With any luck, "LukasM" will see this thread. He is a very knowledgeable guy (with all bikes), and has a relative who actually owns one of these (which has given him some quality "hands-on" time with this machine/690RR).

As I'm sure you already know, that frame is pretty standard on most "true" rally bikes. I don't think that the frame has as much to do with crashing as it does with getting the weight off the bars (thereby preventing some crashes ).

Good Luck. I hope that you get one, and post pics. when you do.
I spent all my money on motorcycles, 4X4's, whiskey, and women...The rest I just wasted. (edited to fit/original phrase by "WIBO")
