Having just sold the Uly, I was down at my local Beemer shop all ready to plunk down $9900 for a barebones, '09 F650GS (twin) that only has ABS and heated grips. I had mentioned I was looking for a bike to ride to Alaska next summer. The salesman said that he had just taken something in on trade for a F800GS that I might be interested in. The "something" was a fairly clean 2007 KTM LC4 Adventure with aluminum panniers, Scott Steering Damper, GPS mount with dedicated power cord, Kaoko throttle lock, KTM deluxe tool kit, spare chain, spare sprockets, and some other KTM-specific tools. 1500 miles. $6400. Damn, I just spent the better part of a month agonizing between the V-strom, Versys, F650GS (single) and F-650GS (twin). Now, I'm tempted beyond distraction with this out-of-production, fully-farkled, paint shaker and poster child of Adventure Riding. My head is telling me almost all of the 9,500 miles is paved and due to time constraints, we're in for several 750+ slab days. My wallet is saying save yourself at least $5K (once the Beemer is farkled) and get the Katoom. Of course, as soon as I head off to Alaska on the LC4, KTM will unveil the new, vibration-free, fuel-injected, 55+ mpg, 60+ HP, KTM 700 Adventure with the 33-inch seat height. AAAAGH!
