The Bike

KTM 690 Enduro R from year 2009. I know every one says that KTM is not too reliable and you need to fix it more than ride, but when I was testing different bikes it was quite soon the one that was best for me. 

I tested Yamaha XT660 and MT 9 Tracer. Here XT was bit bad shape and was not causing any “hurrah.” shouts. MT 9 Tracer was totally different beast and I can imagine how good it is when driving long distances.  One of the biggest issue for me personally was that I know myself and it could be the case that I would have been speeding with it as it was so good in tarmac.

I Also tested KTM 390 Adventure, but it feels like it was missing some power that would make you grin inside of your helmet when turning throttle.
