    I've been riding this exquisite bike since 2015. I came to it from a Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200 and a DRZ400S (which I still own as a backup for buddies who want to ride with me, but are "bike-orphaned"). The 690 Enduro is the perfect compromise between the weight benefits of the DRZ and the power of the Tenere. I can't sing the 690's praise enough. It is a blast to cruise down the freeway at a steady 80 mph, or drift through the Santa Monica mountain twisties, or goat-whip it up some gnarly trail at Big Bear or Cleveland national forest. Don't listen to those who say it can't keep up with the heavyweights on long-distance rides. It most certainly can, especially with the right aftermarket seat or - even better - an Airhawk seat pad stretched over the Sweet Cheeks bottle carrier (increases fuel capacity by a couple of liters). The bike's only drawback is that it is not ideal for tight single-tracks which involved sharp, rising switchbacks, due to its relatively ungenerous turning angle. Apart from that, it is a far less stressful bike to take into difficult terrain than the 500 lb adventure machines we love on the freeways. With only 320 lbs to cart around, it is quite nimble. The torque is ridiculously neck-snapping and always induces an insane grin in city riding and on steep, rocky hills. I keep thinking I should get a 240 lb exc, but I'm lazy and useless with tools, so the incredibly low-maintenance schedules keep me on this reliable beast's haunches. The only thing that might get me to trade it in is the forthcoming 790 middleweight from KTM or the T7 under development from Yamaha. I don't ever see myself going back to a 500 lb+ bike... the bulk and limitations of those behemoths just isn't worth tolerating when you can ride a thoroughbred stallion, drop it a dozen times while riding solo and never worry about picking it up, or having it fall on you in a ditch.
  2. I have a very nice 1190adv r for sake with full toyratech accessories. It is on Craigslist, and located in Nashville. If you are interested message me a number or email and I can send a video. $13,500. I’d take partial trades on vintage Bmw, Honda’s, or Harley’s. Also would consider a husky 591 or ktm 500 dual sports with titles. Thanks.
  3. You can FF past the segments that are not ADV bike centric (ADV is around the 20 min. mark) Here's a pic of the 790 reveal:
  4. Hey long time lurker here but I thought I would start a thread about the new KTM 1090 build that I am doing for KTM Twins. For reference this is the last bike that I built: KTM Twins Ultimate 690 Since taking delivery of the bike last month I have made these upgrades: -KTM Touring windscreen -KTM heated grips -KTM GPS mount -KTM Luggage Racks -Double Take Adventure Mirrors -FasstCo Impact foot pegs -Vanasche Motorsports side stand foot -Kriega OS panniers This stuff was basically just the tip of the iceberg to get me through the break in period, this winter she will be going through a full transformation: Suspension, Performance, Ergonomics and general "Adventurizing". I will update this thread as things progress and try to answer any questions/comments along the way.
  5. Harley and dirt bike rider who is new to the ADV world. Bought a 2017 1090 KTM to ride from my home in Montana to Alaska in the early summer of 2018. Excited for the adventure.
