Howdy fellas. Alright, as y'all know, me and my Yamaha SuperTen aren't really getting along that well, and she's up for sale after just two months and 4000 KMs. NOW the tough part begins: what to buy next? I narrowed down the choice to two bikes, considering my budget, what I've ridden in the past, how I plan to use them in the future, and so on. C'mon, you know what I'm talking about it, it's the usual stuff. - Bmw R1200GS- KTM 990 Adventure Step by step, let's start with the Bimmer.I already had a Bmw, a '13 GSA 1200, triple black. T'was beautiful. I had to sell it for a lot of reasons. For starters, money issues, as I was dealing with a lot of rough crap in my company. Then, that bike was actually too big for me. I'm kinda short legged, and even with the seat on the lower position, I often found myself tippy-toeing. On the other side of the coin, I loved the boxer engine: lots of torque, good fuel consumption... As long as I was RIDING the GSA, I didn't had a single problem. Those arrived the moment I had to park it, move it around, and so on. Another problem I personally have, is that, given my budget (8500 €), I could only afford bikes from 2004/2005, with roughly 50/60k KMs... And now, the big K. Gotta admit I don't know a lot about that bike.I've been searching left and right on youtube, and my old magazines, in order to get an idea, and all I could come up with, is "she's awesome offroad, but not as good as the (or any, for that matter) GS for touring". Now, is anybody kind enough to elaborate on all this? I really like the KTM (my fiancèe not so much, as she said: "it's godawful"), it has that Dakar look, but as you know I use my bikes mainly for asphalt touring and the occasionals fun days in the dirt. How's the fuel range on the K? How many KMs, average? Reliability? Known issues?Btw, I really like the 990 Dakar edition. Y'know, the blue one, with the orange saddle/tank? Alright, I think I said everything.
