Ha ha Rusty, your telling me.
Market share mate is what I've been told, and BMW has it, 80% plus of the Adventure market, bet Mr KTM wished he gave "The Long Way Round" boys a couple of KTMs when they asked for them!
Adventure riding is snowballing globally thanks to the long way round and its such a pity so many guys that want to experience it think that they should be on a BMW, they are riding big heavy pigs without the same riding pleasure experienced on a more nimble bike, be that a DR650 or KTM 690.
Of course they carry everything plus the kitchen sink to make the bike even more unrideable, each to their own I spose.
Keep it light as possible I say, a swag, a change of jocks and socks, a quart cup and a camelback and a couple of cans of chunky stew and I'm set for adventure, the only time you need to head for a town is for fuel, **** and more cans of stew!!

Thanks mate
