KTM hit the adventure bike market hard in 2013 with the release of the 1190 Adventure, their crosshairs aimed directly at the large displacement ADV bikes such as the Ducati Multistrada and the BMW R1200GS. Now, after just a few years in production, KTM has decided to go a different route. The 1190 is not being offered for the 2017 model year, instead, it’s been replaced by two separate models, the 1090 Adventure, and the mighty 1290 Adventure.
The seventh annual Kenda Tennessee Knock Out Hard Enduro is, as you’d expect from a Hard Enduro, an utterly grueling test of man and machine that takes place at the Trials Training Center in Sequatchie, TN.
One of the most frequently asked questions by new off road riders is “should I stand, or should I sit?” Whether you are a brand new rider learning in the dirt, or a seasoned street rider learning to ride off-road, one of the most important things you should learn and practice is standing while riding.
Usually, the KTM and I prefer to stay on gravel roads or trails but occasionally I throw on some street tires and tear up the twisties for a few days. However, we generally still manage to find ourselves on a gravel road!
My wife, Marisa, and I arrive at the shop early to get our bikes packed and ready, eager to get our ride underway. I would be riding a Triumph Tiger 800XC and Marisa would on a BMW F-800GS. The group got a briefing from Court on the route and Ecuadorian road etiquette, and we set off into the chaotic Quito traffic.

Basically everything has been done to it. Title says 400exc but recent top end rebuild puts it at 453cc. This short stroke, large bore set-up gives it great power delivery.
Rebuild was done this spring and currently has 45 hours on it. Bike has a total of 178 hours.
