Ktm 1190........wow !!

Took the 1190 Adventure out for a quick 112 mile blast today. I'll do a write-up asap, but for now, all I can say is WooHoo !!


Good luck exploring the infinite abyss

WooHoo is right. Could we get some close-ups of your garage wall?

Never been a fan of the KTM Adventure look, but the last version looks much better, and I'm sure it's one hell of a bike to ride!!

The new BMW GS, KTM 1190, or Ducati Multistrada - I'm staying up at night wondering which to buy when I come into big money

I've ridden the Duke and now the Katoom. Up next is the new 12GS whenever I can get it organized. But it's going to have to be a hell of a bike to come close to the KTM.

Big money -- and a miraculous overnight spurt of growth in my legs so I can reach the ground!

One of my chums had a KTM 990 (adventure-bike, but don't remember the model), followed by a GS1200, followed by an S10.

He ALWAYS waxes poetic about the KTM being the BEST on dirt of any of them!
