Just picked up a 2010 990 (standard) last week. Got to explore the wide open prairies last weekend. I've got to get with the program and get some more bike pictures.



This is an upgrade from a KLR650. The weight for the first 30 minutes was intimidating. After I started standing & treating it like a dirt bike, the rest of the ride was an absolute blast.

Jeff, you now have two out of (what I think are the right) three.

Did a ride similar to that this past summer in Montana. I couldn't believe how flat, open and desolate that place can be

Might be a hard-sell on Orange Crush.

Depends what you mean by "works"



These orange ones my brother made of 3M vinyl have been on since July. No problems with adhesion, but they have a few minor gas bubbles. Just about time to change them out... hmmmm, may go with a multi-color logo this time.

The full wrap didn't last too long before bubbles appeared almost everywhere, but using the smaller decals seems to work better (more exposed surface area for out-gassing?). Also, the TechSpec tank pads are still holding in place with no bubbles underneath, either.
