First thing I did, when I moved to Castlegar, is put up a poster of a KTM 640 Adventure. I had sat on one at the Vancouver bike show the previous year and thought it was about the most exotic thing ...

In my garage tonight is an Adventure, the best year, I believe 2006. It is immaculate. No, really ... it is.

A good friend, and obsessive KTM rider, drove me to ST. Albert to get this bike.
Thanks to him, it arrived tonight safe and sound. 2000 km to get a KTM ?  This one is worth it ...

Thanks Dave !!

I am almost certain it's illegal, not to mention just plain "wrong", for an adventure bike of any flavour to be that clean once it leaves the showroom floor. Please rectify this immediately or confiscation may result...   Bigsmile

Got dirty, then had to scrub it up for hibernation.
These really are awesome bikes.

The grass is sparkely ...But yes, we still have green grass ... frost ..  I rode up a gravel road .

Dirt, massive washboard ,  a long summer of dust turned muddy.  Still, this bike is lightyears beyond my dirt experience.

The KLR was a reminder of my dirt past, I found it so much fun.  The DRZ400 overwhelmed me ofroadd, so fast,  amazing suspension. unreal bike on many levels, horrible for more than an hour on pavement.

We talked about it. Not sure how you would have reacted to knocking on your door at 6am on Rembemberance Day however.

"Birdrunner !!" .. knock knock ... "its LIZ ! WAKE THE FUCK UP! "  rofl

Grabbed bike and dashed back. A one day thing.
