KTM 950 Adventure, Model 2004
Due to there being a shortage of second hand BMW GS 1150 Adventures available in Dubai and our departure date rapidly approaching we have had to settle for the second best adventure tourer in the world. On informing some of my more knowledgeable friends about this development I was advised that Jerry should take along a bag of spares and a tow rope. I suspect that this trip may turn into a shootout between the BMW and KTM. I of course have no doubt that the BMW will again reaffirm its reputation as the no 1 adventure tourer.
There is still a lot to be done to the bikes to prepare them for the trip and I will update you on this at a later stage. At the moment we are focusing on getting our visas and documentation sorted out and I am heading for Cape Town for Xmas and will meet up with Jerry who is also in Cape Town.
