    I'd like to own a KTM one day......... and ride it from Cape Town to London

    Probably should win Lotto first though.

    Yes please! The Adv S is a cool bike though the 640 is probably better for type of riding I do.

    Right about the lotto though!

    Shit that's excellent buying! That's the sister bike to mine, the only other '05 imported, they were $17,000 new.

    The bloody thing looks like it's never hit the dirt - rolling or otherwise! LOL. The bars appear rolled back, chopper-style, rather than forward like a dirt bike. Must be wheelie city on that thing.

    I wonder about those 'hot grips' grips, too. The ones on my roadie are really hard and unyielding: not exactly what you want on this thumper.
    Cheers,
    Colin

    And don't forget: KTM 990 Adventure 2007.

    Had a look yesterday, they have refined the body panels quite a bit, sharpening them up reminiscent of their SM models.

    Wonder if I can take the demonstrator for a 'test' to the Brass, bring it back dirty with 2,500km extra on the clock?
    Cheers,

    What gives it away?
    The lack of dents in the front rim?

    My dream is evolving further -

    Cape Town to Nordkap (north cape in Finland) via eastern and northern Africa, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland. All on a KTM 640 adventure. Have to make sure in Scandinavia in summer else snow a major issue. Start in Summer in Cape Town, Autumn in Northern Africa (to get past Kilimanjaro before winter), Winter and Spring in Europe (work and earn a little money on the side maybe).

    Righty O back to work.

    Apart from the time issue.. I wonder how hard such a trip would actually be to do, once the bike is purchased and shipped to Africa how much would it cost??? hmmm i'm sure it's easier than I think... i.e. probably don't actually need to win Lotto to do it....perhaps being passionate and driven to do it would be enough..... just dreaming out loud ...dreaming dreaming
