West Virginia to Indiana | 2022 Cross Country Day 1

On Friday, August 26, 2022, my sister and I took off on our cross country motorcycle trip. My sister rode her 2012 Ducati Multistrada while I was once again on my 2016 KTM 1290 Super Adventure. We left Bunker Hill, WV and rode to Bedford, IN. Also, I sorta ran out of fuel along the way.

The final upgrade to my 2016 KTM 1290 Super Adventure? | Back in the Garage

I’ve owned my 2016 KTM 1290 Super Adventure since September 2016. Over the course of the last 6 years I’ve ridden it all over North America and have put nearly 60,000 miles on it. While it’s had some modifications, once thing it was missing is the mod many do first…an upgraded silencer.

KTM 790 890 ADV R Enduro Engineering Skid Plate Install | Back in the Garage

In this episode of Back in the Garage I show you how to install a new skid plate on your KTM 790/890 ADV bike. I upgraded the stock skid plate to an Enduro Engineering Skid Plate. This particular video I show how to install one on a 2021 KTM 890 ADV R but the process will be nearly the same on other KTM 790 and 890 bikes as well as the Husqvarna Norden 901.

How to keep your motorcycle helmet from fogging | Anti Fog Shield

While the Aria XD4 helmet is arguably the best ADV helmet produced, it does have a major flaw…the FOGS! Originally they offered a PINLOCK shield…I tried multiple and it didn’t work. Now they offer an anti-fog shield…for $80!!! I decided to try an anti-fog insert for only $20 and it worked. I’ve tested it multiple times. If you’re interested, check out the link below.
