I just saw that and came back over here to correct myself. Very nice.
I always liked that blue theme of his.
I'd have to be a much better rider to get away with something as racy as that. I'll just have to make do wearing my LPR sweater.

I asked him if I could use one of his colour scheme from his dakar 2013 run up bike.
He said yes so I got crispy designs to do a full coverage decal set for me.

Way too long a video. But, at least no annoyingly loud music-type noise crap.
It's not my fault if you waste part of a day watching this. But, then I'm in a little cloth covered cube so pretty much anything this side of clowns juggling kittens is watchable.

That's what I do too. Front tires are expensive. 1-4 gears help keep wear down. Haha.

I'm sorry to say that my Orange Coolaid addiction (at least the 990) is over, it's just too big for what I want to do. It's for sale over in the flea market

Will look at orange singles though :)

I know how you feel. I sold my 990 2 years ago and picked up a 625SXC which I am head over heels in love with. Yet not a day goes by that I don't miss my 990. I will be getting another one as soon as I can afford it. Think twice before you watch someone else ride your big twin away! Worst. Feeling. Ever.
