Just picked up a used '02 Adventure yesterday with a mere 3300 miles on the clock. In my best Austin Powers' voice, "That is a dead-sexy motorcycle, baby!" As my friend Rick Chase used to say, "If my motorcycle had tits, I'd marry it." I'm going to feel a little bad the first time I throw it away on a rock infested jeep trail.

Pictures coming as soon as I figure out where to put them so I can reference them here.

$4800. I was quoted $6100 by a dealer for a used '01, but I kept looking...

All 3300 miles were road miles. It does look new; like I said, I'm going to feel a little bad when I start thrashing the hell out of it.

You might try Happy Trails here in Boise. Great People and I have had two sets of them. Their mounts work well with Ortlieb bags too.

I took my Aprilia Falco out for a spin Saturday and decided there is no where to ride it here in Mountain Home. Pulled out on the interstate that runs through our town and ran it through 3 gears. I was going 119 mph and then loaded it up on the trailer and put it on consignment at the local dealer. As soon as it sells I will be buying a new KTM hopefully.
