From what it looks like, professional Motocrosser Ross Branch (@rossbranch_111) had the opportunity to test the KTM 1090 and things went a little wrong.. Found this on twitter but there wasn't much of a back story on it that I could find. The hashtag #GoodTimes was in there so everyone's alright ! :D

Well its sand, not surprised, if you take it on a wrong angle and don't have a good feel for what your doing then you can find yourself in a bad situation. This is why i'm happy enough sticking to off-road terrain found in my northern parts of america. No dunes for me.

I really don't think I have anywhere that has terrain like the dunes so I'm really not too worried.. Kinda looks like fun though. Are you going to be going on more bigger rock kinda trails or dirt trails ??

You don't know? Where do you live?
I guess your completely new to this segment of bike if that's the case.

I have a place down in Arizona, during my time there i'll take the 1090 to those dunes.

Scratches? Adds character! It looks like he was riding down from the large dune and lost traction near the bottom and face planted.

He isn't the first person this has happened to and it won't be the last time.

That depends on who you ask but I like to prevent them whenever possible. Scratches on the black plastic... sure, but on paint definitely not. Planning to get paint protection film for painted parts.

Plan on doing it yourself or taking it for someone else to do it ?
I'm new to it, not well versed, so looking into the the process will be my first step. From that point on i'll decide if it makes sense to do it myself or pay a shop.

Ultimately if preparation requires a lot of products then off to a pro I go. Not spending $100 in products that i'll use once and have 75% left over.

Thankfully there are a ton of youtube videos that can provide a good insight on how to do it and there are many different methods of getting it done. Material can be sourced online for a fair price, other than that all you really need are some sharp razors, a squeegee of some sort, and a heat gun.

Even then you have to factor in all the time and money your spending along with what you actually want to do and get out of it. Sometimes its just not worth doing. At least unlike a car we don't have nearly as much to look after.

With cars I find that they're just majority flat surfaces, straight and flat. These panels are a bit more intricate in relation. But definitely a lot less surface area.
