The orange travel tool!

Some pics of the big one while some touring around the italian/french alps...

The 950/990 is the perfect choice for travling offroad and makes always a lot of fun

Thanks! my first time sharing photos on here! & I have a lot, considering doing RR on my Alaska trip. Yup, rode for three weeks with jus sheepskin on a stock R seat. I tried a couple of different seat pad set-ups, sheepskin was the best...but seemed to wear out considerably after a week in the saddle everyday. Wish I woulda bought a airhawk seat cushion, I refused to spend $650 on a seat, as that woulda almost covered all my fuel expense for that trip. I'm a cheap ass as you can tell by my $15 aux fuel tank set-up

Played most of the morning on dirty singletrack/atv trails, then hit the highway home.



I know, I know- get a skidplate.

AJ - Sweet set-up you purchased there. TKC 80s on the tires? How do they ride? I've had them on a GSA and like them, new to the 990s so curious.

Gonna put storage on the left side there? Not affiliated but just an FYI - For those TT racks, If you get a CJ tool box, you'll have to have the rear brace tabs rewelded lower for it to fit. I've got a CJ fuel tank but think they're set-up about the same size. No big deal, cost me about $30. Just ask them to put the top of the tab where the bottom is now. Works great.

Now you need an Excel REAR rim and HD powder coated stainless spokes to match the front. Come to think of it, I owe you those doo-dads... on its way soon, along with all the other goodies and your luggage dude. Glad you made it safe!!

Yeah tkc 80 rear as Kip already said. Rode great at 80-85 for the whole ride
home. No noticeable vibration, haven't tried it offroad yet but I'd use the tires again. Thanks for the heads up on the cj storage box as I plan on ordering one. Thanks again to Kip for an awesome bike that couldn't have been set up better.
