1090 R - Starting a new relationship
« on: November 13, 2017, 05:44:20 pm »
So i was finally convinced to let go of my fanatical, excessive and compulsive 990 addiction and have just bought a brand new 1090 R.  :) 8)

Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

 :thumleft: :thumleft: Thanks Cocky

I started the Adventure biking thing in 2010 and owned 4 Adventure baaiks . . . No I was lucky enough to have owned 4 of the BEST adventure baaik ever built. >:D Started with a 2005 Model 950 Adventure, then a 2008 990 Adventure, then 2012 990 Adventure and then current 2012 990 Adventure ARRRRR. So yeah i have a bit of a bias towards the 990 and will off course compare the new KTM to the 990  ;) But more of that later 1sly some detail and peechers of the pleasure and also painful (To the wallet) process to get this new baaik grondpad ready  :thumleft:

Headlight Protector from Hyde. Liked this one for the little Orange piece at the bottom but was thinking that that was orange lens which it turned out not to be. It is sticker, so not giving me the effect of Orange i wanted. Will probably change to the full orange one. I prefer to be seen on the commute on the Gauteng highways

Exan silencer  >:D >:D >:D >:D I did not last 2 days riding with standard silencer.
There should be a law against riding a Vtwin with that piece of rubbish.  :lol8:

So now with pipe and carrier plate so the Top box is back on.

nice looking bike, congrats!  :thumleft: :drif:

would love to hear your feelings on how it compares to the 990A R

the full orange headlight protector works well, clips off easily at night and is nice and bright if you ride with DRL OFF during the day  :thumleft:

Congratulations, that is a Beaut and I have heard only good things about the 1090. It makes a lot of sense to pick that one out of the current Bunch.

SW Motech bar raisers. I know there is very diff opinions on this but i have always liked riding with raisers.
And their raisers have also come a long way in the looks category   ;)
