I quite like the look of that Jack, I tried one but it was too tall for me, do your feet touch the floor??????? :rolleyes:
Sister Sharribee,
the answer is no, not both feet flat, it is a tall bike but has the "low" gel seat now fitted as standard on 2007 bikes, I think it is now 840 mm seat height, but it is very skinny and your legs Go straight down rather than round and down (if you see what I mean??). and it is very light (about the same as the Alp) so a slight lean is nae bother.

To be honest I have never had a bike where I could get both feet down , you get used to it after 32 years riding motorcycles as a short arse.

So it's "one cheek off" at the lights now. I'll just have to stop wearing my man-thong as it will dissappear into the unknown !!!:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Just took that too far there didn't I :pale: :pale:

KTM Panniers - supplied and fitted free ( part of the KTM deal just now)
Scottoiler - supplied and fitted free
Crash bars - supplied and fitted free
Meta Alarm - list £350 supplied and fitted for £250
KTM Top box and bracket - list £200 Supplied and fitted for £150
Akrapovic titanium cans - list £640 Supplied and fitted for £540

I got a low cost service deal for 2 years , basically capped.
I got low cost finance 2% over two years.(KTM /Black Horse Finance)

It's all about "change over price" when you trade - in , but I calculated I saved about £1550 from "list" and green book trade-in price.

Yes Tarka I did a considerable amount of "sucking air through teeth" in a sort of "this could kill the deal" kind of way. The dealer offered me a low cost servicing deal , basically has agreed to cap servicing costs for the period of the two year warranty. On my mileage thats at least 5 services at a capped level............ result !!

OH and by the way - YOU started this ..........

HAVE YOU HEARD I'M GETTING A BRAND NEW KTM 990 ADV in BLACK ??
