Good news:

My new 2012 990 was delivered today. 276 miles on the clock





Bad news:

ABS light remains on, and no speedo. Ground cable looks good, battery leads on tight, everything looks to be plugged in, so it goes to the shop tomorrow for what should be a new front sensor.

How is that Laminar Lip working for you? I don't love the looks, but I'm seriously thinking about getting one. How tall are you?

Took the Baffles out of the Akro's.....should have done it sooner, no louder but much deeper.

Tuned the suspension for a slightly firmer ride.

Went for a lap around the TT course with a pillion for the first time...great fun !

Starting my first valve check

I am taking my time. The stablemate's valve check has one or two fewer steps.

WSHOC, enjoy the little guy while you can, my wife and I took our youngest to college last week. Can't believe the nest is empty all ready. Seems just yesterday they were all rolling around in those little walker things.

Noticed the link in your signature to a RXC. Note the link in my sig to a RXC. Brought back those feelings of seller's remorse.

tank range

I've had my 2012 (bought new in 2013) 990 adventure for a couple of months. I got the run in miles done and it had its first service. I have a trip to the Alps planned for next month on the bike and wondered about tank range.

I set off with 147 miles on the trip and a fuel can with a few litres in the top box. The fuel light had just come on. I was expecting maybe another 30 miles but I got all the way to 200.4 miles before it gave up on me. I was delighted by this!

So what you are saying is that you got 53 miles after the light had come on? Did you wait for it to stall?
