This is a really good video showing 2 riders who are just regular guys enjoying a Yamaha Super Tenere and a KTM 990. Wes is funny about riding the Yamaha off road. This is really worth watching the entire video….one of the better one’s out there I think because they actually show a dump and accident. Real stuff. Enjoy.
Both Yamaha and KTM have dominated the legendary Dakar races for decades. Wes and Grant do their best not to fly off a ridge while taking the KTM 990 Adventure and Yamaha Super Ténéré deep into the Angeles National Forest’s system of fire roads, trails and creeks.

Just a quick post after receiving many private messages and emails asking if we would have taken our 2010 BMW F650GS bikes on the same trip we did on the Triumph Tiger 800′s last summer. Our answer is YES…totally. Our Beemers would have easily made the trip through BC, the Yukon and Alaska. We would have never have thought twice about riding up there with our own bikes. I was asked then ‘why didn’t you ride your own bikes?” Hmmmmmmmmmmm…..the answer is simple…Triumph gave us two new adventure bikes to ride on a very long demo…why would we NOT ride Triumph’s bikes, put the mileage on them and get to test ride another model? Not sure why I was asked that question but if any other company came to us and said “hey, you want to take our bikes for a ride?” I would answer yes yet again.
The Triumph Tiger 800XC with the Triumph gel seat no doubt is more comfortable on the street and more comfortable in general riding long distances in the saddle. Having said that anyone who might be looking to buy either the F650GS, F800GS or the Triumph 800….you will love any of these bikes and they will take you as far as your imagination can go….so enjoy ADV riding…it’s the best way to LIVE!
This is a really good trailer to watch and see some of the back country of UTAH. Especially good for those who read this BLOG from outside North America. One thing missing from this video is a female ADV rider….HINT!!!!!! Love their KLIM suits, Touratech seems to be a sponsor of everything as well as KLIM. The KTM and BMW bikes look awesome….sure makes you want to ride!!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy!
Got this link from Pacific Motosports They are working on their new site….have look at their old site…this is our BMW dealer.
I really hope this is not a foreshadow of me, Leslie since I took this new job. Been two weeks now since I started and I feel like the guy in this video. I know things will get better as I start to grasp and get a hold of this crazy steep learning curve, but for now….this video has me thinking. If there are folks out there wanting to ride, think they can’t start later in life or young, have too demanding jobs, not enough time…..you need to watch this little “movie”. I am going to save this one for myself and also see how I am feeling a few months from now. Enjoy!
Today was motorcycle show day for us. Although the weather really smarten up and actually was pretty nice out we drove anyway because Cheryl is not feeling well. I think everyone in the lower mainland must have headed out to the show today because the temperature was above freezing and there was no snow coming down.
Great way to see parts of the world in only 4:50 secs! Beautiful editing!
17 Countries. 343 Days. 6237 Photographs. One incredible journey. Follow the adventure at http://kienlam.net/around-the-world and http://kienlam.net Continue reading

Triumph manufactured a lot of hype for the Tiger 800, so it was a real treat to discover the British mount lived up to expectations. Not just a shrunken version of its big brother Tiger, the 800 was a purpose-built Adventure bike. Triumph even obliged an off-road oriented version, the XC, which features wire-spoked wheels and is easily the most dirt-capable Trumpet produced by the modern Hinkley company.
You be the judge….is this a good review of the three BIG ADV bikes out there? No Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200? I guess we will have to wait for that review later.
Really liking this bike! Cheryl always loved the retro looks but not me. Recently though they are growing on me and might have to take one out for a ride! Get rid of the dual seat, add a skid plate and some other Farkles and perhaps a very cool DS bike…..not expensive!
