I was just thinking as I started browsing OC that it might be time for a separate 1190 forum...and then I stumbled onto this thread.

Time for the 1190 to leave the nest.

It's engine configuration is vastly different from the Boxer GS, hence, parallel universe. The older F650GS is still in beasts.

If the 1190 was an inline four, it would make more sense to split. If KTM comes out with an adventure oriented 700 cc triple or some such thing, it would go to beast for a while, and if it took over beasts, then maybe like the F800 it would get moved in, and OC would get divvied.

If you're gonna use the GSPOT analogy, use it correctly...
So under that analogy, you should split orange crush, because the puerile drivel of the 1190 owners is taking over, you are contradicting yourself.

Reading the "Why I cancelled my winter in Mexico" thread has me thinking maybe 990 and 1190 owners have more in common than I thought!

Can we split the forums between normal KTM owners and world traveler's who don't prepare, can't ask nicely for help and like to whine about it?

Yeah, I'm feeling the same way. Each time I log on I have to search through 1190 threads that have no interest to me. It's gotten to be too much. There is lot's of other good sections on here so the site is still of a great source of info.

What's the big deal ? Already some of the 9xo guys have pitched in to help out the 1190 owners. As requested way back, if it involves the 1190 the threads title will mention that . Skip over it and look at the threads that your interested in. No one can be that lazy. There are at most two pages on OC at anyone time . When the replacement for the 1190 rolls out you can be sure the new bike will get the majority of attention. It's the way it is and always has been. Someday you guys might actually buy a 1190 and think about all the good info that will be available to you. Read the back post. It's been hashed and re-hashed and the decision has been made and posted here to leave OC combined

^^^^^^^^^
Voice of reason!

I seem to recall (not on this level) some whining when the 990's arrived. Luckily there was quite a bit of crossover.

Try scrolling for SE stuff,,, you don't see us SE owners whining we should have a separate section.
