what a gorgeous bike! At first, I wasn't sure about the orange crash bars and hand guards - but they have definitely grown on me.

curious

Why would a 1200 or 1300 be better than the 990? I would think that would add weight. Not to mention, they just got the bugs worked out of the current mill - I’d hate to start over.
