It was meant to be...KTM 990 DAKAR and me.

After 4 years and 50,000 fun filled miles(not all of em up right) on my 950 ADV I felt it was time for a change. I was thinking about going to a K bike because I really liked the one I had and I already have a 1150 GS ADV. BUT before I went to the dark side I had to find out if the 990 ADV was THAT big of an improvement over my 950 ADV.

 

BABY!...I fell in love in less than 5 minutes.

 

 

So Happy Birthday to me

Go Orange or GO HOME!

 

 

Don't be jealous GS/Yammie/Triumph owners I still have to change the oil on this thing.

Larry, Happy Birthday to you!!! I love it!!

 

Yes, the orange pull is strong!!!! I feel it quite a bit I must admit.

 

I'm at work today so if I get more than a few minutes I'll call to sing horribly to you for your birthday but if I don't consider your ears fortunate as I am off saving someone from themselves!!

I can't wait to see a photo of you two ON IT in Torrey! Can someone handle that request? :)

 

Second to that I look forward to seeing all three of you in person this year.

 

Happy Birthday, indeed! You deserve to play. L too!

Nice bike.

 

Is that a funeral fire for the 950 in the background?

 

 

LOL

 

 

The 950 is at the Orange Hospital using it 9th life.

Is the oil change difficult?

With most bikes you removed the old oil from the bike and put the new oil back.

 

With the 950/990 ADV you remove the bike from the oil and build the bike back up around the new oil.

 

:rofl:

 

But it is worth it.

 

You are welcome to take it for a ride at Torrey.

Any monkey can do an oil change on a Yammie. :wave:

Monkey's don't need their oil changed, even if they ride a Yammyho.

Whaaat you talkin' bout? I think the oil change on the 990 is almost as easy peasy as the GS, almost. Certainly not hard or time intensive. You must be using the owner's manual. ;)

 

Good for you, bro'. About time you moved on up.
