To me it looks like the ohlins fork cartridges and from the looks of the bike the full suspension package from Powercell? Beautiful 990 AJ!!

Kewl! I did that last year in the winter with a couple of buddies. Two of us on DR-Z400s, and one on a 450EXC. It was a great place to ride and camp. Did you ride the old abandoned dirt roads in and out like we did? Howzabout the old abandoned mine roads in the northeast corner of the park? For a National Park, Joshua Tree has some fun dirt to ride. We also spent a few days in Anza Borrego crashing in sand washes. That was some heavy lifting.

Ha! The answer to almost all of those questions is no. This was a shakedown camp/ride in preparation for a big Alaska/Canada ride I'm doing this summer.

Mainly we were just trying out our gear. And in true Katoom form, I was able to drop it in some sand at 25 MPH. Picking up a big bike in front of other gawkers always seems so easy!

That looks like some great country to be celebrating buying the bike in.

Those end cans on your new Baja are my favorites. I think the carbon tipped ones I have look stupid.
I had the Ti tips on my CBR full system. I really liked that set up.
But, I like my 990 a lot more.

Its an 09, with the GPR exhaust. Very nice sound too, much different than the Akro's I had on my 950, but still barks pretty good!

It came with the Neduro tank, so I'll probably leave that alone!
