    I know there are a bunch of motorcycle enjoyers/riders on OTN, so I figured I would share my latest bike news....
    As some of you know, I had a 2008 KTM Super Duke for a couple of years, I bought it brand new and put 17k miles on it. It was a completely amazing machine, but then I got the itch to travel farther and without boundaries, so it was time to trade it in.
    I called up the great people at Starr Cycle in Mankato, MN and told them what my plan was and that I was interested in finding a 990 Adventure, so they called around and found one at a different dealership and picked it up for me. I drove down on the day before Thanksgiving and made the swap and then made it back up to Minneapolis before it began snowing. From there I had to load it on a trailer and haul it the rest of the way to Duluth.
    I am now the proud owner of a 2012 Adventure! It now has only 150 miles on it, and spring can't come soon enough!
    Here are some pictures for your enjoyment :eek5:

    If you buy a new 990 and you don't get laid in 24 hours, you have to give it back. It's true, look it up.

    So when do you leave for Dakar?

    Thanks guys, it's definitely a bad @$$ machine! I love the colors also, along with the hand guards and crash bars. I want to ride it terribly bad, but we just got another foot of snow and there's an unreal amount of salt on the roads too... As soon as it melts and I can at least make it to the forest, it's go time!
    And as for the getting laid part, being my second 990, I can vouch for the sex appeal (just be warned that both genders get turned on by it)
    Feel free to ask any questions!
    On Advrider, I am KTMSAM :)

    Waaaaay to awesome man ..... My cousin is HUGE KTM guy .... had an '07 Super Duke, Duke 1, & previously a Super Enduro. Now owns a Duke 2, and bought his gf a Sherpa, and now he wants a 990 adv desperately! I traded in my Ninja for a new Triumph GT last spring! Loved the speed and agility, but likewise, wanted a bike that would handle long trips! Going down to Deals Gap with it this year!

    Have fun man!!!

    Spring, please arrive!

    Sounds like he has had a good batch of Austrian beauty, Battman! I'm a huge KTM fan (if it wasn't too obvious), but these aren't my first machines...

    I have a question. How much sex has riding ktms gotten you?:naughty:

    Ten points for whoever knows what KTM stands for WITHOUT looking it up.

    I know what it stands for, but I will save it for the rest of the guys to see if they know... Clue: the first two letters are names, while the M is the city in which it originated and still remains.
    The Super Duke was responsible for 4 girls while I was single. The adventure hasn't had the chance yet, but now I have a feeling my girlfriend will be the only one haha

    It stands for "keep to motocross" :hs:

    I have heard it, can't remember.. Kofielfe Tonkenhause Motorhoffen is my retarded stab in the dark guess. I know it's all very Austrian sounding.

    And btw... fuck motocross. Ktm dominates real world manly shit. Baja, romaniacs, dakar, erzberg, basically any enduro where you can get lost and not be found until the wolfs or bears have started to eat your decaying carcass.
