My buddy picked up a 990 a few weeks ago.... An overnighter to the San Juans had to be done.

Put three more in it. One across the tire on opposite side of the existing dent, and two 180* on each side of the rim. Then it should balance better.

Not mine, but Geeks.

I would say part of the problem is the TKC-80, very soft sidewall. I run the MT-21 and have avoided the problem for quite some time.

Wrights lake.
Nice ride! I used to take my plated 300exc up to that area. The ride got pretty long on that bike though....must be nice on your beast! Looks as though i may be getting a 950 soon. Wish I still lived in that area to make full use of the bike!

It's about time (page 1000) to show my baby. Nothing special ATM but I 'm in love with her, wishing for the best (off road happiness). Pictures are from my tour to Chios Island (Greece).
