Love What You Have // Tim and Marisa Notier's  KTM 1190

by Kelly Kawasaki

Why did you choose your KTM 1190?

We started taking camping trips on the Yamaha Raider, but being a cruiser, it didn't have the greatest luggage system for carrying all our camping gear. Marisa ended up being burdened with a lot of the weight on her back, and we eventually knew we wanted to invest in a motorcycle that was designed to go off-road and into the wilderness. So in 2014, we bought the KTM 1190. We've been riding around the world for the past three years on her, and she's still going strong.
