I'm impressed with them, but I am eying a set of the new Q3's
Is The Carbon Decal Vinyl Or 3M? I Think I May Copy Cause It Looks Nice.

I like the Givi screen alright. A bit better wind and bug protection than the stock screen. I'm also 6'.
I just did a little run up into WA state today on the SMT. Went from Umatilla to Goldendale on some back road twisties. I don't usually spend too much time in WA cause of all the LEO's you guy's have up there.
Very nice state with great roads though.
If you ever get down here in my country of E. Oregon give me a shout, I'd be happy to show you some GREAT roads down here.
Thanks for the compliment on the bike.

I grew up in Spokane. And yes, fuzz everywhere. Especially north of the Tri cities. I'm all the way up I'm Bellingham. Maybe we could meet up near yakima or something. I just did a sweet ride on the mt loop highway outside of darington. You can google it. Amazing switchbacks and view and not a soul in sight. 75-80 leaning way over. Amazing. My friends and i may head down to oregon as a triall run for alaska. Not sure where we will head though. Also, did you do the rim stickers yourself?

The outer rim stickers were an Ebay thing if I remember right. Not as nice as the inner KTM ones. The KTM ones are much better quality and brighter colored.
That Darington area sounds nice, I haven't been up there.

It was damaged in a lowside. Still functional so I won't spend 350 bucks for a new set. I think I may try to paint on some truckbed liner or latex or something to smooth it out and waterproof it a bit more. We will see, I am a very lazy person at times, tons of ideas, just no initiative

1190 smt

While my SMT had its 7500km service I went for a testride with the 1190 Adv.
The engine in that thing is brilliant I loved the power and the way how it makes it. Also the choice of the different mappings is a great option. Also tried out the different suspension settings on the 1190 Adv, but I could live without that option.
Would I trade in my SMT for it? Ehhhh no, I prefer the handling/brakes of the SMT over the 1190 Adv. Also the seating position on the SMT fits my perfectly.
So KTM get me my 1190SMT

Heres the link for the bag. http://www.ktmtwins.com/ktm-690-950-990-rear-tail-bag Its nice because it's expandable by about 2 more inches if you unzip the lower zipper.

You can make your life a lot easier if you route the vent tube above tank base instead of under like in your photo.
That way you can get the cap out of the way pretty much the same as if you didn't have the tank.
