Ktm 690r Husky 701

A word on reliability. My 2012 690 is just about to clock up 59k km. Fuel pump failed at 6500km. Replaced with a CA Cycleworks one. Exhaust valve rocker failed at 25k km. Replaced both rockers.

Re: The TAT

The TAT is a great experience, nothing overly technical, but it can get very muddy in Mississippi/Arkansas/Oklahoma and Nevada has lots of fesh-fesh and rocks, lots and lots and lots of rocks. Its the journey as a whole that makes it 'epic' as our 'Merican cousins would say. I did it last year, star...
