Replacing the tried-and-true 990 Adventure, KTM’s new 1190 is a 150hp, gravel-eating adventure motorcycle offering precise handling, class-leading braking, and a suspension capable of handling even the most extreme off-road conditions.

Whether you’re a total n00b or consider yourself an expert, these 11 tips for riding off-road should help make you faster and safer. Continue reading

As the world’s very first motorcycles, the 2014 KTM 1190 ADVENTURE and 1190 ADVENTURE R feature a truly revolutionary rider assistance system: the riding dynamics control MSC. This system makes a long held dream come true – an ABS that even works perfectly while cornering. Continue reading
Now I would like to see a V Strom 800 This 1000 looks sweet! Way to go Suzuki! I have a feeling this version will be considered the road 1000 with an ADV model to follow. Just my gut since the wheels on this bad boy or grrl are not spoked and smaller in size.
Essentially identical to the concept unveiled at Intermot last year, these first photos and complete details of the production 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS reveal a shockingly complete, high-spec, powerful, relatively light ADV bike.
The first generation V-Strom 1000 was launched back in 2002 and has remained in production since. Styling was never a strong point, but fitted with a version of the old Tl1000S’ powerful v-twin housed in an aluminum beam frame, performance definitely was. This new, 2014 V-Strom 1000 is fitted with a heavily modified version of that v-twin in a new, aluminum frame. And, for the first tim on a Suzuki, this V-Strom includes Traction Control.
Details Coming Soon!
AltRider introducing the upper crash bar for the 2013 F800GS? Pretty cool and if they are made as well as the bottom set up…then perhaps we might have to add them. I need all the protection I can get with this bike to be honest. It’s an investment we both made and if these uppers help why not? LOVE the look and we LOVE the dirt!
Look what our bikes can do…maybe not quite how we ride yet….;-)
We just got back on Thursday, August 28th from a 4 night mini-moon bike ride…it was amazing. Rode some back country roads we have never been on and the best part got to see yet another part of our beautiful Province. Weather was OK for the most part until the last 2 days. It rained on us riding back to Pemberton via the Highline and then it POURED on us heading home. No biggie we always stay dry wearing our KLIM Traverse gear. We started out on the Sea to Sky Highway the 99. Can’t get much closer to the water when you ride this route.
It’s a scenic drive and for those who are not from here this road takes you to Whistler the home of the Winter 2010 Olympics. Continue reading
Just playing around with iMovie…fun little trailer
I have not gotten around to even posting our highlights from our wedding. Perhaps a little overwhelmed with all the pics and the event itself. Wedding was great and a post will come soon. Right now we are on a mini-moon, not our honeymoon bike trip. We are out and about in our own “backyard” of BC exploring. Heading up the Hurley Forest road to check out the Tyax Wilderness Lodge in the middle of nowhere.
We have 3 nights starting Sunday to get away on the bikes. Where should we go? Been everywhere both in the states and BC but we want some dirt and then a place to relax.
UPDATE: We are going here
