I had a BMW R1200GS for 3 years. Spent lots of $$ trying to make it the dual-sport I thought it should be. As it is, I took it places it really wasn't intended to go. I ride every day, rain or shine, and after a while, it just got boring.
Test rode the 990 and it was immediately apparent that this was built by folks who just have a different mindset about how an adventure bike should ride. It comes stock with all the right stuff. I added crash bars and luggage racks, that's all it needed. One thing's for damn sure, it's never a boring ride.
