I recently sold my 08 990 man. Same color, same sick feeling inside watching it leave. That bike stirred my soul and always left me with a smile on my face. Right away, I picked up a really nice 625SXC that is just so damn kick ass, but I still miss the 990. Money IS an object in my family and we needed it to do a recent move, so I know I did the right thing. Still hurts. I am happy that the sale of that bike helped us through a tough time. I know I did the right thing. I feel your pain.
