Nothing makes a MX bike go faster than having its rider look back and see the mighty Katoom breathing down its neck, either that or they pull over out of fear in a wtf moment! Sadly, mine only made it to the track once this year.

Cool picture

No, But I guess the extra 40 min to climb in and out of the valley to get our $5 park pass was worth it.







What I don't get is.... There are sell pay booths and signs, but there was no place to get deposit envelope or a place to deposit it, and then why didn't the ranger just have a Box of these in his Jeep so we could pay him???

Government systems amaze me some times, even the ranger at the Entrance Booth was shocked when we told him this.

All in all is was a Great trail ride, and we never saw him again as we enjoyed our "spirited" ride along the White Rim.

This one's for you Geek.

I've been offered a 990ADV S 2007 - How many miles/kms are too many miles/kms...?

Hi everybody.
I'm a KTM 640ADV rider, but I'm bothering you with my questions and I'm not even a member of this thread yet... just imagine the near future...

I have been offered a 990ADV S 2007. The bike is in good health and looks good, for the moment the only issue I have to deal with is it has 58.000Kms/36.000mi.
Based on your vast experience, what would you say about it: they are too many, half the way, or life has just began.... ( of course, we are talking about well maintained bikes, according to KTM specifications)

My 640ADV has 50.000Kms/31.000mi on the clock, it goes just fine and I have a good idea about the lifecycle of the LC4 engine. What about the LC8?

What current owner tells me is:
-- no problem so far but not serviced: suspensions, clutch, water pump, wheels bearings
-- serviced: whole clutch master cylinder (replaced)

Is there some kind of maintainance records of the failures and non std services you all have been experiencing/doing?

Thanks to your help, I hope I will be able to know if the price is ok, and if it is, been a brand new proud 990 rider, what to expect from now on.
Thanks in advance,
Cheers!
