I was out for a ride Easter Sunday afternoon and I saw what looked like a pair of KTM 1290 SA in the parking lot of the Blue Mt Grill. In the back of my mind I wondered if one of those belonged to you.

Yep, that was us. My buddy bought one the same time I bought mine, and my grandkid bought his first street bike a Kawasaki Z800. That was us parked in the gravel! I have an 1190 ADV std also, didn't know the 1290 would be as impressive as it is AND it has elect cruise control! It's a BEAST!!

It's much more than fun.

It's also a badass bike for long range adventures.

As OP mentioned, it has cruise control.

Also has an 8 gallon tank, heated grips, heated seats (both rider and pillion), and is comfortable carrying luggage, 2 up or alone.

I've had my '15 for just about 2 years now and I've put almost 30K on it.

I sat on the 1290, it was hard to picture it in the tight stuff?
Are you guys mainly BDR fireroading your 1290s? Lets see some Gnar pics?
I have spent a bunch of time on 950s. a little time on a 1190.

Still looking for a SuperEndruro.. haha.

My 1290 is pretty decent in the corners I think, not SLOW that's for sure!! It's got pretty respectable acceleration also i think. not a ZX14, but it kicks it out with a great power band. (I had them put in an EXTRA LARGE power band)

A 1290 is not a super enduro. Unless you're Chris birch.
