that is a giant loop bag. I use it when I am going on day trips and I think I might be having to dab. I also have some Ortleib dry bags to use on long trips were there will be significant off road riding. The Gobi hard bags are only used when I do minimal off road for a long trip. I folded the leg under one of the hard bags on the snow ride in January, and don't want to do that again.

I forgot to mention that I mostly work from home. When I do ride around town, the 990 is a lot more fun in traffic than the KLR was. Going to the grocery store has never been so much fun

My 300 and 450 are also plated, but certainly not much fun on the street.

NTTAWWT, but I pefer the challenge to match the equipment when possible. Just my nature. I used to do a lot of mountain climbing, but usually didnt take the most difficult route up, and I did not carry 100 pounds of extra gear for the challenge. I suspect that after youve been thru a few orthopedic surgeries your outlook will be a bit different.

.....when in heavy traffic, instead of lanesplitting you just mount the nature strip....

Oh Yeah

You know you are a 950 owner when after a 150 mile ride with 2 06 950 ADV's and one 07 Ducati Monster you pull in to the drive way and the neighbors wife says " OOHHH the Ducati must be the fast one !" The 2 950 owners start laughing and the Ducati owner just hangs His head IN SHAME!

Lol my point of view too. I love the crazy looks and that "you rode THAT here?". Cause then I get to answer, yeah its too heavy to carry.

A lot of times my wife is on the back. Just adds another level of difficulty.

When the others in your riding group note after a ride on tarmac and gravel that you have a tendency to speed up when on gravel. :) {True. I was told that the other day.}

Hear Hear!

We go much faster off road than we do onroad.
No cops!


On the dirt on the way into Maybel last Friday I was averaging somewhere between 90-110.
It was painful to get to the paved road into town where the speed limit was 35 (and you didn't dare do 36 as it was a one horse town )
