Hi all,
another newby onboard, hope to chat with many of you and gleen more info about tuning/parts etc on my (new to me) 2014 1190 adventure...
Had hundreds of bikes over the years, usually inline jap fours...until i got a tdm 850 after a BIG accident on my zzr which stopped me riding sports bikes (riding position problems).
Really liked the old tdm but never had enough power, bought a race tuned, bored out tls ...which was fun but uncomfortable...
started thinking about a newer adventure style bikes but found them all underpowered/detuned :cry:
Thougt about putting the tl motor into the tdm ... lmao
Then found KTM 1190 adventures and test rode one....Perfect nutter bike !!! (or mile eater)
Went and bought a great example , cant fault it ( ...apart from obvious speedo issues etc ;)
Looking forward to having a laugh with you guys n gals

ps...looking for the left hand fairing panel for one of these (not dropped mine, picked up a right hand one and want to wrap a pair for daily use ...not bothered about scratches etc as long as its in one piece )

Welcome to the board mate, sounds like you found your perfect bike then.

Can't help with the side panel, but someone will be along in a bit no doubt.

Cheers bud..
I certainly hope so ..adding a few bits n pieces(spots,risers,upper crash bars..already had lowers..) as I get used to it.
Reading about some of the airbox,sas etc mods and considering them for later ... :D
(as and when funds allow ).
In the meantime, riding it like I stole it ;)

Hello all. Been a member here since 2011 but over in the SMT side. Since I use the T a lot more than the SM I went out and got an 1190 ADV.

Got a good deal on a very gently used 2014 model. Now I’ll be hanging out here with you lot.
