LOL I just came off an xr600 onto a 950a. The new beast is a lot of weight when not moving but once you get used to it it is really rewarding. Its funny though I remember when I was thinking of getting my xr and forum guys were saying THAT was too big and heavy for real off-road work. I wonder what they'd say about my new choice?!?

Take the time to set up the suspension. The owners manual has all the base settings. Mine were all over the place from the dealership. Makes a big difference.

990ADV in OZ

Well at last have a pic to post,

This is one of only two White 2012 990ADV in the whole of Australia...

KTM OZ has stopped importing the 990 so I begged the dealer to get one in & KTM Oz brought 2 White & 6 Blue(Think)

Love it, just need to Farkle it up now...
It already has the Springs, Scotts Dampner, Triple Clamp & Risers, & of Course the Renazco Seat.. Thankyou James & Sonia...

Super nice! And a very tidy application to boot!

Got a Crispy Designs custom livery for a new-to-me 990, in the works m'self (no prizes for guessing which flavor of logos it'll feature ). If it's half as well done as that (and I'm sure it will be), I'll be chuffed to bits.

Thanks for getting me even more giddy that I already was. Pics as soon as it happens. Probably even whilst it's happening.

Hi guys.
Here go some pics of my bike with the Crispy Designs Decal Kit we have worked with Christian. He does a really great job with these decals.
And he sent it to Argentina and it was all ok.

I also have the high fender decals, but I couldn't go to get the fender yet ...

Ready to fit the decals:


Fitted !




































Cheers!
