I put a set of Wings exhaust on the 990. No more burned hands and they sound really good too.

I can always pull the spark arrestors out and throttle it like a Harley rider at a stop light.

I'm filing an ADV Farkle Installation union grievance...

Section 12 Subsection 3a paragraph 2 states:

"Installation of farkles without proper supervision by one or two smartass onlookers making comments and observing said installation will constitute a union grievance."

Sorry about that. I had no premeditated intention of installing the aforementioned farkles without the appropriate smart-asses in attendance, it just kind of happened.

However...

Appendix F Section 9 states:

"In the event that the farkle in question is so overwhelmingly badass AND necessary, said farkle may be installed upon delivery, if and only if pictures are immediately posted in the First rides, farkles and fixes thread."

Fine!! I'll rescind my planned course of action and forgo my union grievance since you bring THAT loop hole! :(

Now that's the way to take it out of the showroom.

Congrats on the new bike.
