    With all the carbon fibre goodness your bike is equipped with it should levitate, not fall to the ground :lol3

    Nice wheels, flashy orange lot nicer than sad black ones.
    By the way, talking about aesthetics, if I can suggest, heated grips + heated gloves + handlebar protections keep my hands warm enough at minus 10celsius for 45mn at 100km/h.
    Don't be upset, I'm the winner of the strange accessories challenge (but useful)

    I use the 690 to find new single track. Another successful day today with 100km+ mapped out. This bike can do it all ..

    I was riding alone and it’s always nice when you eat shit (and I did) that the bike is easy to recover. Too many sketchy moments with my old 990.

    2014 Kit690 , Put a Rekluse in it , had Stillwell Performance get the suspension dialed then AFAIK did the first ride down into and out of the Sinforosa Canyon , south through the golden triangle of Mexico and down to
    Durango DGO . I have ridden all the sections but the last one on a dirt route I've been working on for a few years . Starts in Agua Prieta , Mx. routing through very remote areas of the Sierra Madre's finishing near Tepic
    on the Pacific .

    Photos of the ride down into the Sinforosa !

    Looking back to the North and the descent . 6'500 ' !

    With the extended fuel range, dialed suspension , Rekluse , Scotts damper , atrig preload adjuster and Mosko
    R 80 . My little rocket ship is the perfect adventure bike for arguably one of the roughest most remote rides
    in Mexico .
