    Superb bike that does everything very well. Had this bike for 3 seasons and it was spectacular. Also, contrary to expectation, it has been PERFECTLY reliable. Perfectly, as in: I had NO issues. Zero. Nada.

    I've been riding for for about 28 years on many different genres of bikes - from dirt, to cruiser, to crotch rocket. I have to say, this bike is by far the best I have had the pleasure of owning and riding. It's versatility, quality, and capability coupled with it's reasonable price point make it a win win!

  5. The stock mirrors on my Tiger 800XC are great, but they don't fold on the trail and this is pretty much the #1 point of contact when riding bushy trails. So, I'd like to upgrade to some folding units. What is out there that is durable, easy to fold/unfold, and are solid enough to not vibrate on the highway, making them pretty much useless. The touratech units look nice: Any other brands that should be on my list of consideration?

    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. I had three goals for my design: 1. That it work as well as an OEM mirror for seeing what was going on behind. 2. That it would be indestructible. It would have to give way in a crash to avoid damage not only to the mirror, but also to the bike. 3. That it could fold completely out of the way, so that when I am offroad, I don't have to think about it. Many experiments later, the mirrors for sale here is the result. Both models hit all three marks right on the nose. We use SAE spec glass to give maximum visibility (it can be important to distinguish Crown Victoria headlights from other vehicles!), it is made right here in Colorado Springs from a super tough nylon that we are so certain will survive we offer a lifetime warranty (on the housing, not the glass, but you can buy the glass seperately), and sure enough, it folds right down when you want it gone. If you're deciding between the Adventure model, and the Enduro, our advice is simple. If you plan to fold the mirror down a large percentage of the time, the Enduro is right for you. The long size means the head of the mirror tucks away right behind the headlight. If the mirror will more or less remain extended, get the Adventure- the more compact design is more stable at highway speeds. Either way, you can't go wrong.

    Dual-tone air horn from Stebel of Italy available in Black or Chrome. Loud enough to convince other drivers that there's a derailed freight train barreling down on them. Don't press the horn button in the garage, it hurts! At 139dB it can be heard for almost 3 city blocks!

    Rick can size up your posture needs from a photo, but it was great having him do it in person at the rally. He snapped his own photos, made his own notes, and had the seat turned around in under two weeks when I sent it in at the end of summer. I can now ride on-road all day without being crippled at the end. I've heard mixed reviews on Rick, but I found him personable, though busy and direct, which is fine by me. http://www.rickmayercycle.com/prices.html

