List of issues that are known by year.... http://www.ktm950.info/

Currently have had a few issues with my 07 990, but still love the bike.

Anyone want to go to CO/UT for ~5 days the week of Labor Day? Be nice to have more than two people (meeting a friend from MS) and someone to split the drive/expenses with.

I can haul two bikes total, anymore than than I need to find a loaner on a half ton.

Well if this trip doesn't pan out I talked to Lagcam and we are also planning the TWAT sometime in Aug/Sept. Maybe we will see you up there.

Love it! Getting new fork springs installed tonight and new progressive shocks are on the way for the ass. <$300 for new suspension is CHEAP!

I actually rode the Husky today for more than 10 minutes. Might take the long way home tonight.

Yup! I got the rears for 185 shipped barely used. Usually sell for 250 or so is all for progressives. Front feels WAY better with progressive springs and 10w bel ray fluid.

It wouldn't be too hard to talk me into a CO/UT trip in lieu of the TWAT. Not sure if I can spare the time/money for both...

Sorry I missed that Chris I might have been up for something, but I had to run to lab in the morning and then I rode out to Sutliff with the little women for some fresh pressed apple juice and hard cider You oughta make a run out there with your growler, so far I think I'm the only one who brings one in there!

On a similar note, I am thinking about riding out to Peacetree Brewing Company in Knoxville this upcoming weekend if anybody wants to tag along. I have a big ol' test on Friday, I'll be ready to blow off some major steam by then. The other alternative is running up to Old Man River in McGregor, the riding is better that way if you stay close to the river. I'll probably just have to talk to the GF and see if she wants to go and then decide from there.

I rode some yesterday and did ~100 miles of the TWAT today. More pavement that I was assuming, so I would start around Soldiers Grove if I am gonna do that in a month or so
