    Hi Camion!

    I have been looking/watching your pics/videos, and looks like you are having big fun overthere :evil
    Think there is not much russian riders posting here, so thanks for sharing :1drink

    Great pics, specially those from Iceland!

    By the way, did you know that "Camion" means "Truck" in spanish?

    Keep your adventures coming, mate (droog?)

    Didn't know that, Salzig... thanks!

    So, for those whom their wives keep saying "Again lurking and wasting your time at AdvRider instead of fixing this or that at home?!?!?"... be aware that you now can answer "My love, AdvRider is a huge knowledge fountain that exceeds bikes topics, to expand my mind about other cultures and languages, and makes me easier to understand the most important, finest and deepest mysteries of life, and therefore, I can be fully committed to our family." :lol3

    Ok, back to our time wasting :D... According to your signature and to the color your bike as it shows your avatar, I understand you converted your 990 in S, keeping the stock ABS. but if it was the inverse case, an S model to which you added the ABS, I would be interested in more details about it, thanks!

    Hello All,

    I'm joining the group as a 2012 990 Adv owner as of last month. I managed to get a few hundred kms in before the freezing weather hit. :eek1 Would like to thank the group for helping me choose this bike as the "one " to have if you only have one bike in the garage. It's true that it's given me more smiles per mile than any other I've owned. Jesse bags go on next month, can't wait til spring but I'll have to.

    Yes! it takes far more than two or three pumps, but what the heck! when you are in the middle of nowhere, all you have is time instead of an air compressor... :D

    I also take always one of those. If you are going to buy one, be sure it's the 2-ways-inflator one, so you can almost double the performance.

    I use one also and half the time I go for a bicycle ride I look down and think "Where's my pump? Damn, it's in my tail bag".

    Today I took it out of the bag and when I got to the trails, left it behind the seat of the truck :baldy

    Luckily, it was not needed

    1cool, how Slime performs at high speeds?
    I always used it for my enduro bikes, but I have this doubt about the speed...

    I only take a hand pump. You can easy seat a bead with them, remember they are design to put 100psi+ into bicycle tyres, thats more than most petrol station pumps will go to.
