I think I've shared this here before, but here's a better look at the Neptunes.

I haven't had the bike on a dyno and haven't yet played around with TuneECU. I haven't seen another 990 with them.

Curious about the mounting of your aux-gas cans in front of your bags....

Thanks

New 990 Adventure owner

I just purchased a new 2012 990 Adventure which I delivery of this Saturday Feb 16th. With my other bikes being a XR600R and DRZ400S.

All brands and models have their own little quirks.

What can I expect from big orange crush?

What is the typical fuel mileage and range on highway, and on fireroads?

I have heard stories about the fuel mapping having to be upgraded to what is on the Adventure R?

What tires work best for 80/20, 50/50, and 20/80 Highway/Dirt?

How confortable will this be to tour on for long distance. My old BMW was a work horse and was pretty predictable. With the setup I had I could be in the saddle for hours with no discomfort. Any suggestions on ergonomics?

When I get a picture of her I will post. I will be the guy with the huge grin on my face.

Norsk62 screwed with this post 02-17-2013 at 05:40 PM Reason: attache photo of new bike
