    What else can I say that I'm super impressed with the R?

    Well, we can even do moderate off road around Amsterdam. Be a bit creative and you can have fun.
    Took her for a spin yesterday, about 100 km, wow! NTW, thos AC41x tires are pretty good on the road too.
    About to go out now to do another before more sheit weather comes in.

    @blackSP Those AX41 are great for our area of Europe ;)
    My home is very close to the border of NL and B, I go like 90% of my offroad riding west of the border. Some really nice areas beside the TET to ride to my likes.

    picked up my 790Adv R today and did about 250 km on road only bit of minor roads bit of motorway
    but the best bit was riding on one of the Dykes between Den Bosch and Nijmegen where my mate on a
    tiger 900
    stated that I was in quite a hurry
    and my reply was that I wasn't even trying!

    the 790 is so easy to ride! IMG-20200215-WA0002.jpg IMG-20200215-WA0003.jpg

    Personally, I find your styling on this to be my favorite I've seen so far, and I plan on using your inspiration to create my own in a similar fashion. Thank you for posting your pics.

    I'm a little surprised to hear that your putting the rear fender back on -- I really like the exposed orange frame and may keep mine like that. I would very much enjoy seeing some updated pics if you've already completed that step? Also, are you OK with the skid plate? I think I may opt for the AXP poly plate and remove the decals for the clean black look with extra protection.

    Thanks again..

    What turns my crank everytime I see another AXP shot in the wild, is just how closely it fits to the tank sides. It's not obtrusive looking even though it's fairly inclusive a design, covering the belly, front (including crap flap area), and the tank bulbs.

    Agreed. That was what really drew me into the design. I appreciate the Touratech system with skid plate reinforcement, but it didn't provide enough of an OEM redesign for my liking. Granted, my desire for this bike is to make it truly mine. I purchased last week and pick up whenever I'm ready but I'm still working on acquiring a storage unit that I can use as my garage (and playpen).

    I plan on picking up Friday and posting pics of the "before" stock photos.. then I will be customizing until my heart's content. I've traditionally always kept everything stock on my vehicles out of concern for resale, but I'm over it... this is going to be my monster, muahahahaha. I decided that I'm truly going to treat this as my toy, stress reliever, hobby, partner, and investment... hell, I might even name her.

    Stay tuned....

    Congrats!

    You could name her Monster, as long as you don't treat her like a cheap tart. We all know how that ends.

    LOL.. I don't mean to get the thread too far off track here, but what a phenomenal actress... I imagine a Charlize Theron in "The Italian Job" and drift off into bliss, then I see your gif/clip and remember the raw power that keeps me honest... Charlize might just be my baby's name. I knew I joined this thread for a reason :nod

    I got the black AXP, it didn't have any stickers on it when I got mine. I prefer it clean without stickers.
