Geez guys, pay attention, the guy's asking advice per the thread topic;  new ADVENTURE bike.

A lot of you mention 1200's :xxbah:

Grant the man an adventure.

Buccaneer, get yourself something in the 650 class, and try some actual ADVENTURE riding.

Not the type where a Toyota Corolla cruises past you.

Then he must get a Suzuki VStrom 650 as he wants tubeliss rims. :deal:

Great choice Chris and he can take R120k for Adventuring too  :ricky: :thumleft:


Is this your first bike? or have you been riding for a while?

The AT is a great bike and forgiving too, if you are new to off-road riding.

Any single is not pillion friendly and none of them will have tubeless rims. Vstrom is a contender.

Had to do a double take on the forum name. Thought it was a very old post resurrected.

Just do the right thing and get a Ktm 990 Adventure. With your budget, you'll get a pristine example and have enough cash left to spend on the awesome rides and adventures that 900 is going to take you on. :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:
