KFhunter, do yourself a favor and score a test ride...
I am a GS rider and let me tell you that the GS is a very good street bike that will go off road. The 990 is a very good "big" dirt bike that goes on the tarmac to your favorite off road trail. I'm waiting for the 1190 R to come to the US to replace my GS Adventure. While my GS has been faithful, as I age it seems to be getting heavier off road, so come on KTM and import the 1190 R.
It is said, some lives are linked across time, connected by an ancient calling that echoes through the ages.

Currently riding a 2004 R1150GS Adv. but a very long list of others over the 30 + + years of riding
