Why we love engine bars!





I would have had far less sense of humour about this had it been my tank and not the bars!

Looks like you may have been having fun
I have narrower Excel rims laced to SuperEnduro hubs. Makes it more suitable for off road. I ride the bike off road only.
I'm running only one front disc. Gives me plenty of stopping power for off-road even with minimal use of rear brake.

This bike just keeps amazing me...I'll never get rid of it!

Funny that this was brought up just now, i have a question if SE wheels would be a straight swap to a Adv? Apart from it being one rotor short.

At least i saw some wildlife, 2 mooses quite alot of reindeer and 4 female Capercaillie
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capercaillie (hmm english wiki dont show the female.



One almost flew into me it was down in windscreen height but rose alittle before i passed it, glad it did, a 3kg bird at 140km/h would hurt.

indeed it is!! That uphill is about one quarter of the whole climb.

I took the alternate route up and down that hill as no bike except maybe an elite trials rider might make it clean.

A good day.

Yesterday was my sixth day on the 990. I decided that it was time to go find some dirt doable by my feeble off road skills.







This is the coolest bike I have ever ridden. I need to find some other local riders that dual sport now.
