You guys ever decide to do 7 mid western US states, I'm in. I'll also do Austria Germany and the like. Romania is pushing it but I'm gonna have to get there for the Romaniacs Enduro after I do Erzberg

Well I finally got sick of my stock headlight and decided to make the move to LED. 36W & it comes with some mounting brackets. Not sure if I'll still run a front number plate at this point. For now, probably not. I'll do my best to do a quality installation.

Once I sell my Bugatti Veyron I should have enough money to do all that.


I would like to do the TAT someday for starters. Then work my way to riding in other countries.

KTM Adventure Tours

I'm looking to do a KTM adventure tour in Europe next year. They supply the bike and all accommodations... you just have to get their and back. Seems pretty reasonable if you stay out of the war zones.

Rob, Looking forward to seeing what solution you come up with.
I don't really like the stock light either.

I'll be sure to post up a few build pics. Apparently the bikes produce AC voltage so I got a full wave rectifier as well. That and the light set me back about $75 to the door. The light has got a glass lens and aluminum body, which is nice. A fellow rider gave it a very favorable review. Hope it works out. Worst case scenario, I run it off a separate lithium battery.
