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:

Agreed, Roxtar, really great-looking bike


Nice bike Roxtar.
I could start a thread like this for every time I hit the happy button on my DR650.

Me too! My bike is just... :love4:

:imaposer: just playing with the guys who constantly yarp on about a bikes weight when it gets released.  :laughing4:

 :lol8: Although can we just appreciate the fact that it's 5kg lighter than a Transalp...  >:D :pot:
Still miss my Transalp though - fantastic bike.

And great post OP! A mate's dad bought a 990 brand new in 2008 and I remember drooling every time I saw it. Now I finally own one and it pays to stop & appreciate it and the privilege of riding it.

She sure is purdy...

The 990 has to be the most iconic shape of all time, in some ways its a pity it changed.
Look at all the bikes competing in the Dakar. Most, if not all, have a similar design to the 990 look.

I miss mine......
