Re: Tiger 1050 vs crosstourer 1200 vs v Strom

Re: Tiger 1050 vs crosstourer 1200 vs v Strom

Hi Will. I'd have a close look at these machines; KTM 990 SM-T (115bhp), or the KTM 1090 Adventure (125bhp). I would suggest you try get a long test-ride to try them out if you can locally. I've been riding a first generation V-Strom DL1000 since 2008, as much as I like that bike if I was pushed to ...

Re: Go Big and Ride Small

Looks like I’m joining the small is fun club. Picked this up for £40, no spark, but I’ll have fun fixing it. wOOw you got an absolute bargain there for the money - so much enjoyment tinkering at them (as I've found out recently). Please keep us updated with your fixings... Is it a 70cc machine...? ...