    Great ride. Had a 2012 road that I started with and upgraded when I found a deal on a used XC. Larger front wheel and better suspension were huge. That said, the the stock suspension sucks for someone bigger than average. With some upgrades it has been a great dual sport and tourer.
  12. Hi there folks, My name's Lorry Gombos and I'm the founder of Outback Motortek, manufacturer and distributor of adventure motorcycle products. Eric has kindly offered me to introduce my business to the XL ADV forum users and offline lurkers. It's hard to squeeze Outback Motortek's history into a short story but I'll try and tell you guys how I ended up taking on this tough venture in this very saturated market. No need to go too far back in the time when I first began riding and what kind of bikes I've owned etc..Fast forward that and I found myself living in Taiwan with my wife teaching English on the daily basis and riding around the island as much as 40K in 3 years. Not a big deal unless you only own a small 150cc scooter. But it doesn't matter what you ride but rather where and how you ride it. Again, fast forward time to December 2012 and I caught myself staring at an oversized, outdated (communist!) Asia map. By this time we had known that we would leave Taiwan for Canada very soon but before doing so I wanted to visit my family and friends in Hungary. So, I was calculating distances, sizing up deserts, considering road of bones and the Pamir highway and asked my wife " Do you want to ride to Europe instead of flying??". She said "How long would it take?" I couldn't believe my ears as I totally expected a "are you insane?" response...I replied "3 weeks if we ship our bike to Vladivostok, Russia". I know, I kinda lied but it was always my dream to cross the Asian continent way before Charlie and Ewan did. Of course, they re-inspired me! Fast forward the time again, I was deep into organizing what I thought was a simple task: purchase a bike that is reliable, can carry two people and luggage across Asia. Not so simple. Long story short, I ended up giving up riding from Vladivostok and even to ship my bike to Mongolia (logistics reasons made it impossible or too costly). I had to settle for Kyrgyzstan. Not a big loss, on the contrary! I got to spend more time exploring the Pamir Highway and its surroundings. I had to reach out to my family and friends in Hungary to buy me a decent motorcycle due the extremely high Taiwanese foreign vehicle import tax. My final choice - 2004 Suzuki Vstrom 650 - would have cost me $10,000.00 appr. in Taiwan, meanwhile in Europe one could get it for $3500-4500. Here comes the story of Outback Motortek before you think I'm writing a ride report The Vstrom, my best friend ended up buying for me only had a set of Givi bars to make it adventure (?) worthy. Lucky me, my father had owned a metal fabricating company for 30 years and had a great facility, engineers and a handful of skilled workers to tackle any metal related task. Let's just call the company by its name, G&T Manufacturing Inc. which mostly known in the medical devices business in Europe and is a major supplier for a Dutch company. My father's business outfitted my bike with all kinds of farkles, like aluminum panniers, center stand, upper crash bar, tool box etc. We still had no intentions of selling and manufacturing all these. I just wanted to get the job done and do the ride of my life. After finally riding out of the Kyrgyz customs and headed towards the Chinese border and later south towards Tajikistan and Afghanistan, we began meeting other explorers from Europe and Australia going the other direction. We always greeted each other, exchanged information but most conversations were about comparing farkles...Most of them noticed that our gear was well-made and somewhat unique looking and they were wondering what brand was it... Finally after nearly 8 weeks and 14000kms on the road we got to Hungary and I was ready to sell the bike and fly to Canada. We took off all the products my dad's business made and sold it online separate from the bike. In no time! I had to remove the ads later because the phone didn't stop ringing... Just then it hit me that maybe....Why not join this small but constantly growing market?! So, back to the title whether Outback Motortek is just another accessories manufacturer? It perhaps is but hopefully with our passion for adventure riding, a fully equipped facility and a dedicated and experienced team behind us, we will mean business for the major ADV/Dual-Sport motorcycle manufacturers in the near future. www.OutbackMotortek.com
  13. A very specific question: which stock seat is more low-seated, the 1190 R 1-pc rally or the 1190 2-pc touring? - There is no (clear) comparison of these 2 stock seats online. Dealers near me don't have a 1190 regular on their floor or a 2-pc stock seat for me to just go try on for comparison. As you may know, the 1190 R comes with the 1-piece rally seat (seat height 890mm), while the 1190 regular comes with the 2-piece touring (lower or higher position at 860mm or 875mm). - . My leg length is borderline for my 1190 R. Tippy-toeing is not safe for maneuvering slow uneven roads on a top heavy bike. And I do not want to do any lowering to compromise its suspension. Deciding which stock seat sits lower would give me clearer reference in choosing a lower aftermarket seat.

    The Camel Tank idea was conceived during my around the world motorcycle trip while I was riding through the deserts of Mongolia and Kazakhstan. Filling up with questionable looking gas out of pop bottles sold on the road side was less than ideal to say the least. My riding partners had bigger tanks or bikes that got much better fuel mileage. I was always the guy in the group that was low on fuel and it was frustrating and inconvenient. Enter Camel Tank! Easy to install, factory looking fit, and just fill with gas when you fill your main tank. Occupying the unused space between the rear tire and the pannier rack, the Camel Tank keeps the fuel weight low, balances out the weight of you exhaust systems on the opposite side and leaves your rear rack free for a duffle bag or top box. Add extra range to your KTM 1050/1090/1190/1290 ADV with the auxiliary gas tank from Camel Tank. Whether you need more fuel so you can iron-butt it to your next destination, explore a Backcountry Discovery Route, or simply want peace of mind knowing that you’ve got gas to spare, Camel Tank has you covered! CT-1X90 Fits With These Pannier Systems: No panniers*, Bumot, Touratech Zega panniers, SW Motech, KTM PowerParts(aluminum)**, and Holan*** Features: Holds 6 litres/1.5 gallons Fuel is automatically transfer from the auxiliary tank to the main tank Keeps fuel weight low and close to the bikes center line Leaves your rear rack free for a top box or duffle bag *We do not recommend use of soft bags without pannier racks. Unsupported soft bags can put a very large side load on the tank and brackets especially in the event of a bike drop on the left side. **KTM PowerParts racks require modification to clear tank ***Holan, spacers and longer bolts required

