I'm sure Ted is too much of a gentleman to take Money for the KTM. Have you got a mess of collard greens you would be willing to trade him?

Yo Nano, are you positive your KTM Adventure doesnt have springs you can replace in the clutch? I have been reading up on the clutch washer stacks in my sons bike, his is engaging hard and I ws going to change the stack to soften it up (when it runs again), and I read that the hot setup to make the clutch engage quicker for beginners is to use Adventure springs. I see yours is a 99, maybe they started using the three shoe clutch and springs later...

Where do you carry the phone while riding? And why there? I've wondered about this. (small mind, easily amused)

If I carry it on my person, I'll have it close by if something happens. But it has a good chance of being damaged in a get off.

If I carry it in the tank bag it would probably survive an accident, but I may not be able to reach it when needed.

What say ye the masses!
Inside pocket. In a good, protective case. Here is the logic I prescribe to:

There is a good chance my bike and I will be separated. In many cases, that may be desirable. Tank bags may be a great place to carry some things, but as I may separate from my bike, the tank bag may separate from both as well and sometimes cannot be located (say...if it flys down the canyon wall or something like that). I cannot guarantee I will be able to get ot my phone safely if it is not on my person in case I feel it is not safe for me to get up from injuries.

If the phone is in a durable case (i.e. Otterbox on iPhone) and on an interior, chest wall pocket...well...look at the armor on your gear. Usually the most common areas to get 'whacked' are back, elbows, knees, hips. It seems to me that a moderate amount of protection and a place where the phone is least likely to get damaged...but still on your person is one of the best possible scenarios.

YMMV
