    KTM 790 Adventure, A Dealers (biased) Perspective.

    Introducing the KTM 790 Adventure S & R, a bike I have been waiting for since KTM discontinued their legendary single, the 640 Adventure. A special thanks to KTM South Africa for the privilege of experiencing these bikes in Morocco, shortly after their International Launch. An honor indeed. A lot of people have asked my opinion, so here it is. FYI (or rather for what it’s worth) I have gone out of my way not to read or watch any reviews on the KTM 790 Adventure, I wanted no preconceived ideas, I wanted to form my own opinion. Although, I have heard expressions of disappointment at the weight of the bike as well…

    MotoGP-Qatar 2019

    I can confirm, 30 hours in Doha beats a 9 Hour layover at the airport, hands down. Especially when it includes an epic opening MotoGP! Thanks to the night race, we had time to explore our surrounds, and what a pleasant surprise Doha has been. Clean and peaceful, yet they get the job done. Makes one wonder what all the noise is about! As expected, the MotoGP did not disappoint. Never does. Hard to correlate the surprisingly small turnout with the massive following MotoGP enjoys, although made for a more intimate experience. Outstanding weekends racing set the bar high for the remainder of the trip. However, somehow I don’t see the 790 Adventure…

    Track Experience Monza

    What a treat, couple laps around Monza, under professional instruction, Drivers Briefing and Sighting lap in a minibus! Spoiled for choice between a Porsche GT3, Ferrari 458 or 488 and Lamborghini Huracan or Gallardo, thanks to the strength of our currency my choices were limited to the Gallardo. Not that its anything to complain about, I would have been happy in my rental. Considering the weather Italy has experienced over the last month, I was relieved to wake up to mist and slight drizzle conditions. Set in the woodlands outside the city of Monza, the park littered with dog walkers and joggers, track seemingly invisible through the forest of trees, nostalgia is palpable,…

    EURoadTrip2018 – World Ducati Week

    Blast from the past, great memories of WDW2002 come rushing back. 790 Duke stood their ground in a sea of red, loud & proud and very well received! Kudos to Ducati for allowing us into their domain! (I remember being upset about the non Ducati’s in the parking lot previously, I now have some sympathy for their situation!) Great to see the Ducati Brand growing from strength to strength, even Jorge made an appearance. Still a long way to travel with much to see and do, so we hit the road early. Popped into Pagani, Lamborghini & Enzo Ferrari Museums, decided to overnight in Modena. Mind blowing dinner!!! In desperate need of a…

    EURoadTrip2018 – Lenny in Lucca

    Left Saint Raphael for Lucca, via Nice & Monaco. Taking an hour to cover 14kms, we popped back onto the Autostrada to cover some distance quickly. Probably the fastest we have ridden on this trip so far, helps stay awake in the blistering heat. Bikes buzzing everywhere. Lovely to see. Emotions running high as I take the beautiful surroundings, contemplating the highs & lows as the trip draws to a close. Find myself grinning, in my helmet. Again. Gratefully privileged, would be an understatement. But wait! There’s more. Arrive at the ‘Villa’ in Lucca, with no expectations whatsoever. I’ll let the pictures do the talking here… “A Good Year” Refreshing swim, late afternoon…
