Hey all, This is my first post here i think although ive been following for a long time.

I am getting an 1190R in a few weeks so ive been following anything related to it to see if theres anything major i need to do before i start riding hard on it.

Ive come from a dirtbiking (KTM 300, KTM 525) and Quad (Banshee, yfz450) background which isn't exactly the same thing as an adventure bike, but similar enough. Any motorcycle or motorized machine is going to need some nuts and bolts re-checked in the first few hundred miles. The skid plate tends to loosen up more because it takes the biggest beating, even on the street it can easily pickup harmonics and start vibrating.

At first i was scared when i saw all the problematic threads, but they all seem like some basic mods take care of everything.

Cheers!
