took a late day ride down the beach at Daytona (3/5) before taking a 1500 mile tour of Florida and back for the first two days of bike week.

Wow, I am drooling over your bike. Looks great.

I am new to 990's .... what tires are you running? Are they for 50/50 riding?

I agree on the TKC on pavement...they hood up nicely. I have yet to try the Heidenua K60, but its on my upgrade list.

You both need one of these to bump up the bling factor :

I got mine From CJ...the dude rocks. Plus he carries the Heidenua K60

My CJDesigns clutch cover is on the way

For me.. it is not bling as much as it is peace of mind. Every time I look at it and see the oil is clear I know I don't have to do the water pump seal again
