Re: KTM 790 Adventure R is Freakin' Amazing

As of about a week ago

Letko reported to me their first 12 were pre-sold, but they have 2 more coming in this month, and one is not spoken for yet.

Re: Free Gear

Somebody asked about the inseam of the BMW Rallye pants. They are a EU size 54, which is translated in their size chart.

KTM 790 Adventure R is Freakin' Amazing

...and the 890 is supposed to be even better! This past Monday, I returned from 6 days of riding through Death Valley, the Mojave Desert, and other parts of Southern Nevada and California. My steed was a KTM 790 Adventure R . https://i.imgur.com/yxGAwa9.jpg As you can surmise from the title of this...

That is as bad as I've seen mud in a tire! Wow.

Thanks for your generosity to put these events on, Luc!

CLAIMED! Free Aerostich Heated Vest

NO LONGER AVAILABLE

Nothing wrong with this vest. I haven't used it in a decade, but worked great last time I did.

If interested, post here or call me at 913.208.0842

Free Gear

FREE GEAR I want this no-longer used gear out of my garage. I am 5' 11" and 190 lbs. This gear was all worn and abused by me unless otherwise noted. So expect most to be size L or XL. Unless otherwise noted, expect most of this stuff has some stains and plenty of wear. Reply here or feel free to ca...

Re: Tour of Idaho (T1)

The time commitment is pretty important as well. Couldn't you ride a bike? Luc With travel to ID and back included, this is a 2 week commitment. That is a consideration for sure. I can definitely ride a bike! :D Did you mean "rent a bike"? Possible of course, but a rental for that long is $$$, and ...

Re: Tour of Idaho (T1)

No definite plan, but it's on the bucket list. I've wanted to get into Idaho single-track for a decade. 1,900 miles on a dirt bike for 8 to 10 days carrying camping gear is more aggressive than any motorcycle adventures I've had up to this point, and not to brag, but I think I'm up for this challeng...

Tour of Idaho (T1)

Tour of Idaho (T1) http://www.motorcyclejazz.com/TID_Route_Description.htm The Tour of Idaho is more involved and difficult than just riding the trails from one end to another. In 14 seasons there have been only 78 riders to finish the ...

Re: Sep 24-26: Adventure Palooza 2021

Thanks for the report, hbadventure! As for route choice, I was thinking same thing--while the West route is obvious choice for convenience from Kansas City area, it has to be the most boring of the routes...all things being relative.

Re: Ducati Multistrada Enduro

KTM 790 almost for sure, and probably the 790R, although either would suffice. I'll let you know around March 30 when I return from a week riding and camping off a KTM 790R in Nevada and California. Don't hate me because I'm beautiful. I believe a Yamaha T700 could put big grins on, too, and it's a ...

Ducati Multistrada Enduro

I don't know much about this bike, and it would be hard to imagine it knocking BMW off the throne, but couldn't help but notice it in this latest Klim marketing email. The face of this bike is mean! Looks ready to attack.

Unfortunately, we ran out of disk space, so the command I ran to revoke his membership failed.
