Last week, somewhere in France:





Also tested the range of fuel, got as far as 450 km. with one tank and 2 gallon Rotopax. That's with 50/50 offroad/fast tarmac driving and with full camping gear loaded. (Beated the KTM950, wich had about 2 litres of fuel extra, and less luggage. It ran out just 7,5 km before me )

Yeah, on my recent tour with a 990ADV he was taking 2 to 3 litres more than me every fill up.


I didn't bother checking against the 950S because he rides like a nutter.

Hey Dubl A are you running the Karoo 3s? If so how do you like them? I am in love with Mitas at the moment.

Yessir

I'm diggin' them for my Tiger but have a wager on how quickly they wear. Obviously if price is an issue there are other options that may work better for most but just the look & feel of these makes me want to climb a mountain!
