Our Italian friend Michele from Tuttoendurowill organize guided tour through Balkans in June 2016th. He did reconnaissance trip alone, in very tough conditions.
He rode his KTM 690 Enduro R, modified to endure rides like this one. Michele use Perun moto KTM 690 Enduro Heel guards to secure Altrider Hemisphere Saddlebag. This luggage setup proved to be very durable and reliable.
More details about Michele's trip can be found on his Facebook page.
Michele published few interesting videos about his ride.
Perun moto 790/890 Luggage rails were designed as a platform for small bags or Tool tubes. In several months of use, some bags proved to work great – Kriega US-5 Drypack, Mosko moto Fatty Tool roll and 4l Drybag. Standard size Tool tube proved to work great too.
KTM 690 Enduro R is redesigned in 2019. Tail section of the new model is different than on previous models and it is much more suitable for rack-less luggage. New Mosko moto Reckless 80 "Revolver" (or simply "V3.0") is a great choice for 690 Enduro.
