Since you own or have owned both, could you tell me if the 690 is up for the job? Will it do everything the 990 does?
Nice mod btw!
Having had a 950 and a 690 at the same time...then sold the 950 and now just have a 690 I can say....the best combo is to have the 950/990 and a 400 or 450 sized bike. Two bikes that do what they were designed to do very well vs 1 bike that does what it was designed to do well and does ok on the fringes. My 690 is becoming my rally bike...possibly touring machine but I still crave to have something like a 950SE in the stable.
