Re: TUTORO Chain Oiler

Three of my bikes have ScottOilers they work perfectly

One bike has a Tutoro in 2.5 years I have yet to get it set up to work properly, either too much oil or no oil no inbetween

IMO its a POS waste of money - if you want an automatic chain oiler get the ScottOiler

Re: BMW GS vs KTM Adventure 2014+

I used to have a 2008 BMW R1200 GS. The best day of my biking life was the day I sold it in 2010, At the time I sold it to buy the SMT, but i now also own a KTM 1190 Adv, bought in April 2013 and IMO, depending on what your intended use of the bike is, the BMW will never on its best day be a match f...

Re: 1050 adventure

Its putting out less power than the old 990 Adv :o and its heavier too
And it has cast wheels 19" front and 17" rear
So its probably not intended as an Adventure bike

UK Model SMT's

Some advice. I am looking at buying a used SMT and parking it in Europe to be used on our annual trips to ride around europe, as the money spent to date on bike hire could have bought a good used bike. The plan is to buy a bike park it up for 11months of the year, then insure for 1 month ride around...

Another luggage option to consider if you dont want to go the hard luggage route is the Kriega system I used a set on our circum-navigation of Zimbabwe last year, in conjunction with a set of Oxfords, they strap on ultra securely and do not hang off the side of the bike the best option would be 2 x ...

The current rumour mill is that KTM austria is about to release a new airbox and there will be a recall At least the 1190 dont get tank slappers (new GS120...
