I watched the whole video and did not find it terribly useful. Mostly just how it compares to a Hyabusa and why an adventure bike feels different to him.

I've got some new video from a weekend trip of the Terra getting nasty in the rocks, in case anybody is interested. She is just rolling up on 6k miles this week without any problems, and I have been...

I would guess that it was just the most compact way to meet emissions and noise standards while still providing enough flowrate. A single pipe would have to be quite large and could not be tucked up...

I was using the stock sprocket for that riding. I have a one tooth smaller sprocket that I picked up for riding in the sand barrens, but I took it off soon after trying it out. The problem is that...

The stock tires would have been a handful. Remember that you don't get a sense of depth with a video like that. The hillclimbs (and descents) were loose and steep enough that stock tires would have...

Good thing I don't crash then. :D

I generally will not go places like that alone unless I am on a very small bike.

Some video proof that the Terra does just fine on rough offroad once you throw a set of TKC-80s on it. Just skip ahead past all the dirt road stuff to about 12 minutes or later. The limited...

Just threw one of these on my Husky TR650 and it works great. No stumbling or stalling off idle and buttery smooth throttle response now. The only bad thing is that it almost makes me content to...

I just picked up a used KTM 950 from another ADV member in NY, and hit the trans mass (easy part) on the way back. To make the battery last the whole time I set my GoPro to just take pictures every...
