If that were true, she'd be driving a Subaru.



And here's a pic so I don't get too far off topic
She's getting a new color scheme in the next few months!

Sorry about the deviation and the fact my last trip was on the 640 so here's one from Valdez

Wow, Mike, that's fantastic !

Do you usually change tires according to the on-off road change? Is a knobby front tire untreatable on tarmac with the 950/990?

No, I prefer knobbies as long as I know I can get off-road somewhere. If I know I am going for a street ride, I switch to a different set of wheels with Scorpions on them. My front TKC was dying a miserable slow death much faster than anticipated due to the extra weight of the bigger tanks and weight of my gear. I picked up that tire hanging from the rear from a guy in Anchorage for $20 with about 75% of the tread left. I couldn't find a 21" knobby anywhere in stock so I settled for that. The front made it to Montana/Canada border before I changed it at camp.

It does.

Do you hit your foot on the antenna when mounting the bike?
