Whislter is a cool place. I might have to hit you up on sending me another shirt from the Whistler Brewery, it was my favorite shirt and has worn out. Its the one that says "Draft Beer Not People" on the back. Assuming they still sell that one.

Picked up My New 990 a few weeks back, I would have liked to have gotten an "R" type but these are all we can get here so I'll Live with it happily and build it a bit to suit my wants and needs. She just had her 1st service done and I have parts from Slaven's and BDC on the way. Had a few other bikes so the "Mod Bug" is gonna carry over too My first two purchases were what I think are important ones; Another cooling fan for the right side and a metal skid plate. Got a Scotts Stabilizer, Fork springs, kickstand re-location kit on the way too. High fender conversion is planned too.

I'm Loving the 990 and can't I wait to un-cork her and open up her lungs a bit. She looks good next to Her little sister (My '10 530 EXC) too

Looking forward to Riding, Meeting with and sharing the Adventure Comraderie with you. Thanks for having me.

I'll be sure to update my info on the Tent Space list too since I'm back here on ADV.

Just picked up this 08 a week and a half ago and put on the new luggage a few days ago.

Had to test it properly.

Nice! What luggage is that? It looks a lot less bulky than the h&b boxes mine came with. I got rid of them because they were just so freaking wide. Those look good!

I also much prefer these to the Gobi's. The dealership actually had Gobi's in stock, but I had him order these. They are the KTM quick release racks and black aluminum boxes... which are simply rebranded SW-Motech Quick-Lock racks (the whole rack is quick release, which I LOVE! No more hoops hanging there all the time) and Trax 37 liter panniers. The top box is just a $17 four pistol gun case.

The boxes don't feel super durable, they're pretty thin metal, but I love the looks, and I'm just going to hope they hold up well. They won't be mounted for most of my off-roading. But I'm hoping to get to CO and UT this fall, so they will be tested!
