The switched I have seen supplied with hot grips look like they are more suited to a 1950's BSA Bantam than an modern machine like the KTM. Completely out of keeping, IMHO. The answer I am thinking...

I simply create a route in DeLorme Street Atlas, then upload to my GPS using the built in "GPS Exchange" funtion. Note that it only uploads the route itself, not the map.

I plan to be there as well. I live about 50 miles from Gurnee, so looks like an early start for me to get there by 8:00am. See you tomorrow.

Yep, my '06 950 squeals pretty bad from both ends. Just under 2000 miles so far, and not yet had a chance to investigate. I guess I will be checking out the other posts on this subject............

Can the ABS be turned off on the Adventure 990?

Just wondering if the ABS can be turned off on the new 990. I know it can on the BMW R1200GS, but someone told me that the KTM did not offer that option. Surprising for a dirt bike. What's the truth?
