Now that's a cool shot. How the hell do you get on and off the bike. There is no place to put your foot down!

I'm guessing he stood up on his seat and crawled over to the rock.

Finally I can show you mine...



First of all, hallo to you all and thanks for this great site.

After owning many bikes, and with a long story in off road biking, I can show you my new 990 Adv S.

So far the bike that has impressed me more in my life, does it all and very well.

After racing the last years in trial, enduro and supermotard, I had to quit due to severe injuries in my knees and my shoulder (twice torn ACL in my left knee, meniscus on the right knee and a boken collar bone), so I decided a one year off racing recovery period. I sold all my racing bikes ( GAS GAS 280 PRO, KTM 450 EXC, KTM 560 SMR) and the plan was to keep only my DUCATI MONSTER S4RS, to do some quiet stroling in town...

But while selling my KTM 450 EXC, the dealer (smart ass) showed me the ADV 990 S, first I was not very impressed, I've always lover light racing bikes... and that beast, 200kg, 100hp and unbelivabely tall... crazy austrians...

I tried it, couldn't believe... in off road handles as a typical KTM, easy to move, fun to ride and very, very much under control, but the best was still to come...

Unbelievable road handling, ridden just as I like riding in the tarmac, leg off and and rear wheel control, just like riding a supermotard, long and natural rear wheel slides, deep leans into the turns, I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT, amazing bike !!!!!

I inmediately bought it, fitted AKRAS + smaller rear windows (superduke) and I'm the happiest guy on earth...

Went for a ride to Cabo de Gata in Almería, Spain (a wonderfull combination of twisty roads + dessert tracks and beautifull beaches) and had a real great time...

Conclusion: I will always have one like this in my garage.

With my small experience I know three useful things when crossing a deep river :
1) never do this alone (you may appreciate help if you get enlized...)
2) take care to keep water out of the air box (you will know it quickly if water get into your engine...)
3) if exhausts are under water like you can see on the pic do not stop your engine or it will probably not restart

I've respected those 3 advices so I got out fine

I'm really thinking about building a snorkel for my katoom

Not being a fording sort of a person, am often curious how people judge the depth of river crossings prior to crossing.???
