Nice bike! Looks like a pretty fair deal.

I am now on a serious hunt for 990 Adventure or maybe a 950 Super Enduro. Mainly I am looking for something with low mileage. I am located in CA on the south end of the San Francisco bay.

Looking at an '07 990 Adv with 24k, OE side bags and few other extras. Bike is located 90min away from me. Owner asking $7800 which is reasonable but the mileage is somewhat higher than I'd like. How long does the LC8 motor typically last?

Another one is '05 950 Adv with only 9k miles with an asking price of $7500 but will take $7000 down side is that it's in LA which is 6hrs drive away from me. That's a long way to go to take a look.

Just keep looking there are great deals out there. I bought a 2008 w/ 4000 miles on it recently for 8k. There are several for sale on a regular basis between Reno and SF. Found mine consigned at a KTM dealer in Elk Grove. Internet searched for about a month. Was just about to pull the trigger on one in Seattle when it came up.
