It might not be as comfy on road as some of the other class members, but every time I take her off road I can't stop smiling. This thing is is just a beast.

I feel precisely the same about mine.

Newish 2012 Adventure R - Building a Beast - Mostly Pics

Inmates:

With great heartache I sold my 2004 Adventure this past winter - 10 years old - well ridden and kinda worn out.




There was only one thing that could fill the hole in my heart (and garage). The 2012 Adventure R was calling my name.



I found a perfect pre-owned (3000 miles, not a scratch on it) bike for sale at Pro Caliber Motorsports in Bend Oregon. Good purchase, cool guys.

From the trial and error of building my 2004 950 - This time, I knew exactly how to build the beast.



Rebuilding begins:








Mechanically complete




Paint - Goal was to re-create the look of the Silver 950

Wanna know a secret? I like Silver! Can you tell from the bike, wall, floors, etc?

My therapist says I would benefit from more color in my life...but I digress....




Don't mess with the the Bulldog - Trained Killer.








All that's missing now is dirt, scratches and dings.

Let the fun begin!

Looks good

Great job on the build. You will be glad to hear your old 950 will be back on the road next week! You won't recognize it though. I'll send you some pics.

Where did you find that light bar mount. I need one for my 990.

Hope your all healed up and riding again

The road out of Aspen to Independence Pass finally opened and I could not resist. The 1190 may be nice but I love my 990!!!!
