Must admit the 2007 990 Adventure S with 12 000 km on the clock was a bit of a impulse buy (was looking at a "roadie" or a R1200 GS). But after tackling my fear of not being able to touch the ground with anything other than the toe of my boot, taking her for an initial ride and listening to the wonderful growl of the v twin, I knew I was in love with a bike again.
Bought her on the spot and rode home (1200 km) with nothing more than a pre trip oil change.
We've since done another 12 000 trouble free km. And know the farkling has begun (a coat of paint, some carbon fibre) and now maybe some suspension tuning, a few more ponies would be nice.......... where does it stop!
Looks tall for a 2007 S (245mm). Does it have the big (265mm) suspension?
