I switched from a 1200 GS to the KTM 500 about five years ago with the idea we might have more fun all riding our own motorcycles.¹ Hunter took to it but Jess and Brenna never did. I was sad about that since adventure with loved ones is my favorite thing about riding. Riding without them is opposite what I intended.


I have therefore been planning for some time to get back to a bike that’s good for a passenger but better than the GS on trails. Smashed foot notwithstanding, I’m excited for the adventures we’ll have on the 1290.
