I rode a KTM 950 for the last several years and it was really great if I had a riding partner. I found it pretty heavy for me to pick up when riding solo, so I bought a Yam wrr 250 to ride the CDR last year. I put the big tank, flyscreen, power outlets and luggage system on it for the trip. The bike was great. Probably as comfy as my 950. Rides the superslabs well too. I left it in Phoenix to visit.

I was going to buy a new 990 to replace my 950, but my son suggested I get the new softer version of the KTM690R. Brilliant! About the same weight as my Yam, but with almost 70hp!

So far so good, but I sort of miss a smooth running twin for the highway.
