    Just picked up a 2010 990 (standard) last week. Got to explore the wide open prairies last weekend. I've got to get with the program and get some more bike pictures.

    This is an upgrade from a KLR650. The weight for the first 30 minutes was intimidating. After I started standing & treating it like a dirt bike, the rest of the ride was an absolute blast.

    Did a ride similar to that this past summer in Montana. I couldn't believe how flat, open and desolate that place can be

    These orange ones my brother made of 3M vinyl have been on since July. No problems with adhesion, but they have a few minor gas bubbles. Just about time to change them out... hmmmm, may go with a multi-color logo this time.

    The full wrap didn't last too long before bubbles appeared almost everywhere, but using the smaller decals seems to work better (more exposed surface area for out-gassing?). Also, the TechSpec tank pads are still holding in place with no bubbles underneath, either.

    That's because I didn't want you to see it was a GS :lol3



    Just kidding, I was on an 04 950. I carry a camera around my neck and rarely get off the bike so lots of my pictures are bikeless.

    That picture was taken shortly after this one. (no GS!)

    After cresting the hill (Mountain for that area) the GPS said turn right so I went down this which led to a rail crossing then down what was either an old road/rail bed or drainage levy shown in the original post.
