    A few of us have been talking about the idea of a KTM 790 Aussie meet-up. Would be great to get a bigger 790 fanbase together now that borders are opening (fingers crossed they stay that way) and a great excuse for a ride!

    Just guaging interest at this point..., proposing early March 2021 in the NSW Snowy's. If there is lots of interest, we will need state coordinators and experienced riders who know this area to propose some local rides, so please flag your interest if you're keen to join/participate/contribute.

    Well it looks like this thing is going ahead Jack, and early March is the plan. Will keep posting further updates here and on the Aussie 790 ADV R Facebook page. Would love to have your crew along too!

    You should open this up to SE's as well so you all have something to strive for. :hide

    The King is dead... Long live the 790R (with decat, suspension work, maybe an Aurora / other facelift, Rottweilers new air box, etc, etc...)

    Love the SEs & all LC8s but they’re dinosaurs In comparison to the new shiny, but somewhat flawed 790 (890) generation.

    Come on the 790 Muster!

    Let's start at Dalhousie Springs, head East.... and make our way to Jindabyne for a(nother) right old piss-up!

    Really, I'm not fussed where it starts / ends but I'll be there. I'll be really, semi-retired by then :photog
