    Welcome! Just a few ADV bike riders here, so you may want to also follow advrider.com's "Adventure in Ohio?" thread.

    Dibs! BUT I don’t think it’s transferable. I sure wish, I’m picking up a brand new KTM in 2 weeks.

    All three of my reps contacted, thank you Jim!

    Shorai Motorcycle Batteries

    If the question is to me, I'm not sure I understand. Could you restate it differently?

    Shorai Motorcycle Batteries

    Apologies for the battery charging tangent, but what you guys say is very true - multi-cell batteries (usually one, two or three parallel rows of a 3-cell series) need to be charged in a way that brings each cell to the same voltages or else you can damage or even cook the battery. A friend into RC airplanes caught his garage on fire charging a 4S cell with a non-balancing charger 4 years ago. I always look for batteries that explicitly state they're compatible with simple chargers (i.e. they have balancing circuits built into the battery) or have a separate balancing charger. You can visually tell the difference by looking for a secondary charging port with 4+ pins (ground plus one pin for each series row).

    Something so simple, so bilaterally agreed upon, and even it got fuxored as a way to nudge colleagues into supporting a tax increase until it was stripped from the final bill like a used up hooker. Politicians suck. Government sucks.

    I'll definitely hit you up later this summer once my 790 Adventure R comes in.

    Being charged extra by the government to legalize reduction of hearing risk doesn't sound fair at all to me. This is why I hate politicians.

    You should enter my name into the system and score that $500 KTM credit for me... ;-D

    Pricing Announced for KTM 790 Adventure

    Thanks for posting that @Qman - that's pretty validating of the 790 and not very good news for Yammy. I'll be the first will eat crow if the 790 Adventure R has a bunch of first year model woes followed by more next-year China manufacturing gremlins, but I'm pretty excited for the European reports to come in any week now. Another friend and fellow ADV rider @Firedog just put his deposit down on one tonight.

    Pricing Announced for KTM 790 Adventure

    I really want to but I don't honestly think I'll have it by then. I've been told "probably May," but who knows. More likely I'll have the Strom. Nonetheless, yes, we will be getting into ADV stuff :-D.
