    If that were true, she'd be driving a Subaru.

    She's getting a new color scheme in the next few months!

    Wow, Mike, that's fantastic !

    Do you usually change tires according to the on-off road change? Is a knobby front tire untreatable on tarmac with the 950/990?

    No, I prefer knobbies as long as I know I can get off-road somewhere. If I know I am going for a street ride, I switch to a different set of wheels with Scorpions on them. My front TKC was dying a miserable slow death much faster than anticipated due to the extra weight of the bigger tanks and weight of my gear. I picked up that tire hanging from the rear from a guy in Anchorage for $20 with about 75% of the tread left. I couldn't find a 21" knobby anywhere in stock so I settled for that. The front made it to Montana/Canada border before I changed it at camp.

    Hey FakeName
    The radio is an Icom IC41S, connected to a GME 3db gain antenna, Sena SR10, bluetoothed to Sena SMH10.

    It does.

    Do you hit your foot on the antenna when mounting the bike?
