Here's a few before running the iron man course in Odessa, Wa last weekend. Mine is the blue S model. Many people must have thought there was an earthquake along the course. Do not, I repeat do not get behind one of these big things on a rocky hill! You do not have enough protection.

I fitted my new 19/17" Excels with Dunlop D607 radials (110/80/19 & 150/70/17 tires on 2.5 & 4.5" rims).

IMO this is what KTM should have done with the low bike right from the start. The stock bike is already excellent but these wheels & tires show just how much better it can be on tarmac.

Lighter handling, quicker steering, much more stability and feedback when leaned over and subjectively twice as much grip. Very confidence inspiring. This is by far the best mod I've done. Simply awesome...




This is a 2003 S bike lowered to 'regular' by swapping out all components involved. The overall height of the bike dropped another 15mm at the seat with the 19/17" wheels. The lower it gets, the better it gets...

O.K., I am the white ghost sponging down the orange 990 in page 58 and it seems RaidRallyRider is sharing out my pictures without my consent J

Yeah, it’s a Gobi top case made by Hepco Becker and yes, the Efes Dark absolutely goes better with dirt free, sparkling KTMs… (a bit too sterile?)

Sorry Walter, Black ones look sharper but orange ones are faster!!!

I took the picture, using my camera, so it's my picture. You have to pay me royalty fee to use it.

Omg !!

Picked it up this morning about 11 and didn't get home until after 7. It definitely brings the 'enjoyment' factor back to riding - for me! .

It looks clean, although not for long... can't wait for the 1000km service and AKRO's .. although she sounds good stock.

One pleased KTM Adventurer ...

Funny the sticker on tank read: 'Read the owners manual before riding this bike'......ehhh yeah right, only problem was my dealer is 120 km away from my home, well I took the risk of riding the beast before I read my manual
