Awesome! Looks like you got them setup right straight out of the box with high fenders, the Safari's & wolfman luggage

I have visions of you sitting under an old gum tree listing to a kookaburra laugh while checking your valves the first night

I know, huh? 24 gallons (or 90 some-odd liters!) combined fuel-carrying capacity!

Had some fun on the pavement for a few days blasting through the German Eifel with some budies on sportbikes. They couldn't keep up with the 990 though. ;)

I had to turn around at the snow line and on the way back I had a little difficulty in some slick mud with my Scorpions!

Scorpions and MUD

Luckily I had an extra mirror back in my garage and except for a few bruises it was a free crash.

I love this bike. This is going to be a good summer. It is great to be home!
What gears are those you're wearing?

My club put on our annual spring Berkshire Big Adventure ride this past weekend. I got to ride my new bike off road a lot. This pic is from the start area. It was pretty cool seeing 150 bikes lined up in a row ready to go. There were at least a dozen 990/950's participating so I got to check out a number of other orange lover set ups.
