I parked the big bike dirty and in dire need of a front tire ........ I too have developed a serious distaste for the stock front Pirelli. It hops Like crazy on pavement and then once on gravel it pushes like a bastard. 800 kms yesterday had me convinced I love this bike and hate its front sneakers.


A quick change of bikes on a gravel road had me smiling and my riding partner scared shitless to take my 990 out of second gear. He was so happy to be alive he gave Mother Nature a Handjob!



Two sets of Mitas tires on their way here tomorrow so today the little lady and I took the dirt scooters out for some fun.
3 feet behind me it's 300 ft to the ground .... Gorgeous view.

another 400+ ft drop behind her in this picture.

i was sick of the stock seat after 5 years and finally decided to do something about it. I realised that it lacked support for the butt at the right places so i decided to a bit of DIY re-shaping after buying some car seat foam, cover material etc...








started shaping the extra foam so that the seat is enlarged at the rearward area (where i sit while riding on the highways) at the same time, keeping the narrowness intact up front so that it doesn't hinder while standing up (off-road)..




covered it with some softer top layer foam




and then my favourite colour seat cover material before buttoning it all up with a heavy duty stapler




looks the right shape but i haven't installed it on the bike yet & ridden it. will report later on the results.

oh, and the stock tool bag was in tatters




so i got one made out of leather, actually the mrs got them made for me at her shoe repair shop

Last thursday I changed the front rim on my brand new 990R. I thought I might as well change it, before I break the Behr-shit. The DID-rim from 950SE fits right away with original spokes. For the rear I have a complete 950SE wheel.

Superplush R installed, bike back on the ground.

249.5 mm travel. It's the .5 that makes the difference.

Installed a set of Renthal Carmichael High bars. :) love em.

Way less sweep than stock and with the addition of the Scott's triple and damper it's now finally the perfect height for me while standing and while seated.

Funny how when you ride an identical bike with a few different tweaks you can find exactly what you are looking for.
