With trail braking, the front of the bike drops and it turns tighter, my 990 does anyway, no matter what the Einsteins on this thread say. The size of my front hoop is 21" back.18" I recently test...

I was talking to one couple of weeks ago. The moto cops here have the new KTM 1190 adv, and I've got the 990 adv. We had a good chin wag about the bikes, a nice guy.

Broken down

How would you indicate to a fellow biker that you're broken down and needing help, instead of just having a smoke. I've heard of helmet on the ground, clove pulled over the mirror, amongst others.
