>>> So now should I deduct 10% of the distance? :-))

In most cases not from the distance but just from the speed. ;-)

I didn't feel much difference either, but they sure are hot as hell. I guess I will only use them in really cold weather, which we have a lot of here in Norway.

Yes of course.

Now another more pressing problem with the heated grips have come to my notice. The damping adjustment menu is gone!!!!
Called my dealer who fitted the grips and they had newer heard about such a thing. Hopefully they can fix it on Thursday, as I'm leaving for three weeks bike trip on Saturday! Feels like the bike is on Sport damping now (it was when I put it in the shp), but have no idea of preload, as the one/two/luggage indication on the dash is gone as well. Judging from height it is on one person (as I left it).
Anyone else experienced this and know for a fact that it's only a plug and play fix? (my nerves are thin at this point)

They need to reload the electronic suspension , I had the same problem and I couldn't change the damping and there was no man signal in my dash board and they plug it in and boom it's done. Go to your dealer and say them to plug your bike in and ask the computer for trouble shooting ;) hope you will sort it. Because your eletronic suspension isn't working at the moment !

I am sooooooo close to getting one of these :-) Any opinions on the optional luggage with metallic cases? I am leaning towards the Holan Nomada setup as it looks a lot better. Decicions, decicions.......

Holan Nomada is by far the best looking luggage for that bike. KTM plastic cases are ... ehm... let's say they are *different*, I'll never do that to a bike I love And I don't like the asymmetry and width of the oem aluminum cases
You may also want to drop an email to globescout to learn if they are developing a luggage system, I bet they are.

have you seen them in black colour already?




btw, toolboxes by Holan that I was talking about couple of weeks ago are also finished and just went to mass production today
this is how it looks



keeping your weight as low as possible isn't a bad idea, right?

If you guy's are going to run the straps through those alum. clips I would highly suggest taking some emery cloth and lightly sanding down the sharp edges on the aluminum clips so they don't cut through the straps from vibrations. I've had that happen.

KTM 1190 Adventure Luggage Options

Anyone got any suggestions for luggage options they have tried outside of KTM panniers, actually panniers in general really?

Something a little more sporty looking perhaps?
