I have one on order. I was looking on up grading my GS and rode the new water cooled. Really liked it . Have been riding bmw's for 10 years and let me say I take a lot of convincing to leave the motorad stable. Well I have never bought a bike without a test ride and never will but was lucky enough to be offered a ride on a dealers personal 1190 r. I fell in love with it within 5 minutes. It had knobbies and Akro fitted, did some off road on the test as well. I'm sold on this thing. Now waiting for a phone call within a couple weeks to pick it up. Great review burren rider.
I only need 14 hp to ride around oz ...the rest is wheelspin
