I went last year for the first time and it was a lot of fun. There is a lot of great riding over there and camping and partying with hundreds of other ADV enthusiasts is a blast. There are many vendors with all kinds of cool products from little gizmos to whole motorcycles you can try out. There are some great learning opportunities with Jimmy Lewis, Dirt First, and PSSOR doing classes. There is a huge tent area for those riding in, but also an RV area if you want to trailer in too. They offer guided tours for any skill level, or you can just make up your own using the supplied GPS maps. There is food, beer, and gas available right across the street, but those great vendors usually have a keg flowing in the evening. Last year there were about 800 people making it the largest ADV rally in the US, I believe. This year they are going to actually limit attendance to about 1000 and early bird tickets sales end in February, so don't delay. https://www.touratechrally.com/

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.

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:
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.
