You're on a KTM not a Harley, what's with the trailer ride from IA to CO????
Can't wait to see the photo's section 3 area6 and section 4 area 7
Well, the track got a bit faster today. This is my GPS recorded top speed. On dirt at almost 10k!
South of Leadville.
Here is a view from the rear. I had a front row seat as Orangecicle tried to stay out of the rut in the middle. However he was unsuccessful and in a spectacular display of flying dirt and dust came to an abrupt halt.
Me: "Dude! Are you okay?"
OC: "ummm, maybe..."
Me: " Good. Don't move while I get my camera out."
No drama there, other than my tanks pressurizing and puking fuel everywhere, including all over me.
North of Gypsum with Kelly.
A little rain in Steamboat.
New 1190 Rs waiting to be abused . . . er, ridden.
Excuse me Mr Orangecicle, I think the better line is to the left.....
:) Throttle Rockers should come with the warning, "Not for off road use."
I'm not ready to admit that this photo depicts poor riding skills. For now, let's just say that it reflects some very poor parking decisions.
thanks for posting. I am hoping to have $ saved by spring for a 990 of my own.
this is the type of riding I am looking for.
mind you the desert 100 and Virginia City Grand Prix are still on my list but I am thinking less hazard on a dualsport ride
Actually rode it! Will I buy it? No. But I did ride it. :)
Here's the spot on Corkscrew Pass where my bike stopped. I coasted back down from here.
beautiful pics and awesome rr. congrats for riding in.
must have met you there at the rally just didn't connect.
great event, my first time......and i received the most coveted award....
and with good stuff from the sponsors.
What did you think of the 1190R? I'll be testing both the "r" and the street version this October here in Portland. I did ride a 990, and loved it. How does the new bike stack up?
Awesome photos, BTW. Colorado RULES ( I lived in Denver back in 2004 - should never have left)
Well, here's the deal. The 1190R is a great bike. A fabulous bike. The bike has gobs of smooth power, has all the bells and whistles. But . . . would I buy it? No. It's just not what I would ever be in the market for. I hope KTM builds a mid-sized bike with great off-road capabilities. Until they do, my 950 will do just fine.
