Darn near stock with an un-mounted 690 fender for a high option, wider (and taller?) Renthal bars and KTM tank bag. I turned a 3.5 hour return trip into a 6 hour trip because I was having way too much fun. May have hit top speed on a deserted but pristine back road, drove past a state park....immediately turned around and explored (read: had no idea where I was headed) until I was stopped by a helpful ranger (note to self: buy park permit ). And that's why I bought a 990-went from very high speeds to mud/loose sand in an hour!

Just looked at a map-I was in Gus Engeling State Park NW of Palestine.

Congrats! That's a nice ride you have there. Let the farkling begin....
