Iam sure my wrist will not be in good enough condition to handle the ride back across town with all the traffic lights and pulling the clutch in.

The trailer is an 8x5 and will fit 3 ADV bikes easily, I expect Con will load up as well (although he may not)
and that will leave another spot if anyone wants to trailer it from Marion to Tea Tree Gully

Adrian
Adrian, you & Con can park your cars & trailer at my house, its only 5 minutes from there to the meeting point , I will send you a PM with my address..

I'm kinda debating whether to go new or a young second hand one already a bit farkled. I've seen a couple of interesting ones, but both interstate.

Do Adelaide dealers usually have new and second hand ones in stock? I'm guessing if they did have second hand ones they'd be on bikesales. Anybody know of any good 990 Adv's for sale in SA?
Hi Sounder.

I know Kessners have a second hand 990 for sale, its been there a while too. Its all stock std but looks in good nick. make them an offer.....

cheers Bill..

I had a look at that 6 months ago, it's pretty tidy.
I reckon they'd be ready to deal now but I don't think they had much margin in it.

$12,990.'08 with 41k. Owned from new by ADV inmate Gateshutter.
Always serviced by Aaron @ Kessners on or before due.
I have worked on the bike (Farkling) & it is in top condition.

They traded it for $13K so they are not making a red cent on it.

This is a good buy.

Sounder,

Before you pull the trigger search interstate on bike point etc. You may be able to pick one up already set up. For example, over 2 years ago I sold my 06 990 with:

45 litre safari tanks $1800
emig stab and triple clamps $1200
akros $1800
front sun rim $500+
gobi's and pannier racks $2000+
Camo KTM Bash Plate (the best)
265 lift with 60 front springs $1000+

I think it was high 20s or low 30s in kms for the low, low price of $17K. It was on vendors but that info has probably gone. There may be some out there that are already farkled. If you find one you can get it shipped for around 300-400. So don't limit yourself to SA. I only say this as the 950/990 are an incredibly tough bike. Except for the known issues that I think have gone away with the later models you can't really go wrong.

Gateshutters old bike is probably a good buy as inmates here know its providence, but there may be other bikes out there offerring better value.

If you're in no rush Sounder then you can easily pick & choose.
I waited for approx 3 months until the right bike popped up at the right price.
It came from Newcastle......door to door delivery at $500...good service.
Cheers,
Con.

Greenpat over in Perth had his for sale for $14k. Looked pretty good. But he just withdrew it from sale the day after I contacted him. He's heading overseas for work and is now going to put it in storage.

I'm in no rush. I'll keep looking.

It's a bit of an EP/West Coast month - in Ceduna now after doing a feral camel job out past Nullarbor, and back out here next week doing a series of workshops for sheep cockies.

The DRZ is only being used for stock work at the moment, was going to ride the Mallala RT but we were crutching at home.
