Just have to say it......
« on: January 13, 2020, 02:08:11 pm »
Spent Sunday morning buffing the 990 to a brilliant shine and giving it some generally well deserved TLC as I usually ride the crap out of her on the daily commute.... stepped back and just thought "WOW still cannot believe I own this legend and have the priviledge of enjoying her every day"... At this point in time there is just no other bike I want to own right now :thumleft:

Hope you feel the same 'bout your bike, coz that's how it should be imo... ;) :thumleft:

That is one of the prettiest colours to have on a 990.

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

The 990 has to be the most iconic shape of all time, in some ways its a pity it changed.

Great post.
Lovely bike.


I love my 950. It's just the most beautiful bike ever made.
