Joel, I use Acerbis Supermoto front fenders on all of my bikes.

For my XR650L, the air flow is much improved to the cylinder & head, and it looks super cool.

I bought a 2001 CR250R in June and rebuilt everything in July; I rode it last Sunday at Pala MX and had a blast!

Finally a real adventure/off-road video of 1190. I was tired of all the videos that shows it on the pavement, comparing it with GS1200. Now I like it, even want it...

Haven't ridden one yet, but I'll let you know!

The 990 was like a 250 in the dirt, and I'm a pretty bad rider.

I imagine it would be like a Gas-Gas in the dirt for an accomplished off-roader.

The 1190, from what I'm hearing, pretty much replaces the 990 and then some, but there's always a bit of personal preference in these matters.

It's a Ty Davis 449.

Not going to be around anymore since KTM swallowed Husky.
