    Stopped in to inquire about availability in the Spring.
    Just my luck a guy just backed out of this bike.
    Dammit, I wasn’t ready to buy but.........
    It’s got my name on it now!
    How about a list of KTM must haves..........?

    Heres mine on a trip to Morocco last November .This was on the MS6 ? close to Sidi Ali where we camped heavy bike off road though for a me with very little off road riding
    I dont really like the look of the crass barrs but they came in very handy off road .

    The bike has lots of places for mud to hide. It was a lot of work cleaning it up after that ride.

    Fast forestry roads, loose single track and likely some hills.
    I’m thinking protection is my #1 concern.
    I see a lot of great looking components but the majority are UK based. Hopefully I can find some NA suppliers....

    Looking west from Squaw Butte, north of Emmett. Stopped below the top before the mud got too difficult.
