Been bitten by the Orange Bug

Hi all,

Just a quick post to give you a look at my latest (haven't had a bike for the last 12 years!) ride.

Must admit the 2007 990 Adventure S with 12 000 km on the clock was a bit of a impulse buy (was looking at a "roadie" or a R1200 GS). But after tackling my fear of not being able to touch the ground with anything other than the toe of my boot, taking her for an initial ride and listening to the wonderful growl of the v twin, I knew I was in love with a bike again.

Bought her on the spot and rode home (1200 km) with nothing more than a pre trip oil change.

We've since done another 12 000 trouble free km. And know the farkling has begun (a coat of paint, some carbon fibre) and now maybe some suspension tuning, a few more ponies would be nice.......... where does it stop!

Looks tall for a 2007 S (245mm). Does it have the big (265mm) suspension?

2003/04 "950S", 2007/08 "990S" and 2009/10 "990R" models had the 265mm of travel.

Changed the fuel filter and took it for a 340 mile shakedown cruise, runs like a champ and is getting better MPG as well.

Yo rokklym,
Used to live a couple miles from there, the old mill is one of my favorite stops. Skinny dipped in the pond back in the day.
A great area to ride in w/numerous great scenic, winding, up n down 2ndary roads.
