I coulda called the cops, pulled into the station and had one of them sitting there waiting for me. But then again police here shoot first, kill ya, then try to figure out if they were actually in danger... but that's a whole nuther thread better suited to some other forum.

So back to this bike: let's talk tires. As far as I can tell the only choices are the stock Conti's, TKC80's, or the Karoo 3's I've been running for about 2500 miles now. The rear is getting close to squaring off. Are these three my only choices if I want to stick to the stock tire size? I know I won't get more than 3000 miles out of a rear TKC 80 but I might try that one cuz it cannot be any louder than the Karoo 3. The Karoo 3 has been fine in everything, even deep river bottom pebble sand - though not great - they just handle funny and are super loud. The D606's/MT21's I've run on other bikes aren't this loud.
1190Std: I've had Conti's TKC 80 Front and Rear - front has been pretty good handling and wear - the rear very soft - e,g, had a small stone - not even that sharp, penetrate the casing between the tread!! (i.e not the sidewall) Couldnt believe it.. . Also found the Knobbies were starting to tear off in a couple of place s. and the wear was incredibly fast. Note I am by no means a violent or very fast rider.

Changed to a Karoo 3 - have same experience as you Good but noisy and fast wearing.... . I used to have a 990 and found the Dunlop Rally raid was a great rear tire - used to run it with TKC 80 on front - really good combo... but the size is not available for the 1190 Standard. Probably going to try either Mefo or Heidenau next on the rear anyway.

I think I saw a pic on here somewhere of a Standard with a Heidenau K60 on the rear. Did someone mount up the 150/70-17?

I have K60s on the G650GS and love them. Work great off road and have been long-wearing so far. The continuous strip around the center of the rear smooths them out on the road.

Beantop cut the center strip out of his K60 with a "Knobby Knife". No handling problems, tire still wears well an the mud traction is much improved. Heideau only puts that center lug on the 140 and 150 tired.

Earlier, in the 2013 thread, someone posted that there had been problems with riders dragging the Rumbux skidplate/crash bars when healed over in a turn.

True?/Not true?

I have Rumbux fitted - I have never had this - it is actually a very close and neat fit... just can't see how you are going to do this

After re-reading that thread and thinking back to my experience with the Karoo 3, it is a fine tire that is sticky enough to get away with plenty of stupid shit, you just gotta replace them too frequently. But i suppose that will be true for any tire that is good enough both on and off road.

From my last ride I can state that the k60's last 10k miles plus. I finally got bored with it and wanted to change it out. They did fine off-road on a Tiger Explorer but I am already riding far harder off-road on the 1190 Std than I ever did on the TEX.
You got 2500 miles from the K3 rear? That sounds like plenty to me! Glad to hear it!

RumBux Skidplate

I have not had any problems. You would drag a lot of other stuff before you ever dragged the plate or bars that it is mounted to. Like the Center stand or the side stand. They may have been re-engineered for 2014, I don't know for sure.

Luggage, lights, KTM Adventure Off-Road Package

My 1190 Adventure R is supposed to be delivered to the dealer this month and I'm trying to get all the farkles arranged prior to delivery. In talking to Touratech, it sounds like KTM has designed their luggage rack to fit a little more closely to the bike on the non-exhaust side, allowing installation of a 45L case on that side while maintaining symmetry (in terms of distance from center to exterior of case). Has anyone used the KTM luggage rack with 45/31L TT cases, and if so, can you share a picture from the rear?

Has anyone gotten KTM ADV Off-Road Package? How are the aux lights in that package? Do you know who makes them or what the specs are?

Many thanks,

jb
