I always say, motorcycles make the world seem a bigger place, but the bike community / industry is definitely something of a village.

Are you still looking for a different bike or will you be coming back for that one?

Curious bout the FCR choke install

very interested in how this went
I would definitly go with FCRs again if I could do this
excellent !

heres the FCR cold air intake box I made from heat resistant phenolc resin like is used on a heat sheild
if I had a choke I would still be running this . It even had a rain baffle at the front where the air comes in

it put out a nice resonant sound like a ducati , had a vacuum hum like a big V8 while revving under load
loved it just could live without a choke

Am curious about the FCR choke ( enrichiner) install, I use two FCR 35's on a Norton and this would make warming up very nice. I think that your enrichener install would be best with a cable operated by the set taken off the CVs. Because there is not an easy way to make extension rods easily reachable ( operate able ) through the air box and fuel tank area. I think you are on to something ! Thanks for the idea.

Snowboard mount!!

I was bored, bought some cheap hardware and found a way to mount my snowboard on my bike! Now I can combine 3 of my favorite activities in one day, snowboarding, riding and drinking!

Needs a wind tunnel test for fine tuning ;)

Yes, it will be interesting to see just how much "lift" you can generate. Provide a cant adjustment and you might just get lift off!

If:

lift+speed > load+drag

anything will fly.

990R tank bag

I designed this tank bag for my 09' 990R. Had a friend stitch it up here in Cambodia. It crowds my Flexx Enduro Hi bars a bit at the moment because I have the high/stabilizer cross bars on now. Parts are coming to fix that, pony express from America. The inside has velcro all around, with moveable compartments like a camera bag for flexibility. I love creating stuff for my bike. It is the second best therapy I know, right behind squeezing the throttle. Thank you God for the privilege of having and using great equipment.

Briliant! And the idea of having velcro on the inside...

Felt my way in to work at 0430 through very dense fog. It's an hour ride, half backroads, half interstate, fog sucked but felt great to be back on the beast after a small mechanical error on my part.

To put it back together I just put the lens in place, held it with some tape, and ran a bead of normal silicone (bath sealant) round the groove.

That's how I repaired my headlight originally (I bought the bike with a cracked headlight reflector) - that was a few years ago and it held up fine. I've just replaced the reflector with one I blagged from another broken unit using the same method.

Sorry I didn't take photos of any of this process, but I took this one of the end result.

I love your quote at the bottom! so true even in any emergency situation, dirt bikes will always have a better chance

We are working on a new gps-mount for 990 Adventure and in this case Garmin Montana.
It will also work with the Zumo, we will also make it for F800GS & XT660Z.
Im developing it together with "crazytok" here at advrider.com.

I will post more pictures when we are finished with the testing.
