Curious about the mounting of your aux-gas cans in front of your bags....
what size are they? and do you have any pics of the mounting brackets you used?
Thanks

New 990 Adventure owner

I just purchased a new 2012 990 Adventure which I delivery of this Saturday Feb 16th. With my other bikes being a XR600R and DRZ400S.

All brands and models have their own little quirks.

What can I expect from big orange crush?

What is the typical fuel mileage and range on highway, and on fireroads?

I have heard stories about the fuel mapping having to be upgraded to what is on the Adventure R?

What tires work best for 80/20, 50/50, and 20/80 Highway/Dirt?

How confortable will this be to tour on for long distance. My old BMW was a work horse and was pretty predictable. With the setup I had I could be in the saddle for hours with no discomfort. Any suggestions on ergonomics?

When I get a picture of her I will post. I will be the guy with the huge grin on my face.

Norsk62 screwed with this post 02-17-2013 at 05:40 PM Reason: attache photo of new bike

new to me 08 ADV990S

I have finally crossed over and tasted the orange Kool aid. Took my 1st KTM ride today. Whew!! That thing is fast and didn't feel that heavy. For just the small amount of ass chewing that my sandwich maker gave me and only a few days on the couch...shoot this bike is well worth it. Maybe I'll take it out on the dirt tomorrow!
