Who wants to join me!!!!!!

I'll take you up on that offer Chris,
I will need you to provide me with airfare for my 690R and myself.
One way will be good, cause once I land down under I'll probably want to stay.
I'll be waiting with anticipation. Thanks riding buddy!

LOL you could RTW trip it back on your 690!!!!

My point is, I don't see the point in riding with KLR type riders who's dirt experience is drifting off the tar whilst perving on a female in a soft top!

I need some 690R riding buddies preferably in. The same continent!!!!!!

I saw a new one last week, i have one on order, subframe is tank same as the 2012's. there is a couple of typos in the aus spec site.

The only thing I've heard about as different is there's some air box mod, but no detail, one salesman told me a graphic had changed but I couldn't see any difference.

My 2012 690 radiator just failed after 500km?

Bit annoying and will be a warranty job no doubt!

Have any 2013 690 Enduros arrived at US dealers? I have one ordered and I'm hearing April.

just to update, I went ahead and picked up the 2013. It came into the dealer late last month. I snatched the first one they had.

I have well over 1000 miles on it now, and am lovin it.
