“You are positively mad!” was the conclusion of one of our fellows as we told him what we had in mind.

(This is a part of the story other individuals – not riding a motorcycle – cannot transfer). So we had to investigate what would be suitable for trips like that. KTM350: to small tank. R1200GS ADV: to heavy. Wait for the KTM790 Adventure: Expected light – but after presentation at the Eicma: even to heavy.
100% clear: WE NEED NEW LIGHTWEIGHT BIKES WITH MORE THAN 600km RANGE!!!
