Good luck with the idea Bikerfromsark: I also like the KTM thread and I would think it is of great use for folk who are evaluating potential bike purchases.
I say "good luck" because some threads cannot stay on topic for more than 10 minutes it seems (BMW F650 for one): hopefully this will not be one of them.
Anyway, for what it is worth, I had a TT600R with the 3AJ engine, but it is sold now: the whole sorry tale was why I came to the HUBB in the first place, about a year ago as it happens. I got a lot of good advice and online assistance of course!
It was a very low mileage 2001 TTR with lots of previous owners (bad sign!!). It turned out to be the proverbial lemon: the short version of the story is in my early posts and threads in here (around Mar 07 - summer 07). I don't go about knocking the bike as such: I put it down to my bad buying experience - a great shame but life moves on - Caveat Emptor (spelling?).
ps I followed your bike prep posts last year: all good stuff - happy travels!!
