990 riders in colorado

I am new in Colorado so I would like to start a thread for 990 riders. Of course I would love to ride with anyone in any bike. This is just a way to find buddies and discuss about this particular bike and eventually help each other.

I just make a nice purchase of slip-on, intake, SAS. etc so I would love to meet anyone with more experience to ask for advice/help.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Do you know about the orange crush section?

The season is still a bit early for the good stuff, but there are rides around, or post up one you would like to do.

Welcome to the forums and Colorado, I guess you never made it to LA?

Yes.

And within there this link is useful for 990/950 issues and upgrades:

Specifically the "Hall of Wisdom" at the top.

Welcome!

Hahahaha, I think I wasn't too clear. I know there is plenty of information in the forum, I can't stop reading. I guess I am looking for something more personal, a buddy that can help tunning the bike or just a good talk in front of some beers.

I look forward to join any of the ridings.

I lived for almost 2 years in LA, I sent my 990 back to Spain when I moved to Colorado and I finally found one in good shape.

The line has to be drawn somewhere.

Yeah!! Stupid 950's. . . 40cc's short of MANLY.

If you want to ride a 950 with the 990 crowd, you have to prove that your balls have dropped.
Last year Hellsickle was leading those inspections. . . and it was pretty rough, so, um. . . reminds me, I need to make another appointment with my therapist.

I'm sure you know both the 950s and 990s have the exact same displacement.

Wait a second here! I can remember at least one 990 that wanted turn around instead of heading down a rutted, muddy Cherokee Park Rd last spring. I won't mention names (Hellsickle).

Oh yeah, 950s welcome as well hahaha. The problem is that I feel lost when it comes to TuneECU stuff, so not much to do on a 950.

Thanks!

I'm game. I need a chance to lose the Wimp in a Stream title I earned with Hell & Prairie several years back...
