Nearly 2 years ago, I went to Albi to purchase my first enduro motorcycle, the 2018 KTM EXCF Six Days, which had previously accompanied Juliane in the Trophée Roses des Sables (cf. dedicated article).

Since then, we’ve covered quite a bit of ground together! Whether it’s the Passion Désert Raid with its average daily 300 km, enduro races with A.M.I.S, training sessions, or leisure rides.

The more I get to know her, the more I adore her! It feels like she can tackle anything. She even managed to climb almost to the top of one of the highest dunes in Merzouga!

She consistently impresses me with her durability! Despite numerous falls and tumbles, she always starts right up!

I recently swapped the original 52-tooth sprocket for a smaller 50-tooth one, and I’m very pleased with the results. It makes her even more agile. I can’t wait to test it on the upcoming raid in Tunisia.
