Thumb Riding + Modifications + Aftermarket + Shop Time / $ = :)





2010 990-R / This photo was taken the day after I finished the last round of modifications this spring. It has several thousand more miles on it now and is not as clean. More importantly, I have more appreciation for this motorcycle now than I did the day the photo was taken.

Forgot about this one too. We went up to the Lakes a couple of weeks back to hike up the 3rd highest mountain in England, Hellvelyn. Went up on the bike Friday evening, did the hike Saturday, decamped and rode home Saturday afternoon.



Just in case you're wondering the hill beyond the bike isn't the mountain I am talking about. This is it, not very big compared to most in Europe and the mighty US of A.

Gav: Stunning pics mate!

Question for you: here in Colorado when we get into "terrain like that" - the lack of large vegetation is caused due to lack of oxygen - i.e. we find that pattern above 11,500ft or so.

I'm assuming you are a lot lower than that; what is the cause of the lack of trees there? Wind? No top soil? Cold?

cheers,
Ed

Hey Ed

Thanks for the compliments

It's only a mere 3,117 feet, but the hike up was stunning, we had to scramble climb over a section called Striding Edge, it was pretty hairy in places and Jack said afterwards if she knew it was going to be like that she wouldn't have done it.

This is Jack coming to the end of striding edge.



As for the plantation, I guess like you say is a combination of severe weather climate in winter, maybe?

Hope you're well my friend?

I know this is the thread for showing off our wheels, so I've just done a quick ride report with a few more pics of the hike here http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...4#post21795474

I took the picture two weeks ago up north in Sweden. Jämtland, the second most densely bear populated area in the world. Didn't see one though, only reindeers. The roads seems to be made for 990 full throttle action.

Right click on the picture in Flickr, choose the size you want and then click on that (I chose "Medium 800" since that is big enough for posting on a forum). It will open the picture in that size. Right click again and choose "copy image URL". Then paste that into the "Insert Image" field and voila.
