One of the great things about ADV riding is that there are so many options out there. There's a huge range of ADV Motorcycles and you could theoretically take any one of them around the world
Of course some bikes will do some things better than others. The Multistrada is primarily built to be ridden on the road, let's be honest. A monster motor and 17" wheels, it carves the canyons like a superbike. From the factory, it's probably good for 95% road and 5% offroad.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, is this KTM 690. I think this bike is 5% road and 95% offroad. It weighs half as much as the Ducati! It makes riding in the dirt a pleasure. And of course, make picking it up a lot easier.
Hope to use this new tool to sharpen up the offroad skills. Stay tuned for more mods and updates coming soon.
Still shiny in the dealer lot...