  6. I installed these today...
  7. t’s been eight long years since the KTM 640 Adventure last appeared on showroom floors. Since 1998, the 640 Adventure was beloved for its light weight, 300+ mile fuel range and long-travel suspension that made it a highly capable long-distance off-road travel machine. There was much to love about the... http://www.advpulse.com/adv-bikes/spy-photos-ktm-690-adventure/
  8. Losing your keys is never a fun experience. Being without transportation is a huge problem if you're a round-the-world adventure rider or even just a commuter or weekend warrior (like me). I actually did lose my key sometime back in November or early December and it's been a real nightmare. My hope is that you can learn from my experience. I'm also hoping KTM will re-examine their process for replacing keys as a result of this. The last time I used my bike was to ride to Marina Del Rey. I went to the gas station to gas up and found my rear tire was flat! I went back to the house and parked the bike in the garage and then put my gear back in the house before going back out to get in the car and drive to Marina Del Rey. Thierry (of OAA) came down in December from Calgary to escape the cold and go riding with me so it was that day, Saturday, December 7th I first realized it was gone. I turned the place upside down looking for that damn key but couldn't find it! I think what most likely happened was I had the motorcycle key in my left pocket and also put my car keys in there. When I pulled my car keys out, I think the motorcycle key probably got tangled up in them and then fell to the ground to be lost forever. I thought this from the start and that gained credibility as the same thing happened with another set of keys I had with my house key and garage key on them that were lost in the parking lot at Costco! So on Monday Dec 9 I called a local KTM dealer and told them I'd lost my key and would have to order another one. I was told $60 but it ended up being $80. I said that I had nothing; no extra keys, no "orange" key or anything. I'd purchased the bike from a guy who bought it at an auction and it only came with the one key and not the original orange key. They put in the order for what ended up taking six weeks to deliver! I got the key (finally) just this past Tuesday (Jan 24) and it did fit in the ignition and did turn the bike on but the bike is now immobilized! Turns out, I need the original orange key that came with the bike to program the bike's immobilizer to accept this new key! I told the dealer this up front and they should have figured out ordering the key wasn't going to get my bike started but they don't order keys that often and didn't know. Might KTM have asked them to verify this up front rather than assume I had the original orange key? Perhaps. So apparently KTM can't just send me another orange key. And apparently the dealer can't just plug my bike into a computer and program this new key to work. They told me that I have to pay another $451 to have another immobilizer with a new orange key and that it would take another three weeks! As you can imagine, my patience with KTM has run out so I'm taking the advice of another rider, Adrian Sanchez of Portland, OR, who used SOS Diagnostics to help him get his Ducati started after losing his key. SOS has a perfect 5.0 star rating with Google Reviews (24 reviews) and 4.9 stars for 8 reviews on Facebook and I'm confident they can get this resolved much quicker and for less money. I'll keep you updated on the results. Lessons learned? What would you do differently after hearing about this lost key business? I know I'll certainly be more careful with my keys in the future but I may also zip tie a spare key to the bike in some deep and hidden recess of the bike in case this happens again. I'd also hope that KTM will take a look at their internal process and make improvements as this seems like one of those "Charley & Ewan moments" where people are going to think twice about which bike they choose to take them around the world if it means being stuck somewhere for six weeks while they wait for a key to be delivered. BMW takes 2-3 days as does my own car maker, Acura. Six weeks seems like kind of a joke, really. I'm told the newer KTM's have different systems and it may not take that long but that's certainly the case for the 990's (right now).

  22. Since we've started this project bike, the most frequent question I've been getting is "so how do you like the 990 vs the GSA?" I can tell you it's been a lot of fun! I really like what is obviously better off-road handling and the highway comfort is not as bad as I expected (my Seat Concepts seat sure helps!). While I love my GSA too, I can't say that I'm missing it that much yet. There are a few interesting surprises though that I didn't expect. For example, I thought the 990 was like 100 lbs lighter or something but the specs show the dry weight is just 32 lbs lighter! Also, the 990 has loads more travel, right? Nope. Only with the 990 (R spec suspension from Konflict) has front/rear travel of 248mm/248mm vs the GSA's 210mm/220mm! My stock 990 Adventure came with 210mm/210mm; about the same as the GSA (less in the rear). The center of gravity is also much higher and that, combined with less front end feel (suspension is so good), and you'd best be light on that front brake or you're going to low-side really damn fast! Ask me how I know! The gearing is also taller than the GSA's legendary tractor gearing, but that's easily addressed with larger rear and smaller front sprockets. Bottom line: Much better in the dirt and not as bad on the highway as expected. Pro's: Lots more off-road fun, feels more powerful, nimble, suspension doesn't bottom out (my TFX Suspension on the GSA doesn't either anymore) Con's: Really tall, taller center of gravity, taller gearing, sucks gas big time when you're on the throttle. * I should note here that this switch was due to type of riding I like most. I was looking for something not similar to the GSA but 21/18" wheels, more travel and more dirt-able. The 990 has not fallen short of my expectations, I can assure you.
