50 and still playing in the dirt.
Status updates on the new/used toy. I am going to document how a 50+ year old finally learns to ride in the dirt on a big bore ADV bike.
Here is the 2010 KTM 990 ADV that will be my project bike. Having been to a couple of large ADV rallies, Eric Hall has been a great source of information on large bikes and using them in the dirt. https://xladv.com/
First on the list is an upgraded skid plate. I opted for the Black Dog Cycle Werks version. I had one on my GS1200ADV and it looked bullet proof. The one I just picked up for the KTM is built the same, yet looks even tougher, if there is such a thing.
Next stop is Rottweiler Performance in Costa Mesa. http://www.rottweilerperformance.com/
I will update this later with the parts I decide to get.
