I too am Inseam Challenged. If my legs were in proportion to my torso, I would be 6'7". However I compensated for my short legs by being overweight. Once I get on, the suspension is beaten into compliance and my feet easily touch the ground!

That is how us stumpy legged guys can ride those tall adventure bikes!

I feel your pain bald guy, I also have been using that technique the last 10 years or so! And it's a 690 Enduro R I'm thinking about, already have an 1190...but not the R

GREAT PICS, who made your crash bars? Toura-tech is coming out with upper bars now, be out in a month or so.
I was debating between the back and the silver anodized panniers, cool to see a bike with the black, looks great!
Can you get the fuel tank off without removing the upper crash bars?

The bars are rumbux. I just replaced the upper bars after a low side that ground the right side in half. They're spendy, but very protective.

I don't take the tank off. I don't think KTM took them off for service (I know they've removed the tank).

I have to take the Toura-tech upper crash bars off to get the tank panels off to remove the tank on my 1190, and I will soon be removing the tank on the 1290 to install the Rottweiler intake system.
How's the weather in Vantucky??!!

There's so many places to take these big bastards in the PNW. I read somewhere that 70% of the roads in WA and OR are dirt/gravel.

They are a handful in anything more technical than 2-tracks tho. Maybe a 690 is the best compromise. I definitely have Husky 701 envy.

Looks like a great time, I went to the Toura tech rally in Plane Wa last year.

The KTM 690 Enduro R vs the Husky 701 is ANOTHER tough call I have been AGONIZING over for the last year!!!!!!!
The Africa Twin is another sweet bike!
