So, while it is cool that you won, it would seem that there really weren't any serious threats to the mighty 990.

I love my 990 but it's not like it was driving itself

No worries, just had to get a jab in on the machines from Germany. I have a feeling you can easily outride this Bastard.

Hi together!

I've been watching this thread for a long time and enjoyed all these nice pics from your Adventures.
Now, I think it's time to show my 990 S!

That was when I just picked up my new (second hand) 990 S from the dealer. The other 990 S is the one of my friend.







Then I installed some new parts on my KTM:








And one more with rim stickers...


That's it.... next steps will be to install the same parts on my friends KTM

Check the coolant level though, looks a bit low in the pics.....

Have fun,
Marc

Now you are not a team mate with your friend anymore, your bike is more good looking...

We are in the planning stages of this year's Dinosaur Run so I've been going through a bunch of photos from past Dinosaur Runs. I figured I'd throw some pics here for those suffering cabin fever like I am























...and I'm not sure why but I think this one is my current favorite
