Awesome Thanks for posting that.

Key Points I got from it...

The Adventure is the number 2 seller. Very cool didn't know that Let's get that number up to #1

No KTM rider gets left behind (the very essence of our little group here , eh?)

Only 1 mechanical issue all weekend!!!


Think I'll go for a ride right now..

Pretty sure the guy is only talking about numbers for South Africa.

Definently, cool. Crazy if you think about the difference between the number one bike (KTM200) and the number two bike (950/990). Weight, power, cost, function are pretty opposite.

I think a SuperEnduro with that paddle, and the forks slid out of the triples as far as possible with a cushy rear spring, would actually make a helluva dune machine. The Adventure is just too heavy in front to be really effective..perhaps also a big, wide front tire for flotation? Dunno...
fun vid. but on the drags you should have a bug jump on the CR and then keep walk'n away.

Keep'm the vids come'n, I plan on throw'n mine on again this summer.

$250
I used a Chang Shin Dune Hopper. $60
5.60-18 10 paddle.
32 PSI
no rim lock needed on the stock rim.

It's a tall tire. IF your running a new chain and your adjustments are all the way in, the tire may not clear the swing arm.
Running a 16 tooth front sprocket will set the tire back far enough that you wont have a problem.

You have got to try this front tire the next time you go to the dunes......

Make the front end on the beast float....

http://www.kingstire.com/KT-921.htm



The KT-921 front tire featues a unique, three-rib directional tread design, which increases cornering ability, and a lightweight, flexible carcass for added flotation in deep, soft sand. A must for all serious sand riders. For use with the KT-977 rear tire.









Retail












$45.95

I thought it was yours just for a moment!

But I couldn't believe anyone could be that unlucky

That's very bloody disappointing for those of us that don't live in SA
Jealous doesn't even start!

Although I've seen Red Cherry adverts around, they hire 640Advs I believe
That would be fun!
