Here's a couple of pics from today, my first time off road on the 990 adv.

Leith Hill, Surrey lanes, very wet and pretty slippy with the front Scorp.. Plus I usually ride a 450exc so not used to the weightnearly lost the front a couple of times going down the gulley you can see behind but managed not to drop it

Will provide you withthe link, Sent the manufacture requesting details. I have even heard they now have KTM part numbers.

Will revert soon.
