When in doubt, PIN IT! It may not help, but it'll sure end the suspense...

new to me 990 Dakar

After having fun over six summers and 50 000 km with SE I changed to 990 Dakar. After washing her I gave her a new seat and put some wax on . Next week must change front tyre,engine oil and air filter... Hope this one will work as well as my previous SE did .....
br, Tapsa and 990Dakar

Honestly, I don't ride my 950 much these days, but I got it out a couple of weeks ago on some local roads, and it still puts a smile on my face.

Welcome back. gaspipe

You had drifted away from the OC around the time i joined, but i went thru your 950s build way back when and gained a lot of info as to what i was getting into with these bikes.

So thanks for that and the time you spend moderating this site.

Ive had a blast with mine. The loaded down Behemoth.
