There are still a couple of appearance issues that need attention, but the moto is ready for the road.

Here it is with its younger brother.

They will be taking trips together in the future.



While it belongs to a family member now, I will still give y'all an update on it every now and then.

We had a reunion of the motos. We just completed a six day camping moto trip to Colorado and New Mexico. Billy's 990, (my old 990) has almost 40,000 trouble free miles!!!







Plans for Alaska and Labrador/Newfoundland are in the works.

We have been out riding together again. The 2007 990 Adventure is still doing great. I never had any problems with this moto and my cousin loves it.



It is a bit difficult to see the odometer, but it reads 41,929 miles now. Plus he has over 400 miles to get back home.

82 300 kms on my 2006, only thing done to it, was a water pump shaft as preventive measure, at 30 000 kms. Only change I've done is 2-1 wings. The bike runs like clock, will probably see 100 000 kms this summer...
