If Budget allowed Id have a 1190

1190 R is probably my next bike. It really has few problems when you think about it. It's just more expensive IMO

I'd be pissed to have an 1190 with those problems

If a Manufature bills a bike as Tubless, then they had better have it figured out before production. That Yamaha Super Ten is looking better and better by the day. Or just the tubes I got in My 990
