so i posted this in the newbie section and nobody replied, sorry if this is spamming:

i have the opportunity to get a 1995 KTM lc4 400 RXC reasonably cheap. i've looked around at conversion costs for motardation but my concerns are about the KTM as a practical daily driver?

i found a thread about oil changes being a PITA on a good day. what other quirks are there?

how well will this bike be suited to express way speeds (45mph) can it do freeway?

i'm looking for something low on the maintenance intensity scale, and my riding is mostly around town with occasional trips to the twisties. also, i'm a fairly large guy, 6' 250lbs (working on converting it to all muscle)

any insight is appreciated

You can def. make that bike meet your needs, a 400 will do well over 45, you just have to play with the gearing. For the most part any motard with an exception of the KTM Duke requires frequent oil changes and yes is a pain in the ass but you get use to it. I live in NYC and there are tons of guys ripping around town on 400's. If you can get a good deal on it I am sure you will love it once it is set up.
