    I'm with you. I just picked up my new (and first) KTM 990 Tuesday. My 800 GS is for sale. Previously had a 1100 GS. Let 's see some pix when you get it. I'll also be interested in your experiences with the beast.:clap

    I picked the bike up this afternoon, and drove home quickly as I could. I went for a short ride (40Miles) It is a very nimble bike. I can finally touch flatfooted with both feet! I had a KTM 620 RX-C a few years ago and this bike is light years ahead. I am looking to get a few items like a tank bag, not a real big one and some hard bags. Touratech or plastic ones? I will be changing the light to a Euro model with HID for sure. and a better tail light. Any other suggestions for farkels ? Thanks, Mike
