Oh boy. New twist.
Option A: Pick up a new BMW Sertao in mid October or November.
Option B: Hold out until April of next year and buy a 2006 KTM 950 Adventure from a buddy. This particular bike has less than 7,000 miles and has almost never seen dirt. Looks showroom new. The price? Much less than the Sertao.
What say you? I realize this kind of takes things in a different direction. Trailsurfer, didn't your ride buddy have a KTM 950/990?
