The 'squeeze' on S. Pinion road, just out of Earthquake Valley in Anza Borrego desert. If all goes well, i'll be passing thru there around 9 tomorrow mornin' (3/12).
Whos that riding? Guessing you turned around at the 'drop-off'? (If you climbed the drop-off on the 950, I am VERY impressed.)

That is Tom McBride I stoped before the squezz as neither of us had been down this road I was not even ready to ride this section I might try it now as my bike was somewhat new when we did this ride unfortunatly I won't be back on he bike anytime soon . I'm what my wife refers to as a unopalegic )as opposed to a parapalegic) I just call it a one legged gimp

Where can I order one?

Where can I order one?? Better yet what US dealership is getting this KTM??
My 640 ADV is sold, pending the sale of the 950 S

Anyone? I'll pay to have it shipped from any dealership in the US

This is an issue I might be facing ... I completely dig my 640 & just purchased a bunch of new parts - thing is pristine now!!!

BUT .... the possibility of a ride to Pacuhca, Mexico this summer has me thinging about a bigger-displacement bike for doing LONNNNGGGG back-to-back days.

Besides, the blue would match my Gas Gas & YZ, and the Orange would keep Greg happy

Hmmmm....

yeah, that paint job on the new S is the best so far!

still waiting to crash mine sufficiently to justify the respray!

i believe the new S has the old non-S suspension, and that its seat is EXACTLY the same as the old bikes. in which case it's the '05 model to buy for sure (unless you have very short legs).

I post this picture again to show the ability of the 950's suspension. I ask Dave if he bottomed after this jump. His answer was no. If he jumped this high and landed flat going slow he would bottom but he landed at speed (he was going about 35 when he made this jump). Looking at LC12JT's shot My bet is he did not bottom, even at my weight (280 plus 15/20 LBs for gear)I can jump like this photo without bottoming Now Daves shot is a different story for me
