Took an howa to set up my house and bed and wash/rinse Kate. She just wants to be alone while her hair dries. I toller I'd be in the bar. I'll throw chain lube on later. Good ride so far. She is much better on oil consumption than Husky was. I've only added 100mL since 1st service at 3,700 miles ago. Chain looks good and counter shaft seal still great. Thanks Grant! Tire wear is nominal and I've been riding 90% pavement. The fact that this is a rather powerful 360 Lb dirt bike, it handles the road well in demanding situations. I like the simplicity and agility of this machine. I could do without the wooden seat. This bike is for only a few types of riders. I take this bike to far away great places only few know about. My ride style and physique dictate what kind of bike I can ride. A light weight one. For me, the annual improvements KTM incorporates on the 690 are great. 'ceppin the seat.
