I did it today

Was tired of going back and forth to the dealer for the flaws of my 1200 MUltistrada (bought used)
and
Did not want to wait to see the reviews and road test of the upcoming 2013/2014 1190 Adventure R
so
I just traded my MTS for a brand new 2012 990 Adventure in White.
I'm gone get my bike in 2 days. But only one or two weeks left to the riding season here :

Each time November is coming I keep asking myself that question: why?!
Small place called Canada.

Congrats! The 1200MTS was in my considerations but I passed on it. I used to be a Ducati mechanic and can only imagine how bad things could go wrong

I was thinking the MS was a cool bike, but the number of recalls and dealer support just pushed me away. Test road a KTM 990 SMT and Adventure and liked the Adv better so That is what I went with. Had some problems but they are the fault of a bad Shoria battery and Ricks voltage regulator. The bike is just so dam fun You should be happy

You can sell the parts in "gear >flea market>parts" forum.

Drop the words "parting out ktm 950" somewhere for search engines. Sorry about your accident, I hope you are ok.
