I just bought a 990 and hope to soon to get out and explore so land down under.
Hello DownUnder 2upAussie990....sorry for the Tardiness as I've been moving into a newer House to suit my woodworking skills: bigger garage. I also cannot believe that my 2008 ADV trip has been found among the thousands of great stories..

By USA medical regulations I am considered deaf. Wearing a hearing aid on my right ear just for directional sounds..doesn't work. My left ear is shut off completely. I read lips well and don't hear grinding valves until the motor dies . At my age I don't think it's wise to fool with CI's. Better leave it be.

Your 990 is a fine bike and please do see the world from your perspective and let us know here.

Cheers....
