9025 miles.
Add riding and camping gear and it’s ready for adventures.
I’ve been soo happy with this purchase. It’s brought me a TON of adventures that will be life long memories. I need two back surgeries so I need to go for a lighter bike for now.
I’m selling to go back to local trail riding. I bought a KTM 500EXC that I’ll probably turn into an ultra light Adv bike for now.

This is a DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) bike. If you don’t know what that is, it has an automatic clutch and the shifting is either automatic with multiple sport levels or you can turn it to manual and shift with buttons. It’s pretty magical and makes you look like a hero on the trails.

I bought this bike new, with the plan to check off a bucket list ride on the Trans Continental Divide trail. I spent a couple years dialing in my gear and the bike. It’s been an incredibly reliable and fun bike to own that has been a joy on numerous adventures.
My riding buddy bought a KTM 1090 and we recently rode the CABDR. His bike had a couple problems including a completely fried clutch through the 50 mile sand wash north of Yuma. My Africa Twin with the auto clutch and DCT transmission ran flawlessly for 1100 miles through some amazing country. Even to run to the local KTM shop to buy him a new clutch. ;-)

Extras
-Multiple extra oil filters
-Factory Honda Heated grips new-unused
-Tall Wind Screen (bought before riding the bike. Never needed it for the type of riding I do)

Had Roseville Honda do the 600 mile service and I’ve done all the services since.
Used Mobil Motorcycle Synthetic oil since the 600 mile service. I’ve done an oil change before each big adventure ride even though it’s recommended at 8000 miles which is mind blowing to me so I change it before big rides.
