    Yellowstone – Season 5

    As it is TonisToo’s ride report, I will leave it to him to finish this excellent documentary, but I can report that we successfully completed our 5,000+ miles Adventure last Saturday afternoon... Amazingly, we did not get more than a brief sprinkle of rain during the whole time we were on the...

    Yellowstone – Season 5

    I agree that it's a "no brainer" to visit spots like those you mentioned. That's why I also try to pick lesser known spots like the Salmon River Scenic Parkway as well.

    Yellowstone – Season 5

    Tony and I have been methodically working our way around the U.S. Once we agree on a general area, I get to work on an itinerary based on my prior trips, trying to maximize Tony's exposure to the high points of the chosen area. It sometimes means some long days in the saddle, but by the end of...

    Yellowstone – Season 5

    And not even a glimpse of Smokey the Bear, either. Today it was 31 degrees F. as we rode through Yellowstone one last time befor heading West into Montana, and then Idaho. We entered Idaho at the intersection of MT43 and US93 at the crest of the Lost Trail Pass, one of my favorites in the U.S...

    Yellowstone – Season 5

    Taking advantage of the WiFi in Jackson Hole Wyoming for an update. It was a chilly 33 degrees F. when we rolled out of the tents this morning in Grand Tetons National Park. I have been to Yellowstone National Park so many times that I thought that Tony would be better off if he spent the day in...

    Yellowstone – Season 5

    So, our big Adventure almost sputtered right from the start. There were only five customs agents working at the airport in Montreal this morning. I didn't know he had in it him, but it sounds like TonisToo had to shoulder a few little old ladies out of his way in order to get to the gate just as...

    That's an excellent plan, my friend, but hopefully we can keep our Interstates exposure to the first couple days...

    Yellowstone – Season 5

    This is the second motorcycle I've had a Russell Saddle on. As good as off the shelf Sargent Saddles are, nothing beats having one made specifically to your dimensions.

    There will be a break in updates on the 390 Adventure while it takes a break over the next couple weeks, due to no fault of its own!

    Yellowstone – Season 5

    HaHaHa! Maybe two weeks ago! For those who are wondering why the Trophy instead of the GSA, it comes down to a simple matter of the scheduled maintenance for each. The GSA is due for a Service in 2,000 miles, and the Trophy in 5,450. Given that this Adventure is likely to accumulate around 5,000...

    You should have looked closer at that photo, my friend! I would never presume to take your beloved GS to a State you haven't already been in with it! ;)

    That’s me. A wimp who has accumulated over 20,000 miles on my motorcycles so far this year... ;)

    Who knows Mike, maybe I will be able to join you on that trip next year, schedules allowing. I’m a dues paying member of the KTM Club now, after all!

    Yellowstone – Season 5

    Delivering your Triple Black GS to Minnesota saved us from having to double back to our house to collect it, so in addition to getting you caught up on maintenance, it will save us about seven hours on getaway day. Plus it allowed me to get my first included annual Service on our X3 in...

    The 2021 KTM 390 Adventure Accessories Thread

    I am actually coming to believe that the newer computer controlled motorcycles are actually much easier to work on, and this cruise control installation is a perfect example. I installed an MC Cruise on the BMW F700GS I Owned, and because it had a conventional cable operated throttle, the...

    The 2021 KTM 390 Adventure Accessories Thread

    Funny that you mentioned that. I have heard nothing but good things about those mirrors, but in keeping with my desire to (somewhat) control costs, I opted for the KTM 690 mirrors at a fraction of the cost. I guess time will tell if it was a wise decision...

    The 2021 KTM 390 Adventure Accessories Thread

    The BMW Engineers were asked why the switches aren’t backlit on the GS, and the response was that they felt that everyone should be able to operate the controls by muscle memory, without taking their eyes off the road. In my personal experience, the nifty BMW “Wonder Wheel” that controls most of...

    The 2021 KTM 390 Adventure Accessories Thread

    I had read about a couple folks snapping off their mirror mounts, which are part of the brake and clutch assemblies, after simple get-offs, due to the fact that the OEM Mirrors are wider than the handlebars. I ordered a set of KTM 690 mirrors to remedy that potential costly occurrence. I had...

    I actually had one until the shaft snapped trying to reach that goofy, wedged screw! :mad::p
