Finally decided more fun had to be had and sold my trusty old 1991 Yamaha 850 TDM which I have had for 15 years.
First having almost decided to go for a Yamaha MT-07 my attention was caught by an ad for a 2014 Duke 690 with 2500km on the odo, seller was local.
After a short test trip the mind was made up and keys in my hand.
The bike looks like it just got out of the dealer's and only have a couple of mods.
Existing mods at purchase:
Orange Crash bars
Crash spools front and rear.
PP Ergo seat (to be installed and tested today)
O2 mod from kevxtx (to be installed and tested today)
Givi wind screen (to be installed and tested today)
PP luggage rack with Shad SH 37 top box (to be installed and tested today)
15/42 sprockets (in the mail)
Hand guards (to be ordered soon)
Original grip handles are a bit too thin for me, but I have not found any grips that fit on the throttle as OEM with bigger width yet. Any suggestions?
So far I am loving the bike and the way it feels in corners and twisties, enjoying riding again