    SW-MOTECH 1 1/8" Barback Offset Handlebar Risers Provides a more upright, comfortable riding position by raising and retracting the original 1 1/8" (28mm) diameter handlebar. No need to replace your handlebars - simply remove the original top clamp, place the riser between the handlebar and original bottom clamp, and install the replacement top clamp using included hardware. Barbacks increase handlebar height by 30mm (1.18") and move them back 22mm (0.86"), producing an overall handlebar displacement of 35.4mm (1.4") at a 45 degree angle from the original position. When installed, there may be a slight gap between the bar riser and the top clamp. This gap allows the top clamps to be torque-tightened onto the bar riser to prevent the bar from spinning. Kit Includes: 30mm rise (1.18in) 22mm back (0.86in) Barbacks for 1 1/8" bars (1 pair) Top clamps for 1 1/8" bars (1 pair) Four M8x30 screws Four M8x20 screws SW-Motech 30mm handlebar risers.

    Set your Adventure 950 / 990 free from it's short leash. Introducing the 'Rottweiler Performance Endurocell' extended range fuel cell. Fitting perfectly in the exact same circular space the left hand muffler once occupied (see our single side out muffler options) guarantees that this fuel cell will not clash with your aftermarket pannier system. As an added bonus, the optional Quick Detach hardware kit will give your Endurcell the ability to be removed by hand in less than 10 seconds so its not hanging around when not needed or to help fill a buddy. NOTE: The Endurocell requires an SSO (Single Side Out) muffler system. This is a kit that converts your dual muffler system into a 'Y' pipe out the right hand side of the bike. If you do not already have one, see the options to add on below or see here. Rottweiler Performance fabricates hands down the absolute highest quality 'Y' pipe SSO systems available for the 950 / 990 KTM Adventure. Add 35-50 miles to your ride within a 10 second attachment. (With Quick Disconnect Kit) Two sizes available: 1 gallon (3.79L) or 1.3 gallon (4.92L) Made in the U.S.A. and beautifully ARC welded by hand by skilled craftsman. Easier than your stock fuel tank to fill. No tiny fuel caps in strange places. Stainless hardware Ties into your lower crossover fuel line with a check valve. No back flowing or messy fill ups. Everything you need to easily complete the installation included. Nothing left out. No removal of any main fuel tank. Just drop the skid pan, turn off the spigots on the stock tank and splice in the barbed 'T' fitting. Build your own Endurocell! Listed below are your options with explanation. Endurocell Capacity: Available in two sizes, 1 gallon (3.79L) or 1.3 gallon (4.92L). Choose between a smaller package, or a longer range. Quick Disconnect: Add a Quick Disconnect hardware kit to your Endurocell. Remove it when it's not needed in under 10 seconds, use it to help fuel a buddy, or leave it disconnected as a 'reserve capacity' tank for emergencies only. A billet fuel line stow perfectly holds the dry break fuel line clean of any dirt or debris when not in use. Fuel cap filter: Add a fuel filter at the cap to keep dirt or debris from entering the fuel tank. If you get dirty, you'll want this. Just pull it inside out and smack it around to clean it. BRP Fuel Cap: Your Endurocell comes with a perfectly good cap, but a beautiful BRP billet fuel cap adds that nice final touch that looks trick. Single Side Out Exhaust: Auxiliary fuel cells require the conversion to a single side out exhaust system. Rottweiler offers the finest range of SSO 'Y' pipes and mufflers. See here for more information. NOTE: The first run of Rottweiler Performance Endurocells are being fabricated on a limited first run basis. All sales are first come, first served. If you purchase an Endurocell after they have run out, you have the choice of being early in line for the second run or a full refund. Second run fabrication may be 2 to 3 weeks behind the last sold first run unit.

    The AltRider Side Stand Foot provides your bike with a larger footprint, so it can easily keep it from sinking into soft ground. Made from hefty 1/8 inch stainless steel, this foot features a 3D tread that echoes the aggressive AltRider Oil Cooler Guard design, while providing traction for your boots. It is the most ergonomic design on the market, allowing easy deployment of the side stand while still on the bike. The AltRider foot also clamps down on the actual foot of the side stand with Torx fasteners, which means the piece will remain tight even after months of use. No more rattling or stripped fasteners.
