Hi my friend, I have 990 adv 08 and I'm planning to buy a 2nd KTM. The two options are a 990 SM like yours or a 990 SD, which is your opinion about those two bikes ? I like the SM very much but I wonder if it is too tall for me and I think that SD will handle better and more sharp than SM. Thanks !

I'm glad to here that I am not the only one that dislikes the white front fender. Awesome bike though!

Yesterday at the local motocross tracks, practicing one-hand neutral positions. I also won the "whoever gets to that hill over there last, wins" contest by going slow as possible.

I have the 690E front fender fitted to my 990 Adv and have problems on full compresion with 'something' catching the front wheel ......... and the only culprit I can come up with is the mudguard - I think the front of it.

So - does anyone know is the 690E mudguard any different to the 950SE ?? Is the 950SE bigger or anything?

Churchill Trip

A few pics of the orange beast from our Churchill adventure last summer.




Riding the rails on the way to Churchill Manitoba



On the wild gravel roads to and from Gillam, which is the "end of the road" As far North as you can ride (on the road) in Manitoba.



You know you're on a remote road when....



One of my favorite pics from the trip. It actually said K+M...I couldn't resist "adjusting it just a bit



Who needs a Goldwing when you can have a big orange recliner like this?




Somewhere halfway up the Province of Manitoba


Makinaw bridge

We'll have a ride report as soon as my brother gets his shit together with his pics and videos.....You'll want to see this one...7 crashes, 12 flat tires, one Polar bear 1 plane crash, one ship wreck and swimming with hundreds of beluga whales!
