Got it back together just in time for spring.

My first big ride on the 990 through Northern NSW this weekend.

Ready to go, waiting for the Germans to start the ride

Lunch stop in Kyogle

On the trails in Richmond Range National Park

Hmmm, something's missing

Here it is, 20km behind us having copped a big hit from a rock

At the Mallanganee Lookout

At the Clarance River

Camp at Jackadgery

The unfortunate start of the long journey home

And the end of the journey, thanks to my wife driving an 800km round trip with the trailer

What happened? Not sure, electrical issue, wouldn't start, jump started and wouldn't charge/keep running, then ok for a few km, instruments and lights went crazy, and wouldn't keep running. Loose wire? Rectifier? Battery???

It took a while but after cutting a deer in half coming off the Magruder in 2010, the cracked and stressed bodywork started to flake paint. After doing all the bodywork repairs and replacing the warped front fender this winter, I painted the bike Porsche guards red.

Sacrilegious? Maybe .... but I like it.

First off road ride of 2013 down the Klienschmidt into Hells Canyon April 4, 2013:

Yesterday testing the new headlight mod before final detailing and paint to windscreen. I'll post more on this light mod in the "What did you do to your KTN today" thread

Throw the sacrilegious to the bonfire...!

Chrisk, I have to say that for my taste, it doesn't completely suit her... it better suited her the deer's blood (RIP)

But hey, who am I...??? You are the one who must like it, so...
