No one wanted to park next to an adventure bike at the Iron Horse hotel in Milwaukee........
Riding in the Alps.......
End of an era for me today, I have sold my 990 . Over the past twelve years I have put 50,000 miles on two 950's and a 990 Adventure, they have been great bikes and have taken me on some great rides.
Although I have orange blood I am not interested in any of the current offerings from KTM so I've ordered a Yamaha. Any 950/990 that passes me will still turn my head without doubt but it's time to move on.
I would have thought that some proper V twin DNA might have rubbed off onto them lol.
Nice bit of kit you have there!!! Any chance of some pics from the rear showing the Mosko setup? Are you running a frame/pannier racks?
Thanks in advance.
Getting packed up for the KTM Rally/Ultimate Race next weekend! Should be a good time, and hope to see the old 9X0 bikes well-represented.
I know that hill, that’s a good section for a 950. Not one very many people would try. Where’s the rally at?
^^^you're short at least a 160cc's^^^
Ha shit my bad. Had 8 different tabs open
It's in Breckenridge, CO. Should be all kinds of rock ledges out there.
Good luck man, i'm sure you'll do well.
Bummer its not further north, i'll be in Montana. No 950 though, ran out of time to prep it but last year i rode it exclusively (blew up the 530 on day one ) so this year will be fun to play on the little bike.
i was planning to go, but Montana has a hold on me right now,,, yeah Header,,, the weather is awesome up here,,, get packin'
That’s what I want to see, I love it up there. I’ll be at the pipestone trail area east of butte.
The 950 is in the back so I think this is ok to post here
Just completed a 9 day trip from Seattle through Glacier National and back...The ol 990 performed flawlessly.
installed ½ the graphics tonight. they’re a little short / odd is some areas. i have some white vinyl that i’ll use to fill the end of the gas tank panel.
Very nice! Where did you source that?
i designed it and one of the members here printed/cut it. i’ll have to go through messages to find who. i can send you my artwork, just not on the cut line panels. you’ll have to source those.
Well, a little over a year ago or so I sold my SE's and all my LC8 SE/Adv spare parts, panniers, racks, bars, lights, pegs, rotti air boxes, skid plates, and other goodies to many here in the OC. Sold them because I was moving on to a more modern bike and felt I had all my fun on the LC8..... well, I'm gonna need some of those parts back... just saying
Weather is about ready to turn awesome here in the Southwest and I was still without a big bike.... soooooooooooo, this fell into my lap today just 2-hrs up the street. About as plain Jane stock as they come... been very well taken care of and appears most of the miles were slab... I'll know more when I give it a good once over...
