Nothing wrong with the KTM1190R, well there is,
but what else is out there ?
Nothing that a guy can push it along a bit offroad, survive ok if it's thrown down the track and carry some gear, go 2up.

Well that was until last week when I added two more bikes to the fleet that need major work.

I did get rid of a TT350 last week as well so it all evens out.
3 ktm's and none of them run... that's a shock

Two of them run, ones just not registered and the other needs some pretty bits bolted to it.

The 3rd supposedly runs but I haven't tried starting it yet.

It also doesn't help that my new shed is now an indoor swimming pool...

Sounds like alot of drama mate.

This is the easy fix to get a 100 watt headlight plus 100 watt accessory's system.
Or the system can be upgraded to 240 watt split into two 120 watt systems.
For around the same price as the BD dual sport kit.

The kit is plug and play.

Crash as in dropping it on the dirt at like 80kph ?

No drama at all mate , I have considered this ^^^ route but the stock head light its just plane ugly ( just my opinion ) + you get the key switch and other fancy bits like the LED braking light which will bring the piggy in the 21 century . Shame they dont sell the HID diablo unit anymore .

I didn't know they stopped making the Diablo,
i was wondering about two of those Squadron side by side on the stock cowling.

Interesting listening to what JC says about riding at night and lighting
