New 990R

After reading all your post over the last few months, I had to find out why these bikes are so popular, so I work a deal for a brand new 990R and picked it up yesturday. I rode a freinds 950SE a couple times so I kind of knew what I was in for. Just before I signed on the dotted line; I took it on a 5 mile ride. This thing ripps! I'm still speachless.
Signed the paper work and trucked it 3 hrs home as it 42 degrees and raining.
Currently working on a farkel list. if you have any wisdom, please share.

Yeah, get yourself some waterproof rain gear and get out there and break her in!

Just picked up my new 990R less than a week a go. Added bags, crash bars, and fastway pegs. Almost knocked off 500 miles already. Can't wait to do some real riding on it. Thing is a beast.

Where'd you get it? I just picked up a 990 Adventure for similar reasons. I've been a lurker for several years but now have jumped into the fray. I'm looking to farkle mine up as well. I lived in Olympia for many years and now live in Portland. Cheers

I bought it from Powersports in Sublimity Oregon. Traded in my 06 640A. paid $13,499 and they gave me $6k for my 640. I couldn't say no to that deal.
