And that's one of many reasons why I did! 65 pounds is a BIG deal off-road. Besides the fact that the 990's (and most KTM's for that matter) look god-awful fugly.

Besides. When you compare bikes, you compare the 990 Adv and the R1200GS. Those two bikes are in the same weight/power/market class. Not the F800GS.
Are you scared to compare the 800 to the 9x0? Why not compare them, it's more of a dirt bike then the beastly 1200.
