    Don't get me wrong, I don't mind getting my bike dirty, but the spray off the rear of the 990 is ridiculous! Hell, it even gets on the tank bag. Has anybody come up with a solution?

    Try removing the tank bag and riding more mud.

    Stick a dirty great rally car mudflap under the number plate. Job's a good 'un.

    Just try to blend with the 1190's. Right after you hit the car wash, that is.

    Ride report: It works!..not 100%, but there was substatially less spatter on the back of the helmet and my jacket. And none on the tank bag ;-) It doesn't look too offensive, if I say so myself. I'm still thinking about tassles, though...any ideas on something I can remove quickly after finish my caramel flan latté and go KTMing?
