1190 Adventure, please convince me

The Explorer(s) were just a disaster. First one was a 2013. Before it ever hit 10K it had issues where the head had to be rebuilt and the transmission had to be rebuilt. It was in the shop for over...

I never really used the CC on my previous Explorer, but that doesn't mean I don't agree that it should be available. It would be a nice option for KTM to offer 1190 owners.

No, not likely if both are doing it and it is that "slow." Haven't had any other issues with keeping tire pressure so far, through 3 sets of tires. You might want to consider changing the valve...
