Aussie 950/990 Owners Thread
 
Im surprised there hasnt been one of these yet... and much needed i think, for the most versatile motorcycle out there.

Post up your pride & joy.

Mods...
H&B Crash bars, H&B Carrier system, Heated grips, GPS RAM mount, AJ Plastics windscreen, Black dog bash plate, EGO Barkbusters, PIAA 510 ATB Aux lights, HID 50w H3/H7 Headlights, Spare road wheelset 19/17 with Galfer wave rotors.

All too easy to dump money into these... but smile per $ is up there.

maybe its cause 9x0 owners as a rule are not needy :scratch

ADVJake 06-22-2008 03:17 AM

Maybe.
Its good to have a central location for questions for them, aussie jetting, where to buy bits locally, etc.
I know i'd like to know where to get the fittings for the facet 40171...

this is number three for me:

My first - a silver 2003 950 Adv
my second - an orange 2004 950 Adv
and my current love orange 2005 950 Adv

I have 19"/17" wheels also and this alone transforms the bike into the most versatle bike in the world - IMO of course..

Thats the thing... i'll toss the crash bars and proudly scratch up the big tankers, which are more than half the price of one of the stock tanks :D

Some of the stacks I have had would have disintegrated any tank had I not had the crash bars.
