Hey Mikezilla,

What tires are you running on that SMT? I have been running Scorpion syncs on my SM since purchase but they don't make them anymore. Those seem to have a similar tread type to them. How do they handle on an all around basis?

Yes I remember, I think it was a picture from your bike that made me buy the alloy sump guard (which I still haven't managed to mount)

Thanks for the offer, I love the south of France, been there a couple of times, twice with my '09 SMT. Unfortunately this year time is limited, so I will only make it to the middle of France, most likely I am heading to the Correze

I had them on my 950SM and absolutely loved them. After I wore out one set I replaced with the same for round 2.

2012 smt 990

Fell off this bike at around 75 mph so I did a little touch up on the paint.
Added a Cox rad. guard, axle, foot peg and frame sliders, orange goodies, and I have a Rottweiler intake system coming for it.
Great bike. I like it much better than the 2010 Duc Multi I had before.

Sweet!

They don't make D616's for my Vstrom. Looks like a great tire for supermotos. And Vstroms.

I do miss her. I miss the power, comfort, and styling. Not so much the maintainance and weird stuff going wrong. Still have the Bonnie, but plan on trading up on my vstrom to a tiger, but these damn SMT's and ADV's keep catching my eye....

Thanks!! OK lets go down the line then, The covers are Carbon fiber decal, as with the rest of the bike. All vinyl wrap and layers. That piece was custom, chopped from an SMR I am told. And Lastly the 616's are amazing. I have had them on the track and they are sticky as flypaper, but they also will break free if ya want em to with a little clutch pop. I'm impressed with them, but I am eying a set of the new Q3's
