Tan, you just made my day. Sounds like you live in a fish bowl! Enjoy your adventure down to Starbucks in your goretex outfit.

PS! Don't forget the makeup :-)

The video is made for entertainment purpose. And it looks to me like they are having allot of fun. When i watch this i am thinking: "i want to be on that thing" That's their goal, to make people enthusiastic for the bike, and that's why they can testride it as a journalist.

Again, fun. The big plus of this bike is that it's like a swiss-knife. The thing has pottential in any form of riding. Track, road, dirt. It does not matter.

These guys in the video can put their knee down and i find even wearing full leathers shows that you are not an off road or enduro rider . sorry jornulists but its true .
The purpose of the video is not to show the off-road capabilities, it's for showing the road potential. Afterall, it's in the all-road segment. The vid shows how much of a hooligan bike the 1190 is, a true KTM.

Mate why such loser comment ? Why can't you handle that the statement I just write is completely true!

Why is that I live in a fish bowl! don't make me laugh you are ridiculous. If you got nothing to say just shut up, if you got something to say just write it up like a man. Do you even got a bike because I think you don't have a clue about leathers and textile. I can teach you free!

Fucking loser

entertainment ? It's a bike test :) people will listen, watch and think about buying it in future. But yes it is to show that it's still a hologan bike.

Why such comment ? You are not stupid but if you say you are stupid may be you are, however I try to not offence people as soon as they don't comment like losers. Where do you come to this comment mate ? Tell me cause there is two people here bulling me and you guys are losers.

I didn't say I know everything but I share what I know, morons like you guys don't read understand and can't digest it. Then write comments like this and make yourself look stupid.

Just checked my centre stand bolts, both were loose and the same on a mates 1190 R. Could have some thing to do with the scrapping ?

I've had my centre stand drag on the ground while two-up and neither of us are heavy (me 73Kg wife 7 stone).

I've also had the rear bottom out while two-up which surprised me. So I did some checks.

I have an 1190 roadie without ESD (manual suspension), this has a different rear spring rate to the ESD models. From the info in the hand-book I measured the static and rider sag with, (from memory) the spring pre-load set to 4 turns. After careful measurement I arrived at 9 turns on the pre-load adjuster to get the correct static sag. This also gave the correct rider sag as per the hand-book.

Has anybody else tried setting the sag as per the hand-book?

To achieve the correct sag with the correct number of turns on the pre-load adjuster would require a 2.5mm spacer under the spring.

My seat of the pants feeling is that the rear spring is a little soft. Has anybody else a view on this?

I know the ESD has a different spring rate to the manual version and I think it's softer so I can't try one of these.

As an aside I have shortened the centre stand to make it easier to use, especially when loaded.

Interested to hear other views and of course a soft spring will contribute to stand dragging.

4. every riders wheelie but a test journalist don't have to wheelie with all bikes ! they wheelie even when they test ride a Goldwing ! what is the point ! of course adventure or any rider can wheelie .

Are you seriously have no brain to actually understand anything I write ?
you are embarrassing yourself there is nothing wrong what I said and they are all true.
Tan, it's quite difficult for me to understand what you write, and I'm a native English speaker... it must be incredibly difficult for a Norwegian to understand.

Leather provides much better abrasion resistance than textiles do, so that test rider is perfectly entitled to wear leather while riding like that on a lovely dry sunny day.

We can ride any bike however we like. There are no rules; at least I was not given a copy of them when I purchased my bike.

Dude laughed at you with his ass. I think that means he............. wins?

Wanna wear leathers? Go ahead.
Wanna wear Gore Tex? Have at it.
Wanna go without a helmet? Be my guest.
Wanna take a Harley offroad? OK, now I'm getting ridiculous. (Baja 100s not included)

It's your bike, ride like you wish.
