    Fantastic video Jimmy Lewis just did on the 790 and was kind enough to answer my questions around the 30 min mark.

    So as promised, I have received the photos from the previous weekend project in Morelia, Mexico! What an incredible project. Teaming up, Motorrad Angels Mexico and Care4Water was able to provide 500 people with clean water! They conducted the water filter installations in 5 health centers, 4 communities, and 1 orphanage. Not only were they helping a huge amount of people they were able to have one awesome adventure too! They are planning on conducting more projects in the area for a possible 10 more health centers. So more info on that is to come! Safe riding everyone!

    GoldenTyre GT823

    What I heard from GoldenTyre West today: "It is our new product to replace the GT723. It will debut in 90/90-21 and 150/70-18 this fall. It is a true radial not only in the construction, but also in the materials used for the layers."

    TrailForm Chameleon Backpack/Chair

    Happy to have had the opportunity to try this product out and give it a review here! You're looking at an award winning combination backpack/chair called the Chameleon from TrailForm. It's quite simply a backpack that can be transformed into a chair. It's not necessarily the type of backpack I'd wear for heavy off road riding but more to and from a campsite and/or rally. I used it at Overland Expo and found it extremely handy as the campground was a half mile from the exhibit area and walking back and forth a few times at altitude will really wear you out! So I was able to take my water, food, etc... with me as well as had a place to sit down during the day. I go to many hot springs and beaches too so it's a handy thing to have for occasions like that. It holds a hydration pack very well (suspended inside) with a hole to feed the drink tube. It has plenty of outside pockets as well as a top zipper compartment that also has a rain-proof cover should you need it. Overall, I think it's a well designed product made from tough, high quality materials. I got a lot of questions from people who saw it so I think TrailForm is onto something here.

    2019 KTM 790 Adventure

    Been hearing a lot of good things about the 790 lately from friends: “I don’t want to sound too excited but it’s everything I expected and then some. It feels like a big dirt bike, not so much a off-road street bike. Suspension is killer. Never did I feel a harsh bottom out. We averaged 54 mpg on the 650 miles we did. So range is really good. The electronics package has some cool options in Rally mode. We had 6 790’s on the trip, no issues.” “Only negative I can possible think of is that it wants to cruise at 75 on the highway (not really for me though as I hate the highway anyway and I’d be better off not getting tickets). It’s definitely set up to be a dirt bike. It’s smaller than the 1090, you would probably want to get a tall seat for sure and raise the bars.”

    The Touratech Shock is a rebranded Tractive shock. There are some well known issues with it. In fact Konflict no longer carries the line and does not recommend using it anymore. I had the Tractive/Touratech shock too and while super plush in the first 3/4 of the stroke I felt it let go in the last inch of travel and bottomed out hard instead of getting stiffer as a true PDS shock should.

    I love my 710 offroad and am sure it's a better dirtbike than the 790.

    • This mirror is the product of much frustration- I spent years breaking other designs and wondering what was going on behind me on the road. Eventually, when I dropped my bike and found myself buying two(!) new master cylinders as a result, I decided it was time to make a really good mirror, one that would function well as a mirror, and also protect the bike (and me) from damage.

    • Time, 05:15 h. My alarm clock rings and it’s time for me to get my breakfast in my stomach, take a shower and jump on my bike! The 1,5 hour drive to the TT race track in Assen took me to the TT junior track and the CRT Holland training ground for the CRE track training. Here I met with 37 fellow Suzuki riders. Greeting us where the men and women from Suzuki Motors Holland who set up this training day.
