Valve adjustment? Or are there other random maintenance items that need to be done to these beasts on a regular basis? I already know the water pump needs to be rebuilt on occasion. And there is some screen thing in addition to the oil filter when doing an oil change.

What else have I gotten myself into?

This could be a good comparison of the brands. Doug and Andrew get new bikes during the Winter of 2013. Who keeps theirs the longest. Who has more/fewer issues. Mileage. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. (I don't often use Latin, but when I do, it's about motorcycles.)

Yup, that is the one. Appears you have had your eyes on it for a while. I am sure SCS thanks me for removing that temptation from you

So, not to start one of those tire discussions but.... what's your favorite KTM Adventure tire? And do you have a place where you can get a bulk discount

Will be interesting to compare. I considered the F800 also. As far as who keeps theirs the longest I have had my KLR since 08 and put 35,000 on it. You are on the third bike that I can recall since then. So I suspect I will have mine longer.

I may have a set of inner tubes for your 800, it'll cost you another ten cents.
