KTM Newb Here, Finally!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I just recently joined club KTM! I used to race hare scrambles back in high school and a little after college, so I've wanted a KTM since the mid-90s. I wanted a Duke for probably 10 years, since the first-gens, and I finally found a great 02 Duke II and snagged it up! I'm very stoked. Haven't gotten a lot of saddle time yet, but I've been smiling ear-to-ear. Handles like a dream. :smirk:

Anyway, I look forward to learning and contributing whatever I can to this forum. Already learned some good stuff.

-Len

      What are these? Big heavy 550- 600 pound road bikes with dirt tires and an upright position?
      That seems to be them.
      To me an "adventure bike" is one that you travel on remote roads which aren't developed.
      If you're not able to pick it up when you drop it ( and you should daily ), then it's not an adventure.
      Try picking up a 600-700 pound bike by yourself on a loose steep road....ain't gonna happen.
      So it beats me why these bike manufacturers don't take a DR,KLR,XR and give them a 6 speed tranny, and a modern suspension. These are the real adventure bikes...fun,light and you can power slide and get her loose without worrying about being crushed when you drop. The only one that's up to speed is the KTM. Instead, these are stuck in the 1980's tech department.
      Thoughts?

      Let's face it, TT is a pretty good resource for dual sport riders, but not so much for riders of large adventure bikes. Late last year, we starting working on building a community dedicated to large adventure bike riders and we'd like to invite you to join us. You can find us at http://www.xladv.com
       
      The community is still a baby, but it seems to be steadily growing and some good ride reports are already out there. While it's based around discussion forums, we did bring over our Virtual Garage and Reviews System. We also have a community photo gallery where you can share your adventures and browse though the shots of others.
       
      So, if riding large adventure bikes is one of your passions, we'd love to have you.
