Oh Boy! Stopped in Eurosport Asheville yesterday to check out the latest from BMW and KTM. As I was drooling over the new 1190 Adventure John Hendrickson pretty much forced me to take a test ride, well, not really forced!
This has to be one of the easiest large ADV bikes to ride, at around 460 lbs, and with more power than anyone needs, I have to say it was an absolute blast. My 15 minute ride lasted close to an hour, as I got lost, I always get lost around Asheville. I couldn’t find anything not to like about this bike, the controls, suspension, tranny, the engine, Ahh the engine, all worked better than I could ever imagine.
I have a feeling we’re going to have to find a spot in the shop for this bike soon!
