Sure you can!

Had a 950Adv and a 990Adv

The 950 was for offroading and desert raids, the 990 for street/road/twists. Traded in the 950 for a 690R and despite the 690 is one nice ride i find myself looking at adds for another 950.

Go get it.

Go for it.

I prefer the 950ADV and 450 EXC combo but it sounds like the 950 and 990 would work out for your use. Also, if you need help finding a 950...here you go

More than 1

A friend of mine asked me "why I had 15 motorcycles"? and I asked him, "why do you have 2 children"? He thought for a monent and said, "good answer".

I have an 09 Adv. that I keep at a friends house in southern Ca, and an 11 Adv. at home in the midwest.

I'm not sure where I should keep my 08 Super Duke or just pick up another one. Decisions, Decisions. It's almost time to go Christmas shopping.

Money is just a means of exchange. Dirty, filthy paper. Trade it for something you can enjoy.

I don't understand this thing of owning more than one KTM.

You should probably leave that SuperDuke at my house in Colorado.

This makes way more sense to me, the others overlap each other 98%.

To the OP, add a 950SE. I have one and I would like to add a 9XX ADV.

No one has suggested the KTM 625 LC4. It's not a dirt bike, it's not an adventure bike, it's somewhere in between. A fantastic dualsport, and very popular with the supermoto crowd. I wish I had one.

True- I bought one from Scott Harden that was one of the Dakar Rider Search bikes. It was a fantastic bike. I sold it to my buddy who blew it up on the highway- he didn't think there would be any problem with holding the throttle wide open in 6th for ~ 10 miles.
