inquiring minds need to be satisfied
if you ever get sick of that red one sing out
That CL450 arrived a few weeks ago, and I have to say it's nearly as much fun as the RD.
I had no idea they went like that...
Oooohhh, it does exist. No ride photos? Or is it too shiny
Hey guys, lve not had tubeless rubber before so how low can the rear tyre pressure go before it slips on the rim?
We were up the 42nd last month and I had to ask myself the same question.
I had Bridgestone AX41's on, and I wouldn't go lower than 25psi....
i’ve not had to reseat a bead with the little pump i carry, so i cant say whether it could or not. might try that next tyre change.
Spray deodorant and a match....
Did a dustybutt on my r100gs at 15psi front and rear . Tyre may have slipped on the rim, dunno. Was fine, in fact a revelation.
I normally don't go under 22 psi
Excuse the newbie, probably the wrong forum but a couple of Jaffas on very shinney new bike are looking to head out of Auckland tomorrow (Sunday 20th) for a ride to maybe Raglan or that way in general if there is anyone heading that way it might be good to tag along.
Look what's being officially released by team orange at Eicma this year

I like the new Husqvarna 901 Adventure bike - see https://www.adventurebikerider.com/...w2bWCb2zx-WUqvVDQzp22KUQh4GnK7olCzHIrrPeZ6X3c
The global ADVbike market must be substantial I reckon, I can't think of any other bike segment (or cars for that matter) with so many new models currently available and in the pipeline. There's supposed to be an 800 KTM, a new 1200 DRBig coming out in the next year or two, not to mention the T7 which should be hitting the shops latter this month or next year.
In a couple of years there will be lots of 2nd handers for us tightwads to chose from....the tiger will probably need replacing by then
Yeah... Sorta looks like a sheep in wolves clothing....
Anyone had the fork internals re-engineered yet? Very harsh in the first part of there stroke. I need mine to be softer.
Ah, so they've put the 690 forks on it.
I must be slow and missed it, now there's an 890. Makes sense after the Duke that size I guess.
Shame, the KTM NZ website is only showing the Rally version (with its uprated suspenders, akra pipe etc over the standard Adventure R), of which there'll only be 700 worldwide. What caught my eye was the claimed 100Nm of torques which not far off the 1090.
