2008 ktm 690

Here I am picking up my "new" 2008 KTM 690 in San Francisco and taking it home to Atlanta. In 3 months put almost 4000 miles on the her. Been an expensive therapist but so far she has been very kind to me.

Anybody around Atlanta, I'm always open for a ride unless its kids weekend.

If you break a chain... there is no protection for your slave cylinder. Luckily it was still working. This happened in the middle of the Yukon. Not 1 car, truck or moto passed as I put my new chain on. If it would have taken out my slave cylinder, I would have been fooked.


Your Touratech guard will be worthless afterwords.
