    Bike rental in Chicago

    Eagle rider is the only rental i know of. I have rented a 1200GS from them before with full hard bags.
  2. See if it can survive being mounted to your bike for a full day off road.

    Im not much of a highway long distance rider. Is it light enough to be on a hitch mount behind my FJCruiser?

    Im going to explore the 690, 701 and 790. Who knows when I will see a Tenere 700 so its not on my list. Funny thing, I found a 2016 KTM 1190 Adv R new at a dealer in El Cajon. Least its on their website.

    Whats neat about Gieco online claim is there is no essay question. Just a select box on what happened. If its not listed there, then I guess you need to call them and talk to someone.

    Clicked the box that said "Pot Hole". It was the truth. I hit that damn giant pot hole at the Mohave ride that was right next to the cattle guard. Probably doing 50mph.

    I hope this helps anyone else in this jam. My insurance company paid out more than I paid for my KTM. Like a 100 dollars more. Gieco does not have a database on KTM. So they needed to shop out fair market value. Make sure you tell the adjuster of ever modification, I believed it helped with mine and they took it in consideration. At first estimate, Gieco wanted to fix the bike. After I took it to a KTM dealer, they found an additional 1500 in damages to push the repair over the threshold. I was tore between fixing and total loss. On one hand if it was repaired I was going to get some better stuff like a Woodys front wheel, possibly a 2016 year frame, new seat, and have money for new tires and such. On the other hand I wondered if I would just have more trouble and wind up breaking the bike again, or have trouble selling it. I had a love hate with that bike. Loved riding it, but its left me broken twice now. So ultimately its time for it to retire. I hope Gieco doesn't lose the key...i still have the orange one.

    T 700 Review from Brake Magazine

    It looks like the front fender height can be adjusted a little. He makes sound likes the bike is just meh. Seems to get good wheel loft without much effort though. Comes in at about $11k US. So its just a bit more than a CRF450L. It seems like a bike alot of us would like to have. No more going through endless menus every ride to turn off TC, ABS, Off Road mode, etc. Push a button, ABS off, and now we have a 700cc semi dirt bike. https://www.yamahamotorsports.com/adventure-touring/models/tenere-700 SPECIFICATIONS: Engine Type 689cc liquid-cooled DOHC 4-stroke; 8 valves Bore x Stroke 80.0mm x 68.6mm Compression Ratio 11.5:1 Fuel Delivery Fuel Injection Transmission 6-speed; wet multiplate clutch Final Drive Chain Suspension / Front 43mm inverted fork, fully-adjustable; 8.3-in travel Suspension / Rear Single shock, adjustable preload (w/remote adjuster) and rebound damping; 7.9-in travel Brakes / Front Dual 282mm hydraulic disc; selectable ABS Brakes / Rear 245mm hydraulic disc; selectable ABS Tires / Front 90/90R21 Pirelli® Scorpion® Rally STR Tires / Rear 150/70R18 Pirelli® Scorpion® Rally STR L x W x H TBD Seat Height 34.6 in Wheelbase 62.6 in Rake (Caster Angle) TBD Trail TBD Maximum Ground Clearance 9.5 in Fuel Capacity 4.2 gal Fuel Economy** TBD Wet Weight*** TBD Warranty 1 Year (Limited Factory Warranty) Color Ceramic Ice
