Just picked up a 2010 990 (standard) last week. Got to explore the wide open prairies last weekend. I've got to get with the program and get some more bike pictures.
This is an upgrade from a KLR650. The weight for the first 30 minutes was intimidating. After I started standing & treating it like a dirt bike, the rest of the ride was an absolute blast.
