Okay folks, am thinking of buying one of these. SHould I? I have test road and can get a second hand '06 so I want to know if this would be preferable for 2 up touring in outback Oz or not. I have not had anything to do with KTM in the past, I have been a BMW person and am also considering an R100GSPD. Had one for ten years, sold it 5 years ago and still regret it. ALSO: Are the factory KTM panniers any good? The one I am looking at already has the racks fitted ($700) so I would get the panniers. If they are no good I will opt for a set of aluminium jobbies (touratech or the like). I like the idea of trying something different, but I could also happily go back to the PD. I also tested the 990 Adventure. looks good, sounds great and goes like a cut cat. But costs twice as much.
