New KTM 1190 Adventure R riding apparel

Check out this new riding apparel from KTM? It should solve the hot seat issue for sure!

Finally

So after walking into my local dealer (now long gone) 3+ years ago and putting a deposit on the "next big KTM adventure", it was finally delivered Saturday. My amazing wife drove 1500 miles round trip to pick up my new baby.



Can't tell you how psyched I am to have this in the garage!!



A bit cold but still had to take it for a quick spin - 31.5 degrees and no ice on the roads - good enough for me.



Now I have three days to build it out and make it Baja ready. I guess that is ONE way to break it in! New tires went on tonight and much more to come in the next several days, not that I am complaining about the next couple late nights. Just glad it is here in time for the trip!!

Congratulations! My wife got me one for my 40th. I have to wait for it to get here though. Please post pics and details of your modifications / changes and of your trip.

I am trying the Karoo3s for our Baja trip. Haven't tried them before so we will see.

There are some photos of our prototype skid plate here. Just received the final prototype today so that will be going on shortly. Will try to post pics later today of the finished version.

Will try to document the build as much as time allows. Lots to put on in three days. Will definitely post pics from the trip.

Thanks
Kurt
