I like the white... tell us about your lights, please. Now that you can post pics, how about a cockpit view to see your lighting controls, too.
We don't ask for much!
Thanks very much to everyone for all your comments they are much appreciated....cheers.

It's not a good shot of the cockpit, I will try to take a better pic next time out.....

I got a 07 990 A, Im putting back together after a crash, and wont to put a high fender on. Which fender is every on using? The one for 950 SE? and are any fork guards made to fit the 990 or is cutting the stock the best way to go? Ive look at the guards on a 690 SMC and they look like they will fit. But would like to put on the offroad guards.
Thanks for the Help. Forrest

When I wanted to go with a high fender I had more money than time and while my bike was in for service I simply had Scuderia mount up the KTM version for me. Sure it's all made to fit but I feel a bit the sucker for paying so much for the kit and for someone else to mount it. Given that you have a 990 you might be better served with a little DIY work and fab one up using a 690 enduro fender (instructions).

Edit: and use the search, like "high fender" and only search the OC section, this has been discussed a *lot* already so there are plenty of threads just waiting for you to read them.

Any of You Bay Area FFs own this. Saw it at the Fairgrounds today and Loved the setup

The 17/19 wheelset was very nice looking too.
