For Sale: 2007 KTM 640ADV and Sold: 2011 BMW 1200GS

**Both bikes have sold**

Low mileage 640 Adv, really one the best factory built adv bikes. Great suspension, excellent fuel range (>300 miles) and smooth powerful single cylinder. Ok, might have exaggerated the smooth part, but the vibes never really bothered me.

Upgrades:
-Carbon fiber tank guards
-CJ designs wide footpegs
-Renazco seat
-HDB hand guards and top clamp
-Doubletake mirrors
-Enduro saddle bag
-Akrapovic exhaust
-BRP triple clamp with submount (scotts damper not included)
-Oxford heated grips, with digital controller (uses less draw and will not drain the battery if left on)
-Carb re-built recently
-Probably more stuff I am forgetting about
-There is a new TKC 80 rear tire that will go with the bike

Has some battle scars, but runs great. 9,104 miles.

Wow... both really sweet rides!

I cannot help but ask what the replacement bike will be?

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Long story, but I had an Africa Twin on order and cash to buy it. However, I was one of the guys too far down on the list and unwilling to pay well over retail for the few that were around. Bought the BMW as an interim and now it's time to go.

I wish this freakin KTM would sell already so I can stop coming here every evening and oogling over the %#€£ pictures!

I'm ready for a lighter bike and have thought about listing my Tenere but they're selling nowdays for far cheaper than I'd take for mine........ Maybe I'll win the lottery so I can buy this and have two bikes.......

Where did you get those carbon fiber tank guards? I could use a pair of those. I don't really want to put crash bars on my 640 Adv because of all the hassle every time you want to pull the tank. Those look like a good solution.

Thanks
