2006 KTM 950 — the Turbo Giraffe

The fleet at Black Dog Farm was increased by one in the spring of 2010. Jim bought this over the phone and final­ly got a weath­er win­dow to fly down to the San Fran­cis­co Bay area to pick it up and ride it home. It is a 2006 KTM 950 Adven­ture. So far, it has proven a wor­thy and capa­ble trav­el­ing com­pan­ion, cov­er­ing near­ly 1000 miles in two days in com­fort and with style.

The giraffe was Jim’s ride for his half cen­tu­ry walk-about in May of 2010. You can find details of his jour­ney on his blog Obser­va­tions.
