Turbojet (dumbass) with yet another post that's been hashed over 1000 times before. I see other inmates have similar questions so I thought we could recap. I just put a down payment on a 2012 WHITE 990 Adventure. Looking to make this my do-everything bike (having previously owned 1100GS, KLR 650, KLX 250, Vstrom 650 and currently 800 GS). I'm not sure about luggage but can peruse all the threads about this. I'm thinking hard luggage for long distance touring since I like packing books, cameras, etc. GOBI VS KTM/Touratech? For serious offroad I would opt for WOLFMAN soft luggage.
However immediate upgrades I am considering include heated grips, CJ Designs tail rack (with rotopax for extra fuel), CJ designs side stand relocation, and some sort of tail hard case for everyday commuting, shopping, etc. Anything that fits on the CJ Designs rear rack that comes on and off easily, possibly Pelikan hard case? I like the GIVI case on my Vstrom but it is dorky looking.
I would also like to see pix of white KTM 990 farkeled out.
