Newbie intro from France

Post by thebiglad » Sat Oct 03, 2015 11:50 pm

Hi all, my name is Dave and I have a 2013 1190 Adventure, with heated grips, tyre pressure doohickies and EDS.

I bought Kitten 4 weeks ago and have done about 2000 kms since then. According to the trip computer she is averaging 4.9ltrs per 100 kms which I reckon is remarkable considering the amount of punch she has.

I have already blocked off the SAS and soon be removing the O² sensors, replacing the std. airfilter set-up, and maybe going for a de-catted exhaust downpipe jobby. Ergo drivers seat is on it's way and currently fiddling with screens to reduce the amount of turbulence suffered.

Cheers all,

Dave

Thanks very much guys.

I get the impression that there aren't many 1190 Adventure's on here, is that right?

No idea really, but what the hell, it doesn't matter, just enjoy the forum and let us know how you get on with the bike. :ugeek:

Fair enough, that's what I'll do.

I plan to do a fair bit of modifying of the bike then hopefully plenty of long-distance runs, so maybe it'll be interesting for the people that follow on.

Cheers
