You need to practice. I did my rear tube last Friday in under 30 mins from pulling over to riding away

24 LITERS not gallons.

This thread reminds me of one of those games we played in 2nd grade where the teacher would whisper a story in the student's ear and they would whisper it to the next person and so on around the room.... and at the end of it the story had zero relation to the actual story.

Did you hear about the new KTM Vstrom? er... Adventure?

Change is never taken lightly and I'm sure when its time to buy a bike, the wait will be months out for orders.

1190 Adventure (non "R" model)

... and the "standard" model, with 19/17 inch wheels:



Claimed weight is 230kg for the standard model, 235kg for the "R" model (ready to ride, with a full tank).

High fender...

I know Geek posted his photoshopped 1190R high fender pic w/ the SE/690E fender...

I wonder what it would look like w/ the MX bikes (the Dungey bike) new angular front fender. It probably wont fit with the way the upper part of the new fender mounts, but just curious. Anyone w/ good photoshop skills?
