Awesome bike, one of my favorite paint schemes.
Good for you guys (I'm assuming there might be some 2 up in your future)
2 up?



I might be in trouble. Somebody slipped a leg over it and declared the standard 990 height to be about the same as a klr of hers.

Perfek!

You kids have fun now.


P.s. I'm still searching for a 2 up for my stolen Dakar, so if you do some 2 up, let me know what you think.

I'll try to take the 950 up Donner if you take the 990.

We rode a 950 2 up around white rim 4 years ago. I thought it handled pretty well. I can only offer heresay on passenger comfort.

To be honest, for the amount of difficult off road I will be doing, the regular Adventure is a better bike for me. I have other choices in the stable for single track.

She told me about that now that I think of it. She said her lower back got tired and that her suggestion would be to have some form of back rest on it. That's always an do able option.

This is just like marrying a lovely and sweet young lady, and just before you leave for your honeymoon, you stumble across the porn videos she made in college on some internet site.
