The Bikes

imageThree big KTM twins and one KTM 690.

I didn’t have it all together enough to line is all up for photos.

I rode an ’06 950 Adventure S with a Mitas E09 rear tire and Pirelli MT21 front. My front rim is from a Super Enduro, 1.85″ and the rear is stock, 4.25″.

Corey’s bike is a 990 Adventure. He spooned on a set of MotoZ Desert HT tires. Rear is a 140. The front rim is like mine but the rear on his bike is 4″, slightly narrower than stock.

Peter rides a 2015 Adventure 1190R. Wheels are stock. Tires were not brand new but new-ish, Continental TKC80.

RamJet (ADVRider username) Ron rode is 690 Enduro with a new set of Pirelli MT21. His tires held up fantastically but his bike is a bunch lighter and his route into Deadwood was not as rough.
