgraded WP Pro. Next, offer to take that 'Oh, so 2020 Rally', off his hands for a tidy discount. :)

    The line is already looooong if I don’t grab it. We’ll see.

    Aw, c'mon. You know we are going to transfer our deposits to the new KTM 890 Super Enduro and start the waiting process all over again.

    KTM got so many different bikes, and configurations coming out, it's going to be hard to decide on which ones you want, but the true test is where you put your money!

    The 890 SM would be cool... but truth be told, I’d rather grab up a late model 990 SM-R for less than half the price of a new 890 and have just as much or more fun with a title in my hand.

    Talked to my dealer today: They are getting one rally, for the showroom, and there are no takers yet for it.

    Adventure Rally is 20K CAD (here in Canuckistan). My understanding is these are yet to hit our shores (or event exist?) :jjen
    I have a friend who ordered one, and was told March as a possibility...
