New owner. KTM 640 adv.

Picking it up Tuesday.

Cann't wait.

It's on a 08 plate. Weight reduced for rallying and come with a road map and other bits and bobs for competing in a Rally.

Here's a few pics.

It's a 07 model on a 08 plate.

Thought orange crush was for all things orange.

Take it I should have posted in the beasts section?

It's an akrapovic exchaust. Sounds amazing. Really loud, may need ear plugs.

It was a competion bike. It will be used for every thing now.

Looks like the OP has cut down the standard low front guard to make them into fork protectors.

Nice bike.

Welcome to the club!

Congrats on the nice bike.

The chain looks to be on the tight side.

It hadn't been used since its last rally last year and I did notice dirt on the chain.

I'm hopefully picking up a Haynes Manual during the week so I'll check the chain tension then as I know nothing about 640's yet.
