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 :

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

No kidding about the peace of mind. My wife got one for me for Christmas a couple of years ago and by April it had already saved my engine.
