Time to pull the trigger

During the drive back to town with the BMW in the trailer I thought over my options. I could cut my losses and just get the bike back to North Van some how. Or I knew that there had been a 2007 990S for sale in Bend just 3 hours north of where I was broken down. I had been lurking in Orange Crush since I first found ADVRider.com I had only ended up with the GSPD because I saw it as the poor mans KTM Adventure. It was time to pull the trigger on a KTM. I decided that if the 990 was still available in Bend I would buy it and keep on going to the Baja. Don the tow truck driver was quite helpful. As soon as we were back at the tow yard I got on the computer and fired off a PM to Racinace who had the 990 for sale. There was a lot of action on Ace's bike with other buyers scrambling to get deposits together. I told him I'd take it. The bike was mine. Ace also agreed to come down to Lakeview and get me and my broken down bike the next day. I checked into a hotel and tried to enjoy my little lay over in scenic Lakeview.
