Fwiw, the 250r seat is on a different planet IMHO. I can spend 3 hrs there and back for a 3 hr dirt run and not have a painful ass. Actually fairly comfortable. Not at all like the ktm stocker.

any 690 enduros you don't need?

Hey guys and girls, I'm looking for a 690 Enduro if you're looking to sell. If you're looking to go bigger, I have a well setup 08 990 ADV
