Hi Guys.
I'm waiting for the 2017 AT's to arrive before I buy mine. This is a great forum to learn more about the bike. Thanks for having me.

Good to have another Aussie on here I'm waiting to take delivery of my 9/16 Red ABS model hopefully this week! I'm from SA/VIC border in northwest Victorian Mallee

I want the tri colour DCT. Hopefully 2017 models arrive soon. I've just sold my KTM 690 SMCR so I'll have to get used to the extra weight.

You Will indeed, any particular reason for the change to the AT? I'm coming off a CRF450x so I'm also going to have to get used to the weight and the more docile delivery of the big Dual Sport.

I loved the 690 but I saw it's limitations. Great fun just to go to work on but had no carrying capacity, uncomfortable and small fuel range. I used to have a CRF450X but couldn't use the power off road. It's a weapon. I now have a KTM 350 Freeride for off road.

Yea I can understand that, our main riding conditions around here are Deep dry Sand and that saps power my 450 is uncorked piped jetted and cammed and I still find places I could use an extra few HP but in singletrack it's a bit much for most mere mortals.
