How did you word it to the insurance to file the claim?

 

I've been told it has to be an accident/impact event, not a manufacturing failure or they will not cover it.

 

Thx, Dan

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 “accidentally” launched over this cattle guard and “impacted” into a giant pothole on the other side

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.

Glad it's being resolved, too bad it's a total loss, but sometimes it's better to move forward.

Now the important question of what's next??? 790R, Tenere 700, another big KTM or???

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.

Thing is you do not want an 1190. It has to be a 1090 or 1290 because of the PDS Shock. The 1190 is NOT PDS and the Tractive Shock might be a culprit also.

I enjoy my 701, but it's not the greatest highway bike. Done a few 200 mile days on it with no mechanical issues, but kinda hard on the bum 20190119_090818.jpg

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

I had a Tourtech extreme suspension done by Konflict.  =(

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.

Bummer, any big hits or crashes?

 

Looks like you had a bit too much fun at the High Sierras Rally.

 

Have you tried running it by KTM?

 

Best of luck.

I’m going to my insurance company rather than KTM. I hate dealing with their customer service, and I’m also way out of warranty. Sadly the motorcycle only has 8000 miles, but I've really trashed this thing. I need a 790.
