GO orange Todd!! you won't any problems with this bike like you are having lately with your GS! I like my R more than this white one but you can fill up this one with stickers!!!

if you want to try my r you are more than welcome!!

by the way anyone has a Husky TE310? I'm wondering what you guys think, I'm planning to change my crf250 for a small street legal....

You know, a tall 990-R does seem like the perfect beefy big bike for Big Todd.

I bet that bike would have survived that dip on the LAB2V trail without bending the suspension. Of course if you get it you will then probably go faster and find an even bigger dip to bottom out in.

Give Big Todd a faster, more nimble, better suspended bike and .......

Well I did pick up a bike to chase you and your 250 around on ... nimble and suspension! So far so good, haven't hurt myself yet.

I am seriously talking myself right into this bike ...

KTM have announced a new ‘Baja Edition’ 990 Adventure, which the Austrian company claims is “the most offroad-capable travel enduro in the world.” Built specifically for the North American market only, this limited edition model is, according to KTM, “a tribute to Baja, the land of the famous SCORE/Baja 1000 and also of multiple travel adventure rides and rallies.”
Yes Todd this is the Bike for you to complete the move to the "Dark Side" I offer to take you on a CNF Sith ride.

Oh yah, the one above is good too.

Took the little guy up to CNF today thinking I could get some practice time in under the radar as I'm not ready for you guys just yet. Maple Springs gate was closed and I didn't feel like driving around the moutain in my truck to find another gate.

Anybody interested in a garage queen, slighty adventured GSA?



BigTodd, was it true that these bad boys were carrying a price tag of mid 14K? I was just cruising the websites to see if KTM was bringing back any 950's. I'd like to get something I could take on longer distance instead of my TE610. 14K is kind of a big coin to drop on 'another' bike. Also, I've never tried an orange before.

...didn't know anyone rode a 950 in the Baja...

Check Chapparel in San Berdoo, they had two 950s on sale there, $2K off the $14K price...

The number I was given was estimated at $13.5 ... pricey for a second bke but compared to a new GS Adventure kitted out the same, it's half

If I wasn't commuting every day on a bike ... need one too.

My bad move was for what the GSA cost, could have picked up an SE and a sport tour commuter bike. Couple of years ago I just didn't know any better, thought the GSA would be my perfect "one" bike set up

Aint that the truth.

They're finicky, but I was trying to think of what might work better for BigTodd and came up with zilch, nada, nothin'.
