need a stablemate for 990 adv r

Hi all!
I just sold my 690 enduro r and are looking for a bike to take the place.
The problem is What bike is a god complement for an 990 adv.

I sold the 690 because i can almost do the same riding with the 990.

So inmates whats your opinion on bikes.

What are you looking to do on the new bike? Currently your range is in between jet ski and snow mobile

true

my wife has the 350 freeride she fooling round with.

I would like to go little motard, but most very technical single tracks.
And most off all snowmobile track with studded tires.

i was in for a trial bike,,,but i dont now if i can hit snowmobile tracks with it.

the freeride is to soft in the engine.

hey blakken. i have a freeride 350 and a 690 enduro R. after getting the freeride I started to realise just how limited the 690 was. just bought a husaberg fe570 and I'm hoping it will be a much better fit as a ds bike. if you've got a 990 and a freeride, I can't imagine a better bike to fit in between them

Ive got it! Find a restored Honda ATC 90 3 wheeler with go cart tires on it. It will do anything(more or less mostly less)

Check out the Ossa Explorer, same crossober type bika as a freeride, not soft at all on engine and 164 pounds. Love mine enough that I sold the 200exc which is arguably one of the best tight woods bikes ever.

Well, I just added a 690R because it'll do things my 990 can't, not a big deal but go figure.

I need a Christini, pick your flavor http://www.christini.com/bikes/christini-awd-450-ds AWD rules and next on my list!


Maybe a nice Christmas present to me?

I'd recommend a 450/500 and a 300 smoker, but I'm biased.
