Right before I bought my 2009 KTM 990 Adventure from the PO (picked her up in Tuscaloosa, Alabama the first week of Jan. 2012, with 550 miles on it)



Current look (Safari tanks with custom 3M "carbon fiber" vinyl wrap and custom logo graphics... not to mention a boat-load of other nifty performance and esthetic farkles)

And of course I like the all black look.

I like what you did with that KTM. Better than original for sure.

Where did you get your decals made and for how much?

I designed the new graphics and my brother cut them... he works as a vehicle wrap graphics designer/installer. I believe the 3M vinyl graphics were cut from scraps

I like the design as well. You really did a good job with that bike.

On that BMW, I like the After more than the After After, but the After After is better than the before. And it is pretty close between the after after and the after.

Does that make sense?

Absolutely, I think.

You just have to look at his pictures and you'll understand that it is infact a true "go anywhere" bike
