Its the bike I originally wanted. Had been emailing the guy for a month with no response. He just emailed me back last night. Apparently his ISP was having issues so he hadn't been getting the emails. When they fixed it he got flooded with the email. He noticed how many times I had tried so he got back to me.

No mods to make it off road and cheap!

ads down - did you get it? there are a few scammers out there... hope yours was the real deal, now you just need an adventure model and you will have one of every 640 LC4 - but you will have to get new plastics for the SM - that red/black scheme never did it for me... sorry james but neither does the grey.

going custom or what? I loved Chris J's 990 in Army matte green - a bit OTT maybe but was interesting it was a 2x2 afterall so why not stand out. I painted my car with rocker guard - looks really good (at least I think so!) and wears like iron and it sticks to any surface.

The classic KTM blue always looks good.

I'm thinking of going with a 990AdvR inspired look, and maybe changing the rear fender and tail light too...

Nothing wrong with the way it looks right now, imho.



It's usually covered in dirt anyway, isn't it?
