New to the SD crowd...

Postby Davinci » Sun Feb 10, 2019 4:01 am

Just brought home a new to me 08 SD. Bought it from a buddy of mine who scored an amazing deal on a new 1290R.

Moving up to the SD from a DRZ 400SM, this should be a hoot.

Will post up some pics after I take a couple of decent ones.

Hey Davinci,

Welcome in!

Lots of information to be had in this forum. The 990 has been around since 2005 so you may need to look deep into the forum's bowels as many, if not all, questions have been answered before.

Nice looking bike you have there.
Ride Hard,

Comrade: Welcome aboard. 2008 was a great vintage.

Hi and welcome,

The SD990 is sweet bike, as is the DRZ400SM. I have the full fat 'E' version as my trail bike. 8)

Thanks guys.

I've been lurking around here gleaning information as soon as I knew I was buying it. Luckily, it's belonged to one of my good friends/riding buddy since it was new, and as is obvious, he kept it well maintained.

I'll be "blacking" it out in the near future (have CF tank panels enroute) Of course there's an R&G tail tidy and some aero signals for up front waiting to be installed.

I do like the atmosphere in this forum.
