KTM 790R first fling
« on: March 21, 2020, 04:59:43 pm »
Headed out to long Toms pass on Friday. Got back earlier. Stayed over at hops hollow lodge. Probably 60% dirt via loskop, dulllstroom, rail road from walkersons, lydenburg , hops hollow. Hops hollow through the forests, sodwala caves, Belfast, middelburg, then slabbed it home

What an amazing motorcycle, super chuffed with my decision. Little tank slappers which lowers the confidence, will fit a damper to raise the confidence whilst standing over 100kms, sitting down it perfectly balanced at speed on bumpy gravel.

Itís super comfortable over any surface, when it gets tougher itís comes into its own. Plenty power on tap, super duper suspension, and travels on tar very easily. If anyone is considering, you wonít be left disappointed.

Cool pics.
I must agree. I loved my SE but it was horrible on tar, the 790 is still a lot of fun on tar and really comes alive on the dirt
