KTM 950 adventure beast.. Ready for around the world..

Well here it is.. I simply don't get time to ride as much as I used to anymore and with new toys coming here soon as well as prepping for a big move...my baby has to go..
Here is my ktm 950 adventure I completely prepared for a round the world trip.. Things changed and my wife and I decided to do it in a land rover instead.. It was built with the best of everything and built for reliability.. I completely went through the engine and did all of the upgrades recommended, new design oil shafts, new water pump impeller and shaft, black dog cycle works side stand relocation and bash plate kit.. high water air filter relocation kit, very expensive accessories relay box that allows you to choose between hard or ignition switched supply. Just installed brand new gel battery.. Has emig racing steering damper and bar risers and pro taper renthal ktm bars, heated grips, staintune stainless exhaust system from Australia and they sound like a vicious dog... hepco Becker gobi bags (all 3) european headlight with hid conversion and european headlight switch allows you to turn the lights off while riding (in case you need to not be seen or to save battery power) lc8 auxiliary spot light system that mounts a HID and a halogen light under the main headlight.. Also a secondary system In case you have a light failure, has auxiliary sockets , powerlet and regular..2 stage heated hand grips.. Corbin seat..removeable dual sport mirrors, GPS ball socket mounts.. Touring windscreen... The list goes on.. This bike is an absolute animal on the street or off... I have personally been power sliding this bike on dirt roads at speeds close to 70 mph and it handles beautifully, will also power slide on the street and then wheelstand all day long.. Trust me, I have gotten the tickets to prove it.. Will do well over 100 mph on street or dirt..has the bad boy super loud air horn system on it also..original paint, this is not a trailer queen fluffy poseur bmw gs 1000 or 1100 .. This is a serious bike..not for a wannabe...interesting trades considered but dreamers need not apply..no cash..no thrash..also this bike is high... I'm 6'2" and can just flatfoot it.. Can be lowered.. Midgets and little men need not bother..).. Call or text ..and you could be ready to head to Africa and beyond..$6000 for a board member..

And don't worry dale.. I won't be getting rid of these any time soon..so it makes the trans alp a bit archaic... Cool but archaic and redundant..

Yea, I sold all the big bikes- loved my 640 and the big GS-A for long rides like Newfoundland, Alaska, and Central America. Saw you did the TAT a while back- we should of known each other then ;-)
I kept the TA as it is light and ahhh, seasoned like its owner...
Thinking your 950 might scratch the itch a little better now that the shoulders are new.

I'll tell ya.. The 9 fiddy doesn't just scratch the itch... It rips the skin right freaking off...and I love it.. My ducati 900 elefant is setup for high speed desert riding and I have done quite a few rides through the remoteness of Nevada a few times.. Heavily modified with cr500 redesigned front suspension with 21 inch wheel etc etc and I just finished putting a 944 kit in it with fcr flat slide 41mm carbs on it... And it's an absolute animal also.., but I did Mexico for a couple of months on the 900 elefant and across the USA in the 15 years I've owned it so I will be keeping that one forever... So the fiddy has to go...

Bump for a great bike - I'd keep the 640 and elefant as well

I've got an '04 950 and absolutely love it. That's a great price especially considering all the farkles.

Someone is going to get a nice ride here.

NYC Boost HQ will shortly be offering secure bike store facilities ... So ini88 can have his toys again.

While that commute looks like fun I wouldn't like to have to do that every day... And would hate to do it in a car.... And yeah, for that commute I'd preference my 640 with no bags on it..a wee bit more nimble and slimmer...

And I saw how many people were on his entourage, with chefs, caterers, mechanics etc etc.. And I saw how they had to do all that training beforehand and how they BOTH were whining about how hard it was and how they hated the heat and etc etc..and I saw how many troubles they had with the bmws.. And if they aired that many problems with them I shudder to think how many they really had.. I'm sure since BMW had a part in producing the series that they limited footage of too many problems...
Please don't get me wrong, I have watched all of their videos numerous times and am not taking away from their accomplishments, they are both very brave people for taking on those challenges, I just don't believe that it was as challenging and harsh as the videos made it out to be,...there are plenty of ordinary folks who have done and travelled and endured far worse with zero recognition.. I loved the videos because I believe it got people out of their comfort zones and tried something a bit adventurous..even if it may have been short lived..
I will give an example of...one car too far.... Watching that sensationalized crappy "adventure" series speaks examples of what the average viewer believes..

Then you've seen the part when they desperately want to use 'cool' KTM's and KTM says no as they wouldn't make it ...
