Aussie 950/990 Owners Thread

Im surprised there hasnt been one of these yet... and much needed i think, for the most versatile motorcycle out there.

Post up your pride & joy.

Mods...
H&B Crash bars, H&B Carrier system, Heated grips, GPS RAM mount, AJ Plastics windscreen, Black dog bash plate, EGO Barkbusters, PIAA 510 ATB Aux lights, HID 50w H3/H7 Headlights, Spare road wheelset 19/17 with Galfer wave rotors.

All too easy to dump money into these... but smile per $ is up there.

Maybe.
Its good to have a central location for questions for them, aussie jetting, where to buy bits locally, etc.
I know i'd like to know where to get the fittings for the facet 40171...

and mine

this is number three for me:

My first - a silver 2003 950 Adv
my second - an orange 2004 950 Adv
and my current love orange 2005 950 Adv

I have 19"/17" wheels also and this alone transforms the bike into the most versatle bike in the world - IMO of course..

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

Some of the stacks I have had would have disintegrated any tank had I not had the crash bars.
