Buying advice

Hi there all, after riding my XT660Z Tenere in the UK National rally over the weekend I have decided it is time to let her go and to change to something with a little more legs, and a little less vibration.

I would like to know before I embark on a search of dealerships across the country what to look out for if I were to buy a 990 Adventure R on approx a 2011 plate?

Any advice is welcomed and appreciated.

It was 100*'s out and nice to find some shade!

That is one good looking bike you have there! I really like the color! You need to post more photos!

That is AWESOME! I dig the 690 Rally fairing setup. I would definitely be interested on how you pieced that together.

I've not seen such a clean 950 in ages... it looks like it just rolled out of the showroom!

... Go get it dirty!!
