bummer on the crash, I hope that you are recovering and will be well enough to ride, looks (RIP KTM 950 tag) that the ADV did not fare as well.... you make reference to some "overtime fairing tanks", do you have more info about them?

The recovery will take about 6-8 weeks, so thats the best part of my riding season gone for this year. I've only got myself to blame for it and will learn a lesson from it.

The 950 was my old bike and I replaced it with the 990S almost two years ago. I'm not sure how damaged the 990 is yet, there is alot of scratches on the screen and right side of the bike, front wheel/forks/bars out of alignment and a broken foot peg, mirrors and other minor stuff. I rode it for 4 hours to get help and it seemed to be alright, I wont see the bike untill i'm good enough to go and pick it up and then I'll know whats needed to fix it.

The fairing tanks are the South African made carbon fibre ones that have been around for a while but don't seem to be very common, mainly because of the price. I got these ones second hand from another inmate and they have been damaged and repaired before. I'll try and find a link to them.

edit-here is a little bit of info

I got stuck behind a 4x4 towing a camper trailer for about 5 minutes, as usual i had the HID hi beem on and was trying to get his attention in the side mirror, this always works but the driver says he didn't know I was there.
The track had been dry and very dusty up untill I went to pass, as soon as I got passed him I saw a large washout followed by a series of mud holes for a few hundred meters.
I held the throttle on and tryed to blast through but the back wheel hit the trialing edge of the washout, swapped sides a few times and then spat me off.
If I had of held back on passing for 30 seconds, I would have seen what was in front.

Heal well LC8TY, and damn those grey nomads !

I hadn't heard of those carbon tanks before. The painted ones on wilddog look very spiffy indeed. Don't think I'll bother checking the price though.

thats some nice metal work , 2 into 1 sounds like the ticket.

Today i finished tweaking the bike. It got tanks degreased with pine sol and then dish soap and rinsed with cheap gas. Added a dna filter, +5 to155 /160 to h2w kit plus another 1/4 turn on new flex jet fuel screws.balanced, Flushed coolant, changed oil , new inline fuel filter added 6 gallons of 100 race gas - rode around for a while and it is a sick tune, hopefully the carbs and intake stay clean for more than a few tanks
