Prices and how to will hopefully follow

This is appealing. Thanks for sharing, as I'm interested in making this addition to my 990.

Looks great, I HOPE the paint sticks for MANY MANY years.
I have read about horror stories though.

A few re-edited pics, since mine is currently disassembled (prepping for a long ride).

Because sometimes you want to ride your motorcycle AND go kayaking...

For reference, that is a 17' Folbot Greenland II on the back. Yes, I love them both!

Nice work. Keep them coming.

Frikkin' awesome pictures as always Geek and quite dramatic pix there Paul

If you guys don't know about this tool yet, it's amazing and FREE:

ICE , Image Composite Editor, info here

Available in 64-bit and 32-bit from Microsoft Research.

Once you see how fast and easy you can stitch vast quantities of pictures together flawlessly and create wrap arounds and giant panorama's that you can zoom in on to amazing detail levels, you'll never think the same way about what images you can create. I know it did that for me and quite a few people I've told about it. Discovered it random searching for a good photo stitcher, and I don't think there's anything else out there like it, especially at that price.

Now go out out there and grab grand sweeping panorama's with LC8s in them and give Geek a run for his money (oh and don't forget tone mapping and HDR).

New....well sort of.....KTM 990

About 8 weeks ago I was taken out by a neighborhood dog. Doing approx. 30 on the way home from work and he came out from behind a truck as if to give chase and misjudged the time distance continuum,. The 990 was previously all white, here are some pics of the upgrades over the past 8 weeks. Huge thanks to CJ for working with me, especially on the tanks, and to Darryl at cyclopsmotorsports for the kick ass Carbon fiber screen! Here are some of the pics. I still havent decided what to do about the front fender, but I find it very annoying and out of place now, where before I really, really liked it. Front fender design, graphics were from Crispin, so if anybody has a dark ( low fender (in good condition) they are interested in selling or trading let me know.









I am really digging this screen!












This should all be posted in "What did you do to your......" But this has been in progress for the past few months.
I have noticed an increase in horsepower due to the filter but have not yet dynoed.
I never really had an issue with the stock screen buffeting, but come from a sport bike background, and at 5'10" and 165....just not a real issue, so I cant really speak to buffeting with this windscreen from Cyclops Motorsports, however, I sure like the looks of it! I do have a several day trip next week and can maybe speak more to it. Thanks again Darryl! CJ helped me a lot to locate some tanks and I really appreciate it along with all the other parts I ordered from him, Thanks again.
