Hey there, I'm Gabriel!
I'm the head of a very small team running this Torture Test Magazine thing, and here's a little bit about this small operation!
Torture Test Magazine is primarily a YouTube Channel where I like to make content to keep the dream alive for those of us who understand that you don't need the latest and greatest equipment to get it done. And by "get it done" I mean kicking ass at riding, racing, and collecting KTM Tears. I make SCREAMIN' content on any bike I can get my hands on. Every bike I've ever purchased has been the cheapest thing I could find at that time, and it has never mattered. I get it done on whatever I've got!
The Torture Test Magazine name comes from a previous attempt at creating written content, which you can still find archived here. Even though I'm not continuing to make that type of content, I keep the name because people recognize it and they know what to expect when they see it.
Check out my stuff. If you buy anything from this website, you'll be invited to join my private Facebook group where I post videos early and blog about what I've got in the works. In case you're not on facebook, you'll also receive a free membership to https://www.buymeacoffee.com/TortureTestMag See you there!
Say hello to the next bike: XR600R!
If you'd like to see some TTM madness on this XR600R, feel free to support this project! Put whatever silly/awesome sticker you want on this bike if you support the project.
NEW! DR200 In-Depth Build Walkthrough - Now available
Even if you don't have a DR200 or care to modify yours, you could find some entertainment and insight into my performance tuning philosophy in this article. There's a lot of BS out there for these bikes and I cut right through that and made a ripper for cheap, then proved its worth through open class racing.
