    It's time to get this rolling :wink:
    So you just got your new 790 Adventure (R) and want to share your joy, show here!
    You did some awesome mods or updates to your bike? Show 'em!
    Nice shots while traveling or just enjoying a dirty ride? Place here ;)

    I've promised to start this with taking a picture when my 790R arrived home and we have our first (of many) beer together - so here you go:

    You're damn right... but wait for it :evil

    I've bought this Akra for about 8 bucks...
    It's just the sticker :lol3
    Call me dumb or weird, I just hate the empty look of the stock Can,
    but have to deal with it until Wings or Remus will offer theirs.

    You mean that's not an Alpinestars windscreen?

    Slap as many stickers on it as you like. They say they make the bike faster! Lol.

    At least you have one... :(

    Not even Acerbis Guards or Michelin Tyres (yet).
    But yes, of course the sticker makes this Can sound way better :D
    Btw.: I've been in contact with wings, they'll be available in about 2 weeks :clap

    The first standard version in the Philippines. First order of the day was to mount my trusty Touratech top case from my 1050 and some film protection for the windscreen and instrument panel.

    ^ Awesome @a.c.e.

    I've heard that the front end 'out of the box' is incredibly planted! The LC8c engine and ride, much more sophisticated and smooth than the original LC8...
    Grin factor?

    Grin factor was infinite right on the first ride ;)
    Today was our first time on challenging trails with deep muddy ruts, Rally mode is gold out there!
    On the more open trails you just fly by and let WP do it's thing, so fun to leave scared GS drivers in your dust (we have plenty here in germany) :D

    Some say anticipation is the biggest joy :D

    ... well, might not be true for this orange framed ride, it just propels the joy each day riding :wink:
