If you want a good mtb ride you should come out for the AZ Endurance Series ride/race on the BCT Sat. Starting at Rock Springs, riding up the road to the top of Antelope Cr. by Old Cordes then back on the trail. Should be around 50 miles. I'll be there with 74 of my closest friends.
How I got Hilsamer's 990 is an interesting story, for later.
I LOVE the fuel injection. I have planned to give a comparison between the two bikes on Orange Crush sometime. I pretty much like everything about the 990 a little better except his midget low seat. I loved the 950 too but this bike is better in my opinion. The snatchy throttle at super low speed is noticeable but I'll take that in trade for a bike that runs perfectly at any rpm and altitude. It gets much better gas mileage too.
