Adventure Touring with the KTM 990 and Yamaha Super Ténéré


This is a really good video showing 2 riders who are just regular guys enjoying  a Yamaha Super Tenere and a KTM 990.  Wes is funny about riding the Yamaha off road.  This is really worth watching the entire video….one of the better one’s out there I think because they actually show a dump and accident.  Real stuff.  Enjoy.

Both Yamaha and KTM have dominated the legendary Dakar races for decades. Wes and Grant do their best not to fly off a ridge while taking the KTM 990 Adventure and Yamaha Super Ténéré deep into the Angeles National Forest’s system of fire roads, trails and creeks.

NOW WOULDN’T THIS MAKE AN EXCELLENT BIKE TO  RIDE AROUND ICELAND????????????  ANYONE HAVE ANY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BIKE?  DO YOU LIKE IT?  ADD SOME SOFT LUGGAGE, EXTRA POWER OUTLETS, A SHIELD AND OFF YOU GO….I CAN SEE THIS BIKE AS AN ADVENTURE BIKE.  Maybe not a bike with enough of a tank capacity even with extra fuel? We are not into changing out tanks for a bigger one.

LIGHT WEIGHT, RELIABLE I WOULD HOPE…POWERFUL ENOUGH?  I DON’T KNOW…NEED INPUT FROM OUR READERS.
