    I'm shocked, but it'd be a hell of an expense setting up a busines to produce a single tyre :-)

    I didn't fancy trying their Adventure GPS as it's too road orientated for what I wanted and the Tractinator Desert H/T might not have lasted riding down to Italy and back so I can't comment on them. If I'm doing a longer trip of a month plus I don't mind changing tyres part way through but for a 2 week/3,000 mile trip I'd rather have a tyre that lasts. Just trying to help rodooo. BTW I was given the Anakee Wilds to try.

    Yup,much better for me,especially standing on the pegs as I'm quite tall.

    I was going to move them to the forward of the 3 positions but the thread is a bit dodgy so will get the dealer to sort at first service.

    2018 KTM 790 Adventure

    So I took the 790R back to the dealer today to have the heated grips fitted ( they’d forgotten to fit them when I originally went to collect it), the software update so that the fuel gauge works and a bolt to be fitted where I’d spotted a bolt was missing.

    4hrs later and the mechanics computer is stay being told by the bike and KTM he’s not authorised to access the software.

    They can’t fix it until KTM Austria can go online connect with the bike and install it.

    Do I need to take WiFi, a mechanic with engineers laptop away with me to Iceland ? Is this normal for KTM ?

    Left the bike with them to fix it and borrowed a 1290s until they return my bike. Blimey they are fast.

    I watched it almost frame by frame and the height he/she gets is amazing but when the bike comes down rear and then front suspension seems to compress and then rebound to about full extensionbut you can immediately see the dust being kicked up by the drive from the rear wheel so I don’t see how it can bounce a foot off the deck ?

    I saw underneath the part marked GPS, it like that the small plastic square is a blanking plate. When removed there are the screw / holes that held the blank in place .
