The latest News and Updates from RJ
The KTM 1290 Super Duke R 2015 and 2017 are known to have slippery rider pegs. I did notice on a couple of occasions but it never really bothered me until…
The other day, riding in the rain, my right foot slipped and resulted in a semi-dangerous situation, so decided the hell with it, I’m changing them. Got a set of Puig Racing adjustable foot pegs.
Most mods such as a Tail Tidy or pegs are made of high quality and mostly powder coated to prevent corrosion, but the bolts they use are usually made of cheese and will corrode in no time. I always replace them with Marine Grade Stainless Steel bolts or even sometimes Titanium. The bolts on the right show the difference between the standard shiny bolts and the SS ones I will replace them with.
An eagle eyed Tonya sent me a message stating that she didn’t notice me carrying anything to the bike shop and was wondering how did I carry my Jacket. The secret lies in these two genius inventions, the foldable backpack and duffle bags. Many times, we carry stuff one way and we don’t need to have a cumbersome backpack with us all the time, so you simply clip this to your trousers, and when needed, expand and use. In case of the jacket, I used the larger duffle bag.
