Wow, very nice!
I really like this color combination on the black Touratech cases since I saw this thread last month:

Are these 38 litres also?
Do you have part # for the orange protective parts set?
Thanks,
HDen

Looking good! What is the Seattle Touratech shop like? In terms of service, range (and price/sale items!). I go there a fair amount on business.

Thanks. Yes they are 38's. The long strips are 050-0898 and the corners are 050-0899. I was wondering if it was going to be too much but I think it turned out perfect. Now all I need is to break them in

It would work on the Adv, not familiar with the SE so forgive me if it's a silly suggestion....

It is a really nice set up but it is in a real sketchy part of town(at least it seemed that way). Everything I wanted or had questions about they had in stock and were willing to show me how it worked. The employees were great as well. No sale items that I saw but they waived the sales tax(as I'm from Montana), he also threw in a hat and the water and 2liter fuel jug for free(of course the tab was $2600). I called them the week before I went over there for a fishing trip and they pulled and held my items do they'd be waiting for me. The main guy I dealt with was Morgan. Top notch group.

I installed the Tornado F5 screen on my 2008 990A. The screen is the non-carbon "short" version, which is an inch lower than the stock screen.
The production quality of this screen is very high, and Warren, of Tornado F5, is first class
I am fairly sure you can contact him in "Vendors".
I only did a quick shake down run, but so far I like it

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

I'd been mulling over a bunch of different lifts but at $299 I ran down th HF this morning to get one but the one they had was damaged so I got a Rain Check.

After looking at the Chock I went ahead and got http://www.harborfreight.com/motorcy...ock-97841.html which was also on sale. Can't wait until next Monday when it is due in and no more sitting on the cold, dirty concrete.

Hmm, I think it would work in theory. However, part of my goal is easy removal of the tank, so just being able to break loose and lift leaving behind the fuel line is nice. I've never looked close at an ADV so I don't really know if this idea would be of use or applicable.

I didn't get that chock, but similar HF one. I mounted it and I don't think I need it because if the center stand.
It just gets in the way IMO.
Will use it did other bikes or when I need to work on the 990 with the center stand removed.ymmv

Stupid road accident.
Turned to the right at a junction.
A van was (legally ) parked on the left corner. Didn't see the oncoming car due to blind spot behind the parked van.
Only when I entered the road I saw it. Luckily I managed to turn almost completely to the right so the car hit me from behind in stead of having my leg sandwiched between the car & my bike.
Landed on the hood & windshield; and eventually, walked away with only minor injuries (only some contusions and a minor concussion according to checkup in hospital).
ATGATT does work, whatever people say

bike is an other issue... broken swingarm, bend subframe, bend luggage rack, destroyed left crash bar (was thinking the week before to remove the crash bars to save some weight up front, well, that's not gonna happen now :) ). Chain ring and sidestand are also bend, don't know yet about the wheel. it looks ok at first sight... Lot's of smaller things that broke (clutch lever, handguard, mirrors, remote control tripmaster, blinker, ...)
If the swingarm didn't break as it did now, I'm sure the main frame was bend also. So I'm somewhat happy that it did snap...
