It is a bit of a problem as I use a 2" riser and the forward bar position for comfortable standing position similar to Turn_One. Paul at HDB has made a mount for the 2008 and current instrument as well as one for the EXE style instrument which attaches to the top clamp. I use the GPS mostly, but have missed seeing the fuel light a couple of times. A Rotopax tank saved me. I am working on a new mount for the 2008 instrument which attaches to the HDB and moves the stock cluster up a couple of inches as well as forward.



Here's Paul's HDB mount. I think there may have been an issue with the brake line when using this mount.

KTM 690 Seasons in Finland

Riding in Finland is almost 365 days a year business, only the coldest days are the limit. That happens maybe once or twice a year, and you know it is not a time to ride when the polar bears escape from the north pole.

I have to apologize, there is no bike in every picture. Usually the pic of the dog forgives a lot, even if Sulo The Dog is not a puppy any more.




If you are ever enjoying a warm beer outside in Finland you are not the sharpest pen in the drawer. Or you have very little patience. Never drink and ride, also in Finland.




There is few off-road trails that are open for enduro riding. As a default, off-roading with motored vehicles is prohibited in Finland.




Fortunately there is A LOT of small countryside roads with minimal traffic. These roads originate from logging business.




...which have speed limits. If you can't do at least 20 mph, any time, any weather, you have no business here whatsoever. Go fast or go home.




In the midsummer there can be quite hot, up to 30+ degrees C ( ~90 F ). And a lot of mosquitos. A Lot of them. In your visor, between your teeth, in your beercan. Every region in the world have their own bugs, we don't have scorpions.




Sulo enjoying the salad bar in the midnight @ midsummer.




Test riding my wife's bike. Is it really so that this cannot go any faster? I know, it is wise not to push it...




Hundreds of kilometers of countryside roads with no permanent residence ahead. I think I will blip the throttle.




Autumn mist. If we can't see them, they can't see us. You have to remember there can always be somebody as stupid as you coming ahead as fast as you.




Bike is orange and off-road capable. A WW2 memorial place. Norwegians have payed a visit.




Midwinter is excellent time to exercise for better riding skills. And to infiltrate a top secret radar station. And plant a device of biological warfare. That was executed by Sulo the Dog.



A little by little the sun is climbing higher, day by day, month by month. Time to head back to my garage from the radar station.




In Finland there is two riding seasons. Knobbies and studs. With 25 mm enduro studs the grip on ice is similar to rubber on tarmac. Snow is like gravel.




I wonder if there is a business for a motorcycling Santa. A Santa gone bad. Not really looking for nice children. More like bad women.




In the spring morning after a very cold night the snow can carry a motorcycle. It is like white ice. You have to know when to come back to nearest road because in the afternoon the snowpack turns to a bottomless slush.

Ready to hit the road...or dirt

Ready to head out on what ended up being a 410 mile jaunt through Oklahoma and Kansas.



For those of you that installed the Adventure-Spec case guards, was just a single bead following the shape enough? I've got some sensor safe blue silicone that is fresh. Think it will do the job?

thanks
