Switch gear feels great high beam is in a funny spot but who cares. I rode the BMW 1200 LC a few days back and actually ordered one because I was told all the 1190's were finished, but the KTM gods smiled on me and all I can say is "its not even in the same ball park" if you ride a 990 you will know what I'm talking about. Obviously the dudes in Austria have been reading this forum because they have ticked all the boxes when it comes to the 1190 well done KTM you guys are fantastic
did you get it from INMOTO ?croydon ? i got it from there mine :)

Being 6'8" with a 40" inseam, anyone got a set up they like with simular dimensions? On my current bike I have 2" bar risers with 2" drop peg kit and pivot pegs to make my bike more user friendly for me. Are there current products on the market to set the 1190 R up the same way ?
