Wait, you traded your 390 for a $600 bike? Or did I miss something...

Also, congrats on the "new" bike! I've always lusted after one of those.
We traded plus he put up cash AND the following list of spares;
WP adjustable shock
Brembo 4-pot caliper
Aluminum subframe
Original & spare tach (original failed, never installed the spare)
OEM brake & clutch levers
OEM mirrors
OEM kickstarter
Bag of a dozen each of 3 different sized crush washers (apparently necessary for oil changes)
Spare taillight assembly
Replacement original seat cover
3 different size rear sprockets
1 sare front sprocket
Spare o-ring chain
Original hard copy of factory KTM service manual
Thumb drive including digital copies of WP suspension manuals, factory KTM service manual, other digital documents

Like you, I have always wanted one of these and so far I am not regretting it. Got the tags this morning and spent part of the day locking up the rear wheel and timidly practicing sliding the back end.

...he gave you a physical thumb drive? Wow!
Seriously, what is this, 2007?

Letting you photograph his phone with a QR code showing, one linking to a folder on his google drive, that would seem to me to be the respectable way to do this sort of thing.
An actual physical medium... I hope you scanned for malware before extricating any files?

Hey I still use thumb drives to store media rather than clog up my iCloud account and get constant reminders to upgrade my storage limit. So there is precedent in my world, although I assume this will quickly get lost in the pile of thumb drives already taking up space in my laptop bag and one day future explorers will find it and wonder what this has to do with all the dog and Disneyworld pictures on the other drives.

I don't much like cloud storage much myself (it's just somebody else's computer, nothing else).
It's just useful to transfer data to someone without need to set up an ftp, and for stuff going beyond limitations of email attachments (how the fuck can it be 2021 but enough too many email providers still bounce any attachment larger than 25 MB?!).

Lack of a job meant lack of health insurance which subsequently made me reticent to get out and ride this much. Lame I know but middle age fucks with your head in strange ways. However I just found a 10 mile stretch of some twisty roads about 60 miles from here (because thats how Florida does it) and I was thinking this weekend to check it out. If so I'll snap a few pics.
That having been said, I have been blasting this around the neighborhood and practicing my rear end slides. I am still not any good at it but baby steps.

Mapped out my route to this little twisty road (actually about 30 miles from the house), got things sorted at home and headed out this morning. Beautiful weather and no traffic, made it through the flat straight stuff to the trailhead and decided to pull over so I could get some pictures for you people.

Alas when I saddled back up to actually get to ride the road I rode all that way just to ride, the bike was completely dead, no electrical power whatsoever. Because this is a proper SuMo there are absolutely no tools on the bike so I was unable to do a fucking thing with it. Call home to the wife, she showed up with the trailer and back home I went. I was very dispirited but I figured I would take at least a stab at diagnosing the issue, pulled the saddle and battery cover off and the problem was immediately obvious. Bad main fuse. In speaking with the previous owner who is a super nice guy who responded right away, this is more likely than not the original fuse because in all of his years of ownership he never changed it, and the bike only had 800 or so miles when he bought it from the 1st owner.

Beyond aggravated, I've been stressed out lately and really needed this ride.

Not gonna argue, although I also just read an article on how to photograph your bike and so I tried to apply some of those principles in those pictures.

She definitely has plenty of spring in that thing.
No wait, she's got lots of brap in the back. No that kind of sucks.

Who's jealous of that saucy supermoto? This guy! Glad the fix was easy. You'll have plenty of room for fuses and snacks in the saddle bag that will be at your doorstep in a few days.

As it so happens, the rear signals are integrated into the taillight, and in fact the PO gave me the original ones among the numerous other OEM parts he took off. Guy was meticulous.

Been commuting on it mostly, but this weekend is my birthday so I am going to light out for the twisty road on which a fuse blew last time. I should really put a smaller rear sprocket on it and stretch its gearing out for highway work since its not all curves down here.
