The wife borrowed my 990....

... now she's giddy with power.

I upgraded from a KLR 650 last fall. I have a feeling that her KLR may not be much longer for our garage.

I have 2 seats for the 990. A factory low seat and a seat concepts. Perhaps it's not a good thing that seats can be swapped in a matter of seconds?

Tough way to live.

If your wife steals your 990, you have the RIGHT wife...

I think she needs a "big girl" bike for our anniversary. The KLR650 was her first bike when she started riding 5 years ago.

She looks tall enough for her (you) to upgrade to an SE.
