KTM arranged their first European KTM adventure rally in Bardonecchia, Italy this summer. I decided early in the year to take the 1190 Adventure R down – and had an absolute blast. 4 days of exploring some of the best offroad tracks Europe has to offer, with great company and fantastic weather (bit too fantastic a couple of days – 35 deg C is a bit too much). Loved the trip, was absolutely fantastic and very much looking forward to the  2018 rally.

Prep work before I went:

  • Kit:
    • KTM 1190 Adventure R
    • Tires: Heidenau K60 Scouts
    • Adventure Spec crash bars
    • Touratech headlamp protector
    • KTM Power Parts rally footpegs
    • KTM Power Parts bash plate
    • Rox bar risers
    • Barkbuster VPS handguards
    • Touratech luggage
    • Garmin Zumo 595LM + good old fashioned Michelin maps
  • Rider:
    • Klim Badlands gore tex pro – great suit, although a bit warm in the Italian sunshine
    • Side Adventure 2 boots
    • Touratech / Schuberth E1 helmet
    • A few days of off road prep with Clive at MotoScotland

Rally all GoPro’ed – enjoy…
