What mods have you done?

I am guessing its a Touratech bash-plate & rear brake cylinder guard.
Touratech high fender?
Disk rotors.
Looks like a renazco (high?) seat.
Cant tell what exhausts they are.
Cant see the cockpit changes..

Looks like a nice bike!

There's one in every crowd.

The important stuff is the suspension setup and the triple clamp geometry change. You can't see that stuff in the pics.

EDIT: It's the stuff that really makes the bike work for me.

Hi, it is my first message....

Hi...

My name is Carlos and i live in Medellin, Colombia.

I was reading adventure rider forum, for a long time, and here were where i read about the "Orange Crush".... Then i couldn't resist and fall in love of the 9fiddy...

So, I bought a 950 Adventure with 15000km one month ago, and then i did a 700 km trip to the coffee zone (zona cafetera), here in Colombia. This bike is also better than you friends said: i felt like driving a powerfull train just in betwen my legs, and let me tell you, this bike have SOUL.
On weekends some friend of mine and me, goes to the "llanogrande" (big plain) near to my city (40km aprox), at 2200 meter above sea level, to enjoy some "arepas de chocolo" (round maize loaves) and a hot chocolate.

Take a look for some photos of today journey:

At the gas station (the meeting place)...


The road to the International Airport (Jose Maria Cordova) and the enter to "llanogrande".


At "La Casa de Amelia" (Amelia´s house), famous for "fogottos": some kind of very, very delicious crepes...


And let me show you our beer (if you come for here, let me invite you.... ).


Well.... good luck. And sorry for my english
