I am waiting for you to hit up some local dealers and see what all you see. As much as I enjoy seeing you research into the bikes, online they all seem one way or another until you are on them.
That duke is the same bike I'm in. Highway sucks if your going over 65. Windbuffer is high like most other supermoto. But, that is such a fun bike. You have to be careful tho it has torque out the wazoo. I highly recommend the bike. I also would love to that color rather then the custom job the previous owner had installed.
Did some more reading on the KTM Duke. I don't know if its right for me or not. a couple articles say its not good for running on the highway, which I spend quite a bit of time on the freeway and highway.
Also the articles say its not very comfortable.
So I am not sure. I may be leaning back to the GSXR-600
I'm hoping to make up my mind soon.

They are the lame duck of the KTM range .Anything with the 640 engine is lacking the point of a KTM which is crazy assed nutterness . If you want a supermoto you get the 625 or 660 or 690 .. Or for the ultimate hit of stupidity the Superduke ... but it is most definatley totally and utterly not recommended without some years and many miles of riding done .. and ya still got to watch the fecker .. flip you off in an instant it will .
Alright. I don't wanna sound like a broken record, but I found the bike I want. The only thing is that it's on eBay. And in another state.
So it has to be shipped. I bought my ninja 250 on eBay from a dealer and everything went smooth.
But I think this guy is a private seller. When I bought the ninja 250 they sent me paperwork and everythig and signed and mailed it back. Easy process. But since its a private deal, shouldn't there be less paperwork? I had to py taxes twice. But that was through a dealer.
Here's the bike: http://bit.ly/RmAxja
30,000 miles. Looks really nice. I know I shouldn't buy it online because I have to pay to have it shipped. But I realllyyyyyy like this one and it's not likely to show up anytime soon.
Also, I know I haven't ridden it, but I didn't ride the 250 before I bought it either.
This is kinda one of those "have to have it" things.
Has anyone bought a bike from a private seller before on eBay?
