Another KTM 950 ADV 'S' story

After a long time taking the decision, finally I grab this '05 Adventure S from an old friend.
The whole story in a short is that this friend had a terrible car accident, spent almost a year in the hospital and can't drive bikes anymore. He lives at a ocean front place and the bike was parked in a open garage for more than one year. Rust everywhere, specially in the spokes and some aluminum parts that were corroded. Carbs clogged, no battery, liquids out of spec, etc.
So I pick it a year ago and tried to ride it just to keep the beast alive. Changed fluids, cleaned carbs and stay a month with the bike. It needed more money to be in shape but at that time I couldn't afford to have one more bike at home.
Since then the beast was kept in a closed garage for more than a year, waiting for me.
And now, I'm selling my beloved BMW G6560GS and will buy the KTM.
It's winter time over here. Good for an overhaulin.
