My KTM's stablemates don't suck, but they are often dirty (19 & 20)



All the stablemates in the stable on wheels:



Now this thing is so stupid it must live its miserable life in the wife's garage as it's not shop worthy (thus, technically not a stablemate unless she goes with us riding, then yes, it goes in the race trailer and it sucks):

I thought this thread would be fun but now I feel poor. Multiple KTMs , Ducatis, Laverdas, garages full of Porsches? Compared to that crowd I guess my DRZ400s and Stratoliner that share space with my 990 Adv. really suck big time. Not to mention Claude, my 2002 GEO Prism. Whats with all the anti Honda vibe? Sounds like my Harley Davidson friends who all seemed to have Hondas at one time or another and loved them when thats what they rode.

Thread is fun!


Everyone probably has slightly different priorities, resources and at different stages in life.

I slept on the concrete behind a gas station for a short while when I started college while saving up enough to get in a roommate situation. All I had was a motorcycle and a duffle bag full of clothes.

Added this '06 KTM 525 EXC stablemate to my 990Adv approx 6 weeks ago.



Bought in Orange with only 17 hours on the clock and was left sitting in a barn for over two years.

Anyhow, decided to dual sport it for commuting and green laning.

I pulled it apart, checked every last nut, bolt, bearing and washer, gave it some TLC and added a myriad of bits.

You gotta love the HDB billet dash and handguards....works of art!

I suck!

Well guys...I guess I suck...

I had to sell both stablemates (2005 Tiger and 2000 VFR) to fund the 950A...

The only stablemates mine has are lawnmowers and kids bikes...
