    Amazing bike. Slowly turning it into a light-weight adventure bike. Most of the gear I had for camping was previously purchased for ultra lightweight hiking, so the weight I put on the rear subframe would be minimal.

    KTM 690 Enduro R (2017)

    I've added over $4k of modifications to this cycle shortly after purchasing it. I'm intending this cycle to be a dual sport in purpose, and a USA BDR rider in particular. So, it will see freeway roads and speeds in excess of 75 MPH with hours of seat time slabbing it. It will also see sketchy two track and possible some single track, mud and for sure, some deep sand. So, *lots* of different conditions will be in view during the build, and as you consider the mods I make, please keep in mind my purpose for this cycle. Everything is a trade off, a compromise. Including cost. For instance, I did not / will not add a Rally tower or Rally type lighting. It's just too darned expensive for my purpose. But, I *am* big on protecting the cycle from hits and drops. So, I build out a layered approach to protection, with an eye on weight since I'll have to pick it up when I drop it. I'm also big on protecting *me* in these various environments. I can do something about the (my) body protection with various clothing armor pieces. I try to be seen, too. So, I'm big on lighting up the front, back and sides because drivers need to see me as best as I can make that happen. Sure, BDR riding does not need all that lighting. But, getting there and connecting the trail bits via roads *does* need it. So, it's on there. I referenced a lot of other folk's builds, picking out the pieces that I thought would be beneficial without adding too much weight, cost, or just too "blingy" for my taste. Kudos to Rocky Mountain ATV.com, and ADVPulse.com for their build descriptions. I also bought from KTM Twins.com, but I'm not very happy with that experience (returns take forever, and they dinged me for a lot of cash, for doing it). Probably not buying from them, if I can help it, anymore. Have a look...

Get Your Bearings Monterra has a built-in 3-axis electronic compass with accelerometer and gyro, which shows where you're heading even when you’re standing still (or not holding it level). Once calibrated, its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you even can use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions. A built-in UV sensor lets you know your exposure level to sunlight so you can avoid sun damage, especially at higher elevations (5 percent increase in intensity every 1,000 ft of altitude) and on bright or reflective surfaces (snow, water, etc).

    This is my 3rd Multistrada so I guess I like 1st was 06 620 purchased FireWire but she never road os daughter and I put 8k miles on it. 2nd was 2010 st put 40000 miles on it had lotsaproblems but Ducati always mmade it right and it nevrr left me sttanded. Put Ohlins semi active suspension computer system upgrd unbelievable improvement. Pikes Peak is more refined than 2010 but still a blast to ride wears out tires PR4S @ 3 k mile intervals but they're hooking up mostly mountain abd canyon riding

    Love the bike. Complete rebuild/restoration ($4000 or so). The 2nd/5th gears and 14R/48 sprockets are great choices. I love the look I've ended up with and couldn't be happier with the ride on and off road. Great bike for me.
  7. So i live in some pretty remote areas and we ride some vert expansive mountains in colorado. some of our rides stretch more then 100 miles How are you guys navigating around the woods. Our MVUM maps are black and white pieces of shit that hardly are accurate. Last year i spent $700 + the cost of maps and a ram mount on a Garmin What a complete piece of shit. That thing is totally useless. A complete over priced pile of junk Garmin support can't even get it to work. ITs a joke It shuts off while riding, looses tracks its a joke The maps are terrible and i feel like i would be better off with a fregin compass I have tried GPS apps on the phone and all it does is murder my battery for the day leaving me with no phone for emergencies The apps constantly crash Everytime i need to check the map i need to pull it out of my pack instead of just looking down at the mounted garmin etc Is there any good solution? We have so much technology and yet this is still a problem

  9. It's 2016, and I still read (and hear) people saying things like: 1"smartphones won't work where I ride" 2"smartphones can't work without cell towers" 3"smartphones aren't waterproof" 4"smartphones aren't rugged" 5"smartphones will fall apart from the vibration" 6"my garmin has maps !" 7"my garmin is more accurate !" So let's clear some stuff up: 1 unless you're riding underground, yes, it will work just fine 2 completely wrong. gps functions just fine without cellular towers. or wifi. or bluetooth. or nfc. all of these are antennas, none of them need cellular service to work. think. 3 completely wrong. lots and lots of them are waterproof. google it ! 4 completely wrong. lots nad lots of them are rugged. google it ! 5 completely wrong. in the last 4 years of smartphone'ing my way around, none have suffered a failure from vibration. ONE phone smashed when I threw it across the garage and it landed in my toolbox. my fault. 6 congratulations. you only paid $150 for those. openstreetmaps has maps too. for free. for the entire world. 7 completely wrong. google it. there is a mountain of evidence suggesting that garmins are ... a little behind the times to be polite. For future reference: MAPS = the pretty tiles you look at while zooming, pinching, and planning routes. GPS = JUST and antenna. it doesn't talk to satellites, it doesnt need cellular service, it doesn't need ANYTHING besides 3-4 satellites to calculate where you are on the planet. yes, it does the math. nothing magical, nothing wild. it's math. CELLULAR DATA = the thing you use to make phone calls, upload to instagrammish, browse thumpertalk, send texts, whatever TRACKS = things you record with the gps antenna ROUTES = things you PLOT on a computer, or your phone, using data sets about roads and trails. Google Maps = in 2016 google maps works offline too. It can plot directions, and give you a route, while offline, if you download areas before going off line. NOT a good choice for offroad. There are TONS of applications that do a much better job with offline mapping that Google Maps. Look in the android market. They are there. They are mature. They are fully featured. Exploit them. First person to say "I don't think it will work way out away from cellular towers, where I ride" wins a prize.
