I have been lurking on this site for a few years now. I am not a "forum junkie", so it is pretty new to me when it comes to posting and what not. I have been riding dual sports for almost 25 years now and appreciate the wealth of knowledge the Inmates share here. I am fixing up an Adventure 640, it runs but was abused pretty good by the last owner. First question: Has anyone ever lost spokes on a 1999 KTM Adventure R? I live in Alaska and enjoy the big tank on the bike, I am working on building aluminum boxes to protect the pitcock and tank, anyone have actual plans? Here is a short video of the old KTM riding next to the pipeline in Alaska: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uS4c1KO6OkU Do you have a place where people share gopro videos? Thanks again for all the knowledge and great posts, From a long time "Lurker". Ralph.
