Thanks for the new pics.
Now I'm just wondering what it might cost me to have something similar done to an 1190 here in the States...hmmmm

I genuinely hope it won't be, as you would be missing out on a great bike. Not that the 950/990 isn't a great bike, it is. It's just that the 1190 moves things on in every department.

I would suggest you wait until you get to ride a demonstrator on a decent test ride, the dealers offer that here and hopefully they will Stateside too. Riding at normal speeds up to 90 Mph there is no problem at all, its only if you go over that speed for a prolonged period (say 15 minutes or longer) that you start to feel it.

if it becomes a problem I am sure there will be a work around solution - OC and KTM have fixed far worse

The bike has too many positives to let this become an issue, but I very much appreciate you have had an injury so the new 1190 will need careful consideration...........and a long and very fast test ride

Getting a test ride should be easy. Going over 90 can be problematic. In Virginia, 90 or better is one day in jail for every mile per hour over 90. I know a place in West VA though....................

The high, touring, screen arrived this morning:







Just had a short spin and it's definitely worth the money. If Givi make an airflow for the kTm, I would try that but this will do fine for the moment.

Rumbux crash bars

A few pages ago, someone post a link with the RUMBUX crash bars (http://rumbux.co.za/products%20continue.html). Looks very nice!
I'm already contact them. Posted here to Brisbane will cost $930.
They also mentioned the price (not sure if the retail price or shipping) will reduce if I order 3 or more...
Anyone in OZ interested on this ones?
Let me know. I'm planning to order one soon...

I would buy it if it helps in motorway . Would you mind writing a quick review about the screen and how it is in motorway.

Cool2 1190 hot leg

I have read alot on this thread about the 1190 and the "heat coming out the sides of the seat, can I offer you a alternative solution?

For 25 years I have always wore black or at least dark motorcycle clothing, and I have always suffered in the mid summer sun, and during the last 5 years I had an R1 that really did give off heat under the right leg. So last year as part of taking a ride across Peru and specifically down the Ica dessert I decided to buy some light coloured adventure riding gear. It is brilliant, it reflexs heat instead of absorbing it, so it doesn't matter if the heat is comming from the mid day sun, or from the bike when sitting in city trafiic, you dont feel the heat. I now have the 1190, and just did a trip from Germany to the Orkneys during the few days it got to 40'C, and I didn't experence any issues with heat from the bike


Yes, there is the sheer embassment of wearing pale colours, and I have heard all the jokes, "Elvis has left the biulding", but for summer riding, I can reccomend it,

Once I work out how to add a photo, I will

With the standard screen in it's highest position, the airflow was directed just under my helmet. It was unbearably loud without earplugs. I used a Touratech screen extender to lift the airflow over the helmet

The touring screen, on it's highest setting, directs airflow just over my helmet. I'm 5'11", there's no buffeting and I can move my head to direct airflow onto the visor to move water away, if it's raining. It's a lot, lot quieter and isn't too expensive.. very easy to fit, use the tools in the kTm tool kit, remove 4 screws and fit new screen.

I haven't tried the touratech extender on the new screen, I don't think I will need it.

hth,
