    It’s an apple core. So you hand your buddy the core of an apple you have already eaten. Wow. what a guy.

    It's a funny picture. He's probably frustrated from waiting. He was the first up every pass we did yesterday. Imogene is no joke. Good times.

    2 days and 300 miles in Allegheny National Forest. Northwest PA. Dirt roads, gravel roads and a little blacktop through some small towns. 70 degrees, no humidity and blue skies. Surprising conditions for end of July. 890 runs great and good machine for Adv, BDR, cross PA trail stuff. I need to get it deeper into the woods and on some single. Overall I really like and have had 300/500/1290 but its a good all a rounder and handles nimble for its size. tempImageFIP8rj.jpg DF56E523-4E4B-42ED-86B0-57BFE54694BC.jpeg tempImageRKzAIS.jpg tempImageWJizbl.jpg View attachment 3110991 tempImagetWmV7G.jpg 7EDF5F6E-6568-410E-BF75-85F5553D1C54.jpeg

    Thoughts on all of those Tenere's in comparison to the 790/890? I love the Alpine Loop, we try to go every summer either on bikes or in a 4x4 but I had to cancel this years trip for work commitments. I hope to have the 890 up there next summer.

    I took her out for her maiden voyage this morning before the heat turned on here in south Texas. FML, Cruise Control is amazing lol. I can't wait to get this break-in period out of the way so that I can see what she's really capable of but initially I am extremely impressed and couldn't be more pleased with the purchase.

    I almost bit off more than I could chew on this one trail and ended up bailing before it got ugly. When they rate it hard take it to heart... lol

    From my experience, with my KTMs and Yamahas. Every time I get on a KTM I feel like they designed the bike just for me and no one else.. Riding position, power, ergos spot on, but they fail so much, I keep another bike around. With Yamaha,I spend some money on to make it "for me" but I never worry, because I've never had anything fail on me.

    It's called the Penoke trail loop if you find yourself in NW PA with a bike someday. If I were younger, a better rider, and on a smaller bike that last section looks like it would be a fun challenge. I ain't gonna say it's un-ridable on a 790 unassisted, but I'd have to see video of it happening so I could be properly awed.
