Hi there! Finally the decision is made! I will start a motorbike world trip this year in September. I just bought the new KTM 1190 Adventure R bike for the journey. Can't wait to hit the road. Hopefully the necessary tires will be available by beginning of this journey and the electronics will not trouble me in any kind... The trip will start in South America!!! So there I am right now. I have to get the motorbike ready for the shipping to Valpariso Chile. I have another 2.5 months left. Everything else is already done. Paperwork etc. From my point of view there are no special upgrades necessary on the bike. KTM is really awesome. Everything is exactlly how I would it expect to be on a adventure bike. The only things I will add ... 1. the Touratech engine protection and 2. the Touratech Zega Pro cases! 3. a GPS System (not decided yet) Now my questions! 1. Any recommendations about things I should check before I start the trip. Any known problems yet? 2. I would like to install the Zega cases 31L and 38L boxes, since I got them for my previous bike (KTM 690) already. On the exhaust side the little Zega box sticks out so far from the bike. I was thinking about to get a smaller exhaust to get the boxes closer to the bike! The TT frame can be cut an welded again. Did someone ever try this? In Germany there is onle the Akrapovic exhaust available, that is not much smaller - so no option. Since I didn't get the TT frame for the boxes yet I don't know the width of the whole setup. If anyone has a number for me theat would be nice. 3. How would you protect the bike from theft? 4. I had good experience with the standard tools that come with all the KTM bikes! Any recommendations to bring along besides the kit? 5. Does it make sense to install tube tires? (rim form the Superenduro maybe) That's it so far!
