Adventure Riding

Anyone out there adventure riders? I just bought a 2018 KTM 1090R and am looking for someone to ride with. I work shift work so both weekends and weekdays work for me. I'm open to all types of riding (SHNF, Beach etc.)

Nice bike. Almost bought the 1290. I really enjoy the dirt so I went with the 1090 for the lighter weight.

Yeah definitely HOT for sure, but I'm use to riding motocross and sweating bullets, so ADV riding doesn't seem too bad.

Hit me up next time you go out riding locally.

Lots of good information on ADV, only problem is most of it is directed toward the Austin/Hill Country crowd. I was hoping to find something a bit more local.

Well 90% of good Adv riding in Texas is in that area so makes sense. But search more and you'll find SHNF, Cheeseburger, Piney Woods, Fayetteville, etc. Adv rides also. But even those are typically 60+ miles from Houston to the start. But this is Adv riding and on a bigger bike miles are nothing. Plenty of times I leave the house early, ride 150 miles to ride start in Austin, ride all day with group and then ride 150 back home.
