    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?

    Is about using whats possible to get hold of cheaply, have used it for lifting an engine out of a VW Golf also, might have been pushing the limit on it then (rated for 200kg), works fine for the rototilt for the excavator also weight 200kg its a threaded rod doing the lifting.

    But this is the 950 picture thread so adding an old picture I really like:
