    I'm glad I'm not the only one that buys fugly bargain-basement apparel. Leaves more money for petrol and tyres!

    Mine has been retired for a long time. You can kind of see it in this pic.

    Love this! :lol3
    There's something special about being resourceful and making a plan, or making something that's a little tired keep going for longer with a bit of tinkering instead of just going out and spending the big bux. :thumbs

    I walked into the KTM dealer in 1998 with a 2”x2” photo from a magazine and said “I want to order one of these”. The photo is my 1999 640 Adventure R getting ready to descend into the Copper Canyons in Mexico back in the day.

    Headed to Nova Scotia for work. Waiting to load the ferry after 3 cancelled ferries in a row. Looking for better weather.

    Slidin' around in the deep dark depths of the Whirinaki forest with @kiwipeet on his ADV. I was riding his bro's super tidy 640E (thanks Gary!)

    Installed new graphics on the bike this morning. Really happy with the way they turned out, bike has the optional rally tank, so was just flat orange...
