Yeah I am pretty proud of her. After putting on over 11,000 miles on her G650gs single cyl. she said she wanted a little more power and a more comfortable ride on long distances. I found a great deal on a used 990r so we lower my 990 for her. (seat and fork triple clamps.) Lucky she has long legs (32in. inseam). She is almost flat footed, 1/2" at the heel) She loves it. It also nice to have the same bike for spares and such. Selling her GS.
We hit a nice long gravel road on the return and was trying to get some video shots. She has to learn to deal with the shorter turning radius on the narrow lane gravel road u-turns. G650gs turned much tighter. She will get it.
We love riding together and your don't know how many other M/C's guys have told me how lucky I am. We'll keep that a secret, right.
Jack
ps : also put the KTM throttle cam system on it and it is so smooth off the bottom with the mellow cam.

I've seen that section of rocks in more pictures here than any other section of trail. That the only dirt road in Wales or something? Looks like fun.
