No pix in use; thankfully haven't needed it. We've rigged it up and the kids have pulled various things around the yard, no pix of that.

The kit:



This is 160 feet of ~1300 lb 4mm; 100' of 6mm takes almost exactly the same space. I like the reach of the longer rope, once you start creating MA with pulleys it uses up rope in a hurry.

The 4mm is harder on the hands, but a clove hitch on a 'biner helps that significantly.

Zipped up. In addition to the stuff in the pic above, there's a big 4mm loop (about 5' diameter), another about 3', and a few odds n ends. The bag is about 11x5x4 inches.

Thought I would unravel waiting for this beast to arrive. Can't wait to run it in. Stop missing 690R.......now.



Looks at home in the garage...



Won't stay this way for long.

I'm sure we'll run into each other at some point. Hard to miss another 990 out and about!

Wow that's a beautiful photo. Would you have it in 2560x1600 so I can make it a wallpaper?

That would be quite an honor, because one of your photos is my desktop background!

There are a few pics here, one might work:

This is one of those bikes that,let's say "Is just a badass" . Me and all my KTM buddies can't explain it. This bitch runs like a scalded ape. We have tried to shed all the weight that we can,we are getting close. Installing Galfer rotors next week,then we weigh her.
