Benvenuto Stefano.
Your English is fine and much better than my Italiano. It's nice to see someone putting plenty of K's on their KTM. Post some pics of the beast.
Enjoy the HUBB.

Thumbs up

Ciao, compagno
Il mio inglese non è inoltre in uno stato di arte, e tanto meno conoscere la lla lla l�*nigua italiano.
Ma poi usare il traduttore di Google, per ogni evenienza.
E come spesso si dice in spagnolo: Suerte!

Hello Stefano and welcome to the fold . Truly impressive km's on your 950 Adventure. What year is your KTM?

Do you have a blog or ride report of your Africa trip posted somewhere?

Pull up a chair and make yourself feel at home.
