Been in the market for a 990. Plenty of 950 a flight & day ride back to Houston, TX but not many 990 in the past few weeks. Been considering the uber-outfitting one in Orlando (too high price based on my research and the 2007 990 listed in the flea market with around 48K miles. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=869776 Looks like the water pump, valves & shocks should be good for awhile. Hopefully the FM4 + tune removed the jerky throttle I've read about but I can tackle that later if need be (haven't seen many 09-11 bikes for sale). Bike looks decent in the pictures. I would need to add some engine protection like skid plate & front guards. Feel free to PM since it might be awkward to say something listed on the flea market is a shit deal FWIW I plan to explore hill country & sam houston park, infrequently commute (short distance) and work my way up to Big Bend and Mexico down the road. I won't have time for more than 1 week long trip a year. I've read up on the 990 so I'm not asking if a 990 is the right bike...asking what more do I need to find out about this one?
