Submitted by Koen on Wed, 01/17/2024 - 12:12

Hello, fellow riders!
Let's catch up on the latest upgrades to my 2007 KTM 990 Adventure and a recent muddy escapade that left both the bike and me longing for a thorough cleaning.

Revving Up with Dobermann Exhaust Headers

First up, the bike's growl has just gotten deeper, thanks to the new stainless steel exhaust headers from Dobermann Performance.
Not only did they fit like a glove, but they also added a marvelous aesthetic touch to the KTM.
The shine of stainless steel under the sun is just mesmerizing, and the sound is music to any biker's ears.

The headers allow the usage of the O2 sensors, which help the KTM reduce its thirst for fuel.

More Than Just Headers

But wait, there's more!

We've also added a larger luggage plate for those extended tours, ensuring we have ample space for all our gear.

And for an extra bit of control, especially on those rough trails,
a RallyeMoto Steering Damper is now part of the bike.

It's not just an upgrade; it's a transformation.
The bike now feels more poised and ready to tackle whatever lies ahead,
be it a twisty mountain road or a challenging off-road trail.

The Great Mud Adventure and Aftermath

Now, let's talk about our recent muddy adventure.
It was a thrilling ride through some challenging terrain, ending in a spectacular dive into a muddy waterbody.

The aftermath? A bike caked in mud, requiring a meticulous cleaning session.
It was a labor of love, getting into every nook and cranny, ensuring our KTM was not just clean but also in prime condition after its daring feat.

Future Plans: A Decal Makeover?

Looking ahead, if the KTM 990 Adventure remains my trusty steed, it might just get a stylish makeover with a new decal sticker set.
This would give it a more contemporary look, ensuring it stands out both on the road and off it.
It's not just about keeping up with the times; it's about giving this beast a fresh identity that matches its spirit and capabilities.

Wrapping Up

In conclusion, the journey with my KTM 990 Adventure continues to be an exciting one, filled with upgrades and adventures.
It's a bike that constantly evolves, much like the experiences it offers.

Let's be honest, the KTM is perhaps making me become a better rider. 

Stay tuned for more updates as we keep exploring new paths and pushing the limits of what this amazing machine can do. Ride on! 🏍️💨
