Viewing the World from a Two-Wheeled Perspective

My New Bike

Well, I finally did it. I bought my first KTM. It’s a 950 Adventure with only 5,000 miles on it.

This makes Edward really happy because now when we travel together we only need one set of tools and spares. It makes me happy because while I love my DR650 that brought me to Argentina, I always felt slightly beat up when traveling long distances. Now I won’t with a V-Twin and 300 more cc’s.

Here she is:

  1. Awesome!!! Although, Justin was selling his 950 Adventure in Chile last month. You should have bought his and rode it north 🙂

  2. Sweeeeeeet! That’s the one bike I rode that really made me say “WOW!” Great choice.

  3. Great!! You earned it with all the miles you’ve put on two wheels in the last year!! It’s the right progression though… DR350, DR650, 950ADV …;-) Enjoy!

  4. Has she got a name yet? 😉

  5. Did the DR go bye bye? I can certainly visualize you putting some serious miles on this new ride.

  6. awesome… you will enjoy.

  7. Thanks everyone! I love the new ride, and for some reason I’m really tickled that it’s black and not Orange,,,even though at heart it’s orange…

  8. Oooooooooooooooo ……pretty!! That’s all I know about bikes … 😀

  9. who painted your grass white ??

  10. @ Onalee= pretty AND fast!

  11. @ Bill = one of these days, I’ll live in a climate where there is year round riding! (Note that I DID ride anyway despite the snow on the ground last weekend. Brr at 42 degrees!

  12. Rock On! Can’t wait to see it in person and ride along side! I want one!

  13. very nice Alisa, very happy for you! Can’t wait to see your bike and you, and Edward:) in some great scenic shots in the next year!

  14. Nice bike, Alisa! You will enjoy it. But be warned… once you’ve drank the orange koolaid, there’s no going back.

  15. Sweet! Edward calls his Tiger, you need to call yours Panther, a black panther.

    So, which exhaust sounds better? His or hers?


  16. Ha! We just watched “How to Tame Your Dragon”, and the Black Dragon (the Night Fury) was nick-named ‘Toothless’….but had fangs that could come out and rip you apart. We’ve been calling it toothless in the garage because I haven’t ridden it much yet.

    His exhaust = Remus. Sadly, I like his sound better. Good thing I usually follow when we ride together!

  17. Alisa, it was good meeting you in NM. All the very best. Jim
