Renting a KTM 990 for desert trip. Looking for advice.

Hey guys,

Im going on a trip thru the desert in two weeks on a rented 2010 990. I ride two Hondas back home, 450x/250r, and Im wondering what sort of things to be careful of and keep my eye on?

What basic tools would you recommend? This will be my first trip on a KTM so Im looking for some general advice on the bike.

Your rental agreement does not include a phone number to call if the vehicle breaks down? Where the hell are you at??

You posted this in the Thumpers section. You will probably have better luck in Orange Crush which is where all the KTM 990 peeps hang out...
