Details:
1997 620 Adventure: stock except for KTM factory Dellorto PHM40 (Quicksilver was already in a box when purchased).
1999 640 Adventure: Emig Lowering Links (I'm taking them off), SPES muffler (I'm taking it off) and a Dellorto PHM40 (don't even know what it originally came with).

At the risk of degenerating this thread, Creeper: doth either of my Adventures suck?
Very nice Greg. I remember your '97 from Ouray and she's still purdy. Your '99 aint half bad either. Oh, shit! Just don't tell AusieRob that I like the color.

Ahhh..yes, I stumbled onto references to the infamous AusieRob opinions but never tracked down the original. Share? Link?

The 99 Adventure is still only a substitute for the bike I really want but can't afford:



Yeah, I know she was at Ouray. They had to pour cold water on me to get me off of it. DAMN that is a cool bike.

I found one of the AusieRob posts. It all started during the LC4 techdayz at Vrago's place. Passmore had his Rino bike and Creeper was giving him shit. AusieRob had is Adventure (the only one with dem colors) and he was singled out.

Here is some of the banter:

Okay, makes sense now. I saw my first blue/orange outside the hotel in Barstow on the LAB2V two years ago Not only was I riding the ATK that weekend (being unfaithful to the 97 Adv) but I was lusting for 'another bike' in the parking lot at a hotel. I was so ashamed

I've already posted some pics in other threads, but here are a few showing the most obvious mods to the bike: the exhaust and the racks.

Remus Twin Titanium full exhaust:





There is also a custom rack, but it doesn't appear strong enough for hard bags; probably good at keeping soft bags off the pipes:

It sure looks nice on the bike don't it? Follows the lines very well.

I believe he said it was custom made... who ever did it certainly had an artistic bent and did a nice job of it.

No idea! The PO told me that they were custom built for the original owner. Due to the lack of cross-bracing across the back, I don't think they would be of any use for hard cases. However, due to this bikes exhaust, they would be required to keep soft bags from melting on the right side...
