AJ - Sweet set-up you purchased there. TKC 80s on the tires? How do they ride? I've had them on a GSA and like them, new to the 990s so curious.

Gonna put storage on the left side there? Not affiliated but just an FYI - For those TT racks, If you get a CJ tool box, you'll have to have the rear brace tabs rewelded lower for it to fit. I've got a CJ fuel tank but think they're set-up about the same size. No big deal, cost me about $30. Just ask them to put the top of the tab where the bottom is now. Works great.

TKC 80 rear, D606 front... just a guess :)
Nice pictures AJ.

Now you need an Excel REAR rim and HD powder coated stainless spokes to match the front. Come to think of it, I owe you those doo-dads... on its way soon, along with all the other goodies and your luggage dude. Glad you made it safe!!

Yeah tkc 80 rear as Kip already said. Rode great at 80-85 for the whole ride
home. No noticeable vibration, haven't tried it offroad yet but I'd use the tires again. Thanks for the heads up on the cj storage box as I plan on ordering one. Thanks again to Kip for an awesome bike that couldn't have been set up better.

You're welcome A.J.
I think one of my next mod's will be fog lights, probably mounted where my turn signals use to be. Will let you know how that goes.

BDCW has some fork mounts for fog/spot lights that they were going to test on a 990 a while back to see if they cleared the Safari tanks. Not sure how/if they updated that result yet.

As soon as I get a chance I will update my signature and profile photo to MY bike (instead of yours) Awkward.

AJ990, Great fotos of your bike. How useful/effective is the windscreen spoiler.? Notice it's removed in some other fotos.

AJ990R,

You have succeeded in getting my Tiger into the 990 forum. Great pics from your ride. That was my first D2D. I was on the Tiger right behind you in your pic next to Hacky Moto. You know he got picked for the US GS Challenge team this year. I think they finished 9th overall.

I wouldn't say totally useless...I felt it does cut down on some buffeting...but not as effective as one would hope. I found it will move around on a rough road in the rain @ HWY++ speeds, that was pissing me off on the Dalton hwy. It should be bigger, but a must doing any distance riding @ hwy speeds when I wear my MX helmet w/the visor, my .02

Drunk Uncle,
I think I camped a few spots from you that whole "event" @ GoldRush! I ended up staying right next to Two Moto Kiwis. I know all about HackyMoto! He is fugen awesome!!! & very humble at that...I don't give a shit what he rides, I saw him pretty much "bunny hop" that 1150 in the tight cone "game". Well... BMW did send him to South America I ended up riding the T.O.W hwy the following day w/some new AK friends, stayed in TOK that night with all the D2D organizers, & was there when, Hackys 1150 came there on a trailer in pieces not 24hrs after those photos! But he survived is all that mattered, small world

I've re-joined the ranks again.. my third LC8 was brought home Saturday.. then on Monday I took a friend out in 32deg weather and showed him some of my favorite spots along Hood Canal.. too much fog to see the mountains, but the mighty Olympics are behind the clouds on the far bank.. I'll go back and spring and take a shot to prove it to ya knuckle heads.. one of the prettiest spots on the planet.

anyway, the beast(s)
