The ranges of responses suggests to me that you will have to make up your mind. :deal:

As jy nog steeds met die Beemer sit, sal die lewe ook by jou verbyloop. Wees eerlik en moet nou nie n ding wat ping aan n KTM ou gaan gee nie. En vertel hom van die FD. En hoe warm daai ou kak ontwerp enjin jou in onse somermaande maak.

Jy moet luister wat 2SD se - Hy het al duisende km's op beide 'n 1150GS en 1200GS afgele en behoort objektiewe raad te kan gee. ;)

Nee Jaco, jy hoef eintlik maar net 10 km met so n fiets te ry om die effek te voel. Dis n europese ontwerp :xxbah:

I can swop my BMW 2007 GSA (20,000Km) for a KTM 2009 990 Adventure (less then 3000km's on the clock).
I am happy with the GSA, it would purely be a so that I have a new ride.
This would basically be a straight swop. What do you think, is this a good deal?


There is only one person who can answer this question.  You.

See how jags the KTM gets ?!

Now sir, why would you ask such a controversial question. Especially of your unbiased fellow forum members?  >:D

Something must be tugging deep inside you to own a KTM - go and quench your thirst. And when you have found the answer to your own question, come and tell us about it.

ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)
