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.
It’s not a small machine as this compro with the silver sedan shows.
A taste of things to come. A roadside shot from the retrieval trip.
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.
