Finally Nice Photos of My KTM Duke 690

KTM-Duke-690-05-23-2014Woo! Finally took some photos of my bike. Since we’re not in Vancouver, yesterday we rode over the hill to Half Moon Bay for lunch. We do this a lot, it’s only 15 minutes but even on a Friday traffic was crummy. I figured I’d document my mods in a post.

Beware, a girl rides this bike, do not touch! R&G tail tidy. I highly recommend the Evotech tail tidy, however the R&G works. It was the first thing I got so I didn’t know better. It’s held up, can’t complain, but I’d have paid the extra for the Evotech if I had done more research.

They are farther out in reach than the stock, even in the smallest setting and my hands aren’t super small but they are gimpy. I have long fingers but I’m just getting used to them.

I got a replacement but upgraded at the same time so I can tilt these up or in if I want to get skinny. They are kind of bolted into place right now though.
