    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    They have three different models - Three KTM 1290 Super Adventure Models Announced for 2017 - ADV Pulse

    All with the ridiculous 1301cc engine, one of which is advertised as “The new KTM 1290 Super Adventure R (R=Off-Road) is the more dirt-focused derivative with bigger wheels, more suspension travel, shorter windscreen and additional crash protection” – but with road tires as standard. This is presumably an acknowledgement that knobblies tend to self-destruct at around 80mph, but with that 1301cc motor, you’ll be doing way more than that on the dirt anyway.

    Options for names include “Clock Work Orange” – “The Flying Goose” – but in reality, the name “The Waddling Duck” would be more appropriate.

    If you need to get to somewhere 2000 miles away in a hurry, frankly you could do better – and I’d put any of these bikes up against a TW off road any day ……

    Anymore, just getting on my KLR is an adventure! When I swing my leg over it, I usually kick the turn signal. Cured that by getting on it like a horse, foot in the stirrup, jump up little, swing the other leg over. When I bought the KLR, I was 20 yrs. younger. I must have been a little taller too.

    Nah. You probably just put more air in the tires these days

    According to the weight chart in the Dr's. office, I've gotten taller. You're right, it must be tire over-inflation.

    The first clause of the second sentence...lol. And I couldn't agree more! There's a guy at my college who gets there when I'm leaving - rides an RC390. It's a nice looking bike and the engine sounds good.

    Saw one of the 2016 versions at Apex motorsports while picking up a bunch of extra oil for my kickstarter install. Can be yours for only $18,600 dollars before tax, etc. Thing was MASSIVE. Have no idea how people use those things off road at all. Definitely would not want one. Heck, one could buy 3 new TW's and 1 used for that price!
