sounds like a great bike . we don't have it in the states yet :(

No..this is my first adventure bike . I've always had street bikes , I just traded in my '12 cbr600rr for it and lost some money but gained more rideability. I live in south florida which as im starting to find out isn't that good for off road riding ( all the spots you can go are illegal) you have to drive an hour to get to a spot thats legal yet alright.

but i still love my choice, my girlfriend will finally get on the bike without bitching cause the seats comfy. Im trying to work her up to going on a road trip.

The KTM suspension is fantastic, real progressive and some would say a bit stiff.. I like it though, same as tracking your lines and giving a real point and shoot steering characteristic.

Now if we go down the engine path all i can say is, it will make you grin ear to ear and shit yourself at the same time, every time you open the throttle. :)

The little problems people whinge about are nothing compared to what it offers.. (Eg: heat from under the seat) My only problem is I don't have enough time to ride it while I'm working to pay for it.. lol...

Did you have any adv bike before the GSA?
