Holy crap man, nice bikes. I like the white KTM a lot.

I just checked out this thread and I'm just drooling reading this page alone.

My 990's stable mates are an '08 450 xcr-w (runs great) and an '85 CR500 (that I have to find time to get sorted out).

Just picked it up about a month ago. The PO had the jetting completely wrong for this bike. Got that sorted with an Ivan's jet kit. Now need to work on the suspension. It might very well have the absolute worst factory suspension I have ever ridden. Outside of the 1979 Honda ATC 110 I had as a kid.

I don't think so... go together in a Hansel and Gretel sort of way for those of you who appreciate aesthetics. Finally found an R90S - the 'bike I never had'. Score!

It needs work - hasn't run since 2003, but it's all there and just needs some care. Sorry Beemakilla - this one doesn't need to be killed...

That's would be cool, plus it's good for the economy... starts a whole new obsession and more expensive googling...

The 990 is an ongoing work in progress. So, very happy with the stable mates.



I'm not sure .....but I think I see a spot under the KLR....No, my mistake....must have been a fly just passing through! Nice Shop!!!

For the nasty stuff 1 cylinder is all you need.

My Husaberg FE570



I was supposed to sell my Super Enduro when I bought my Husaberg.
But I really could not separate from this wonderfull bike. It is just too much fun.



But driving the two bikes above is always a big risk. A risk for getting dirty as I cannot keep myself away from mud and dirt roads. So I needed something which is no fun at all driving offroad.
Heavy as hell, bad suspension, no breaking power but the sound of 6 cylinders makes me smile all the times.
My Honda CBX 1000 Z
