Hey Larry you dwarf that 950!! Cool pic and the bike looks sweet! I've checked out some of the pics on the blog. Where did you get the big round Dakar sticker from that's on the windshield??

Thanks from across the pond

Hi DeeGee, that guy dwarfing his 990 is my nephew. He rides the '08S and mine is the '04S with the sticker you speak of. I got the sticker while riding in Morocco a few years back. Sorry, but I'm not sure of it's origin prior to the guy who gave it to me. When I added the rear tanks, I painted the wind screen and added the sticker.

Yup... sliding down the road on your butt only works well with leather.

It was black. Now it's blue. I swapped plastics after I got home from the TAT.



All in a good day's ride I suppose... at least I'm not back in michigan yet
