ktm 990 adventure and more thoughts
ahh yeah i forgot to mention i test drove the ktm 990 adv as well. that is one burly testosterone machine, meant for a large person tho.
umm i like your 800 v-strom idea. its nicely packaged into the 800 gs for a mere 13k....:/ that bike isn't without issues tho, the pegs are annoyingly small, it kinda sucks at low speeds, and well, it lacks wind protection.
the guy that let me test drive his 2010 multistrada 1200 shared two absolutely briliant pieces of information 1) the new multistradas are sold as quickly as they put together 2) its the best handling bike he's ever driven (i'd have to agree, its stunning). so with the multi, you get 412 lbs, 150 hp, offroad capability, touring capability, and pretty much the best handling you can buy in a bike that can go 160 mph and accelerate at spontaneous orgasm producing levels. oh yeah, and its like the first ducati that actually might be reliable. HELLO.
why suzuki can't produce a 1000 cc competitor at 10k-11k price tag is just beyond me. you've got the legendary gsxr sportbike engine to start with, you've already got the weestrom abs.
