By the way I spent 3 hours solo in the middle of nowhere on a 2012 KTM 690R this afternoon and did not get nervous once about it breaking down. Mind you I used to do the same...

I'll second this... I got a 1984 Canam 500MX from Ken in 1985 and a Wings for the 690 in 2012. I have never figured him out...looks the same now as then. Should be on "Coast to Coast" or something!...

One other thing to remember (IMHO) is that when it comes to the compromise, the 690 is better off road than the 350 is on the road. Be very honest with yourself when you decide on what the true split...
