Better late than never. Picked up a left over 2012 990R last August from Bentley's near Pittsburgh. I've been lusting after a 990 for about 8 years, finally pulled the trigger... I should've done it a long time ago!
This was the first day I had her, it was the perfect day!




Try and keep her clean, but she loves getting dirty


I've made a few mods along the way...



A whole bunch of wrenching, I really enjoy working on this bike compared to any of the bikes I have worked on before! And damn is she sexy naked.


Have been doing a whole bunch of adventuring on her.


And this is how she sits today




Hands down the most fun I've ever had on 2 wheels. I love this bike!

Nice, that's a Remus 2 into 1 system ? My next bike will be a 990R if I can find one after my 950 S, still a long time before that happens xD.

Its a Remus roxx 2 into 1. I like it, with or without the baffle it still sounds good.

Sweet....

I've always liked that color combo. Just a thought, but as that's already a pretty big top box, when you're not riding 2up, I'd figure out a way to move the 15# rotopax to the front of the box. Take it from a continual overpacker, that 15# feels like 50#'s when you're picking the bike up in the dirt. That from a guy who always falls over in the dirt.

That looks great. Did you use a wrap to cover the original panels or did you get them spray matt black. Can see an out line of the original decal on the side panels so thinking wrap.
