Apache Trail






I haven't ridden in weeks due to a minor knee surgery, but I felt well enough for some easy riding on Sunday.
So I headed out onto the Apache Trail.





My 2008 990 Adventure loves to pose.





Yeah, but it's all washboard...





Then the sunset happened.





Good Night!

The wife and I took a nice ride after work tonight, she is really liking the 950! She has always been upset with me for selling my VFR a few years ago but now she likes this bike even more.

No pix in use; thankfully haven't needed it. We've rigged it up and the kids have pulled various things around the yard, no pix of that.

The kit:



This is 160 feet of ~1300 lb 4mm; 100' of 6mm takes almost exactly the same space. I like the reach of the longer rope, once you start creating MA with pulleys it uses up rope in a hurry.

The 4mm is harder on the hands, but a clove hitch on a 'biner helps that significantly.

Zipped up. In addition to the stuff in the pic above, there's a big 4mm loop (about 5' diameter), another about 3', and a few odds n ends. The bag is about 11x5x4 inches.

Thought I would unravel waiting for this beast to arrive. Can't wait to run it in. Stop missing 690R.......now.



Looks at home in the garage...



Won't stay this way for long.

Hey thanks - look forward to it. As for the trunk, it must be ripped.

I'm sure we'll run into each other at some point. Hard to miss another 990 out and about!

Wow that's a beautiful photo. Would you have it in 2560x1600 so I can make it a wallpaper?
