As it did in years past, KTM will pay homage to the ISDE (International Six Days Enduro) by offering special-edition enduro motorcycles. KTM has launched two Six Days models for 2017—the 300 XC-W Six Days and the 450 EXC-F Six Days. This year’s ISDE is set for October 11-16 in Navarra, Spain, and KTM’s Six Days models will be there competing.Already top performers as standard models, the Six Days arrive from the factory with multiple performance upgrades such as orange anodized CNC machining triple clamps, front fork preload adjusters, a floating front brake rotor and a solid rear brake rotor. Further upgrades include the Six Days graphics and orange flames.
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, the weekly podcast brought to you by Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Motos and Friends is brought to you by Yamaha. You can check out the amazing YZF-R7 at your local Yamaha dealer, or of course at YamahaMotorsports.com. The YZF-R7 is an amazing supersport machine that is comfortable too!
In this week’s first segment, Editor Don Williams takes the smallest BMW ADV bike on an urban adventure in Los Angeles. The BMW G 310 GS is a full size motorcycle with a modest engine, so of course we wonder if it is a little too underpowered and might struggle. Don put it through its paces and gives us his take.
In the second segment, Neale Bayly and Kiran Ridley have returned from the Ukraine to Paris where Kiran is based.
Kiran is an award winning photojournalist, and as an accomplished documentarian, he has covered stories as diverse as drug smuggling around the Mexican border, to the devastation of the Australian Bush Fires, to the tragedy of the Mediterranean migration crisis. Neale and Kiran reminisce about their motorcycle adventure in the Ukraine, and their observations and experiences with the incredibly resilient people of Ukraine, who have been put through such brutal hardship.
