Yeah, I borrowed that from him...
Wife taking selfie while i'm fixing loosen shift lever bolt!
So are the two of you riding 2-up on the 640?
I've toured 2up on mine.
Me too, but only with the wee lad... who's not getting any smaller!
I just got back from 2000 miles of riding and camping through New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado. Everything from singletrack to a 280 mile stint of highway, and many many miles of forest roads.
It was fun but my nerves/hearing/backside are pretty shredded from windblast, vibes, dropping/picking up the bike, and 100+ temps... not sure how many trips like this are left in me : )
Finally got mine back on the road after the full rebuild last year. Damn I missed this bike! Now I want to go on a little trip somewhere...
Looks like an awesome trip....
I found a low quality pic on my phone of my 2007. If you squint really hard, the pic will be even more blurry AND you can see even less pixels! But I guess that something is better than nothing...
pretend that the the picture was taken in the 70's, and then it won't seem that bad
Here ya go, another old pic in better focus. 2006 was the final production run.
Yay for jumps! Here's one of my old ones:
What you need is some nice cruisy NZ touring. Wanna do a bike swap? (after this covid thing is cleared up of course)
Sweet jump pic! My 640A is currently 1000 miles away at a professional suspension shop getting the whole "kit and caboodle" done to it...including having the tuner actually test riding the bike before, during, and after his work done to it. There probably isn't too many 640's out there with a high speed compression adjustement on their front WP forks. Fairly soon i need to start a thread on what all is being done to it.
Oh, and in the USA, 2007 was the last year for the 640A. We get KTMs about half a season later than the rest of the world, so all your 2006 KTM bikes would reach the US for 2007.
All I was saying was that the last ones were built in 2006, there were plenty that sold for 2007. Good luck with your suspension, mine is stock and I rarely do anything with it.
In the spirit of the thread title, here's some shots from 2009. The 2003 is mine, the orange 2004 belongs to @ADpete. My 2003 burned on NYE 2019, so is no more.
Is that.. a keg?
I was going to ask the same thing. Lol
That’d be some super foamy brew.
October 2019. The day before we chased down an electrical gremlin to a bad coil. It was grounding out and one particular frame bolt would throw a spark every time you hit the starter button. It was uncanny.
Thank the orange gods for Rocky Mountain ATV/MC’s Kentucky warehouse just an hour away.
She's a long way between pubs in the Ozzie outback cobber.
Although if it's fuel, when you see someone on a 640 Adventure carrying extra petrol, you know it's a REALLY long way between gas stations
Kentucky Bourbon is more efficient.
