I'll figure it out though. Each side will be a map depiction of each coast as it relates to me. Here's the NYC side of the bike which is the "right" coast and the right side. It is the area from Brooklyn, where I lived and have my studio, through lower manhattan to my shop in NJ. It's abstract and yet meaningful. I like it.



I tried it in white as well which looked very cool too but orange seems to blend more as a graphic and read less as a map. It almost looks like circuitry.

PS Like that better Johnny? Obviously this is a tip of the hat to Deadly whose bike was so pretty.
WOW Gregor - this is amazing. Even for proofs you take so much time and care with your images - this looks fantastic. I fully appreciate the NYC side - I wonder how you will chose the Portland map coverage given that your time there is still fairly new? I have been to both cities many times - even navigated up the Columbia River to Portland a few times. - so I can also appreciate how both places speak to you.

Chokes are our priority - Chris has to have them done before we tear into the bike for the AWD. I don't know about the 320mm - mine is very tall, about the height of the older 04 S bikes. Evidently it's not a problem as we only swap the fork lowers where the axle attaches. I think the drive shafts can be made any length.

Don't worry Pete, the 39's will head to you long before anything happens on the drive train.

Yes, we've thought extensively about that. We're planning on changing the kit significantly in order to keep the entire package within the frame rails and to preserve the stock tanks. We have some unusual ideas about that drawn from Chris' history of race bike chassis design.

Glad you guys like the graphic ideas. The other side will be more topo related to hint at the dual nature of the bike as I will still run two sets of wheels. If in fact I have to sell my Husaberg to fund the AWD build the 990 will end up as my "dirt bike" for the summer so it will spend a lot of time with knobbies.

Very cool graphic design!

Say, has the Version 2 of the TPS mount gone to production yet? Haven't heard back from Chris yet. I'd like to have that installed before the season is upon us again.

If by "project" you mean madnesses. Discount for an ADV riders of course! Also up for sale is a Steyr Tactical Scout rifle (308), a Hammerli 208 target pistol, a couple of nice Canon lenses (24mm f1.4 & 50mm f1.2), a CRF100 and a number of other pricey things that will be reappropriated into this bike or my new garage shop.

It worries me to sell the Husaberg but its too cold to ride and I suspect that the 990 will be my focus this summer anyway - wonder if I can fit paddle tires front and back for the dunes...
