In early July 2017 we went for a ride through Italian Alps. Only road riding. Four days of riding through the Alps, many passes and approx. 1000 km of twisties. Weather was great and bikes were flawless. Here are some impressions about Mosko Moto Scout 25 duffle bag and Moto Skiveez Adventure undergarment I used on this trip.
I installed steering stabilizer on my 2016. KTM 690 Enduro for two reasons. First, I liked an idea of stabilizer support during fast rides over rocky terrain. Next, I always felt front of 690 is 'too light' on pavement, with off-road tires on. higher bars were added benefit.
There is a lot of information on the "tank bolt" issue on KTM 690 Enduro and younger Husqvarna 701 Enduro, but most of it is scattered over internet. Also, some things changed during the years, so I decided to summarize all info.
After few consecutive days of milling aluminum for 10-12 hours a day, it was time for short break - Fruska gora, Serbia. Two KTM 690 Enduro R's, 2008. and 2016. A bit less than 300 km's mostly paved roads.
