Jebus Skinner, I'm surprized you hesitated with a deposit, I knew the 990 Baja was hot, fer fucksakes their in almost every moto mag this winter, KTM themselves said they could not meet the demand for 2013.

I would seek 2wheels and Smudges contacts out west a little, if you really want that bike, I'd be on the phone right now with a credit card in my hand, good luck dude.

You keep saying you're going to ride and then backing out? Maybe you should sell those bikes, or quit spending so much time on the internet.

I just got back from skiing and I'm gonna ride this afternoon. I'd invite you, but I know you don't really want to ride.

Big Bike Training

I posted this in the regional site:

Does anyone know of an Adventure Training Class or instructor in or around northern Illinois? I recently bought a GSA and want to put it to good use. To do so I would do well to get some training.

If there are no classes within a reasonable distance, maybe there is an instructor out there who would like to give private lessons?

Someone said that the CDSR would be the place to post this. I will do that, but I see that some CDSR members are posting here, too. Any thoughts?

I don't get the "only 2 bikes a year". Sounds like the 990 is discontinued because of the new 1190 Adventure. You would think KTM would give a dealer as many 990's as they wanted to clear the warehouse out.

Comparable. A tint bit better. I've always been happy with team 2. A little out of the way. But mission accomplished
