the 790 in its natural element! Eastern Oregon hells canyon area
Transpaña: through whole Spain only offroad
LOVE this bike!
Wow!! Where did you get the skins ( graphics ) for the bike and rims?
Shout out to Big Orange owners.
I am a current owner of an 08 BMW R1200gs, but I am seriously considering a switch to the 790 Adventure R because of the versatility of said machine, meaning its capability of doing on and off road equally well.
How are 790 Adventure R owners liking their new rides?
Any pitfalls with these new machines?
Thanks in advance.
Lot's of info under the general 790 thread:
The mods thread:
My personal opinion on the bike, issues I've run into, mods, etc can be found towards the end of my ride report:
That's a lot of bike to free out of the mud! I'm considering taking my 790 down to Florida this winter but I've almost buried a 250 in some of the mudholes they have down there so not sure I'm up for it, or have enough friends to help me when I sink it.... LOL.
Come on down , it’s not that bad
Dang, with dem arms I'm surprised you didn't just jerk the bike out and toss it out of that mess! :)
It looks like you could just put it on your shoulder and walk out.
Admittedly, my line didn’t include sliding into that rut, but once I wound up there I’m glad I had some friends.
Funny how no one ever takes a picture when I do something cool, but the second I do something stupid...
At least you are smart enough to know that pulling a strap on the forks/triple is better than three people pushing!
Having one of him is better than having three people.
Do you miss the wee at all? I am getting the 790 R beginning of next year, and I toyed with keeping both, but once I get the 790 I don’t think I’ll be putting as many miles on the wee.
If you could have both, no financial concerns would you have kept it, wee
You won't ride the wee much if at all once you get the 790, unless you are under 5'8", since you would feel stretched on the 790, and comfy on the wee. I still have the wee - sort of. I gave it to my son. Its a great all around bike that is fun on the street especially. But, after riding the 790 for a while, with the new Motoz Rallz tires I put on, I don't think I would choose the wee when sitting side by side in the garage. I think the wee cockpit is too cramped for me, even though the low seat was reassuring when I was learning. The seat is a bit more comfortable and the ergos are more relaxed.
I went a few hours north looking for some nice orange scenery but it's still mostly green.
I thought you were going to post some photos of a kawasaki group you encountered!
I used to paddle & play in the Elora Gorge over 30 yrs ago and on my drive up from below TO I always saw a beautiful stand of bright red maples in the fall. They were visible to the west just around Hamilton on hwy 6. Another nice drive would be Appleby Line, up towards Rattlesnake Point where I used to climb. That drive in the early AM with a bit of fog, riding between those trees that line Appleby is pretty cool. Nice view of MTO from Rattlesnake as well. Look for pockets with really cool,damp evening/night air - they will have changing leaves for sure. Hug the Niagara horseshoe.
Took these a few days ago. Colours started changing 1000 miles north of you many weeks ago :)
