    Oh yea....that's my multi state pack mule.



    Beg, borrow or steal a ride on a new 2020 690...will make you think about all the weight of the 990's.

    Hell of a nice stable. I'm down to:
    '10 990 KTM SMT
    '04 Ducati ST3
    '78 BMW R100S

    Yeah, I sold the KTM Adventure. Kicking 78 years old in a few days and decided to keep it on the pavement from now on. Loving the SMT.

    Here's some photos of todays banging around in the shop.
    Working on hand guards and mirrors on the 690.
    Needed more robust hand guards than stock, and the stock over long mirror stalks were a joke, vibrating to non use.
    Last week I got a start on mounting my new set up, but it needed some tweaks because I am combining products from different manufactures.
    What it came down to was I needed wider bars to mount the mirrors.
    The grips I like are longer than stock so that worked out.
    Been down this road before, lengthen the throttle tube for the grips.
    Was not thrilled on the hand guard mounts to the bar ends, so I made my own, that added 3/4 inch to the bars on both sides.
    With the added width of the bars I also need to lengthen / make a extender for the hand guards where they mount to the center of the bike.
    Not quite finished but it's looking hopeful. Thanks Zoob for the use of your lathe.

    Got a 30 mile shake down ride in today.
    Handle bar vibration is cut down more than half over stock.
    Mirrors are a lot clearer that stock because of less vibration.
    The mirrors are high quality, the third set I bought from this company.
    I have been using these grips.....for a long time and love their feel.
    Next to do is finishing the extender links in the middle.
    A little time to let the finishing touches shake out and call it good.
    Next is the GPS mounting.

    Finally back in paradise...
    Your pictured Oury Road grips and ODi Mushroom grips, are BY FAR my vibration absorbing favorites bar none.

    That and your double balance shaft motor, will make for a comfy and spirited ride. :thumbup
