Been reading about the direct LED headlight replacement bulbs. Anyone have any experience with these or has switched the stock headlight bulbs with these?

Gone and Done it!

Hi All,
After a long process of deliberation and contemplation, including following various threads on the forum here......then much haggling over trade-in, yesterday I ordered an orange 1190 Adventure

Should be in my grasp late in second week in February

After having owned quite a few bikes over the years, including some that were almost new, this will be my first brand new bike!

Excitement building

Regards

Guv

How odd, my '12 GS1200 has the same break in procedure.
Shagged rear Tourance+deep loamy wet dirt=distal fib. fracture….

Do the physical therapy, it really does the trick. Mine is now three months old and still a little achy but not too bad.

Congrats - I may as well stop lurking and make my first post too!

I just put down a deposit on a 2014 1190 std (orange). Should be here sometime in March. It's my first bike in 20 years (rode a YZ offroad when I was young, then a Ninja a little later). I've been hanging out on these forums for the last couple months soaking it all in and have learned a TON from you all. Definitely enough to know that the KTM 1190 Adventure is the bike for me.

The dealership in Concord, NH, didnt (and won't) have a demo available, but I did sit on the "R". Decided that with probably 90% pavement, the standard would be right for me.

Hard to contain the excitement - it's been WAY too long! Farkles will come later...right now I'm overwhelmed with researching helmets, gloves, boots, riding gear, etc. Starting from scratch again.

Can't wait to post some pics when the girl comes home!

Great first post! You'll love the bike. Orange Koolaid is refreshing.

Just talked to a friend, the guy that talked me into the 1190, he bought the one he rode at the dealer demo in Austria. Apparently when they installed the US software to import it they had a corrupt file so none of the electronics worked at all! the good news it was perfectly rideable without any of it! makes me feel a little better about electronic failures.

2014 KTM Adventure 1190 Thread

If I understand you correctly, the abs, traction control .....etc. was none functional. Yet the bike was mechanically rideable?

Excellent news! At least we can get home if the system fails.

Mate, welcome and congrats on a great choice of bike. I would strongly reccomend a riding course as well as all the gear you are getting...20 years is a long time and 150hp can be very unforgiving to a 'rusty' rider!

Congrats on the bike and getting back into riding. I was in this same situation a few years back. Expect to make a few mistakes about gear and other items as you learn what you like. For all but a helmet, you might want to try Craigslist for pants, jacket, etc. At least that way the mistakes will not be so painful and you can always put in back on CL if you do not like it.

Best replacement rear rack and radiador

Hi all

Thoughts on the best replacement rear rack and radiator grill options?
Rear rack Multi use for Givi luggage and soft luggage for off-road a good idea?
Already have the KTM aluminum panniers

thanks

I'm still waiting on finding the right rear plate but as far as radiator protection goes Radguard from Australia is very nice. It has an aluminum frame with the mesh in the middle and fits perfectly. This is one of the best aftermarket parts as far as fit and finish I have bolted on.
