ktm 1190 across the Sally Gap, Wicklow, ireland
A beautiful day for biking so I headed for the hills:
The road is narrow, badly surfaced and full of bumps and dips, ideal for adv biking
Straight stretches of road are, thankfully, a rarity:
We had a very cold spring, there's still a smattering of snow on the hills:
The bends keep on coming at you:
Ideal conditions for running in the new bike:
I think I earned a cuppa after 70k of bends
The 1190 was flawless, I was lifted out of the saddle a few times when going over bumps and dips, the suspension coped perfectly. I had the suspension set for one person and street, comfort might have been a better option - next time !
The fuel injection is flawless, no surging of any kind. I should have luggage and a gps in the next few weeks then I can travel a little further from home.
