So my mate Steve has a '05 Adventure S which he loves but has often thought what would he replace it with?

The answer is another '05 Adventure S.......





We went a long way to get this beauty yesterday and were a little apprehensive until we saw it as the guy told us that it had only done 940 miles.

Yes, that's correct 940 miles from when he bought it brand new from the shop


If he hadn't bought it I would have gone straight to the bank and got the money out myself


Steve's existing bike will now be up for sale if anyone is interested.

Thats real cool...but that high front mudguard sucks...a supermoto one would be much better if its needed at all.

Daft question but why get the same bike? he always liked and used his old one for the right things.

I don't understand the logic, why replace something you've already got and are happy with, with the identical thing ?????

If the original owner had spent as much time riding it, as it took him to apply that ghastly tyre paint, he may have got up to 1000 miles.

Nice bike, but if it was mine I'd have a day removing some of the unecessary blang (bad bling!!)

Perhaps I should just buy his old one!!!



:D


P.S. Strange but true, MY MATE STEVE rides a 990S!!!

Maybe because it's just like the bike he really likes - but virtually unused. It makes sense to me.
Spot on Alan :thumbright:

Once he has removed the unwanted bling, sold the private plate on it and sold his old bike I reckon he will come out even (if not with a profit). At the end of that he will have a bike with less than a thousand miles as opposed to a bike with 23,000 miles. Simples :D

Then all he has to do is spend the profit money on all the KTM services and repairs it took him to get his previous bike up to 23,000 miles!!!

Kinda odd thinking I reckon?!?! I have an odd fascination with getting as many miles on vehicles as I can... yes weird!!



:D

You'll get a good bike if you do ;)


Oh please don't tempt me, oh shallow one... I am a man with terrible will power, who loves spending money he doesn't have (now) on bikes he shouldn't buy!!!

PM me how much he want for it please Bob.

Damm, drat, look there I go...
