    Hi Dave-
    Awesome bike and beautiful pictures. I've looked at your profile
    and done some searching but with no luck, so I thought I'd ask
    you directly... Could you talk about your exhaust line briefly. If
    I had to guess, I'd say Neptune but I'm not sure. I'd love to hear
    your take on this issue with the 990, as we all read about the Akro's,
    Wings, FMF, etc. but it appears you have something else going on
    here and the mileage to give a helpful opinion on this important weight
    reduction improvement to the 990... :ear

    gt, They are CF Neptunes. I know nothing about them, except they were on the bike when I bought it. I was the 3rd owner, so the guy I bought it from didn't know much about them either. It appears they are made in New Zealand and possibly were carried by Adventures Workshop at one point. They sound sweet. Not terribly loud, but deep. I haven't had the bike on a dyno and haven't yet played around with TuneECU. I haven't seen another 990 with them.

    I think I've shared this here before, but here's a better look at the Neptunes.

    Curious about the mounting of your aux-gas cans in front of your bags....:clap
    what size are they? and do you have any pics of the mounting brackets you used?
    Thanks

    I just purchased a new 2012 990 Adventure which I delivery of this Saturday Feb 16th. With my other bikes being a XR600R and DRZ400S.

    All brands and models have their own little quirks.

    What can I expect from big orange crush?

    What is the typical fuel mileage and range on highway, and on fireroads?

    I have heard stories about the fuel mapping having to be upgraded to what is on the Adventure R?

    What tires work best for 80/20, 50/50, and 20/80 Highway/Dirt?

    How confortable will this be to tour on for long distance. My old BMW was a work horse and was pretty predictable. With the setup I had I could be in the saddle for hours with no discomfort. Any suggestions on ergonomics?

    When I get a picture of her I will post. I will be the guy with the huge grin on my face. :D
