Chime-in here, people ... I have a '15 BMW GSAW & a '15 WR250r (adv. build). After riding a LOT since buying each of them, the GSAW is just too big, and the WR hasn't got the power I'd like. I am 47 , 5'8", 135#, 30" inseam (small), but athletic & healthy. Even after taking some ADV (large bike) rider/off-road training courses I'm still way too nervous off-road on the GSAW to have the fun I want to be having. I can wring the WR's neck and have a blast, but I'm left wanting for more now that my skills have improved a little. Question; Is the new '17 KTM 500 EXC-F's maint. intervals too frequent to make it viable for longer ADV trips (i.e., 1/3 to full TAT ride, etc.)? Keep in mind; I'd perform an ADV buildout the KTM EXC-F with all the ADV creature comforts needed for a middle-aged body & mind (see Adam Riemann's buildout for his movies), but I have only novice/intermediate mechanical skills. I love the idea of more power, MUCH lighter weight (sub 250#) and supermoto wheel options for paved back-roads with my street-only buddies. What say you ADV world??
