Can anyone confirm if the touratech branding is just a sticker that can be removed from the hand protectors?

They would be, but In my opinion, I wouldnt buy the touratech ones, they dont look like they have a steel insert like the barkbusters..

FYI, the bark buster VPS are like $300+- but they fit perfect. I actually ordered a set of bark buster EGO's ($129) in KTM orange and with a small trip to bunnings, i had extended bolts n a 24mm hex spacer and they fit perfect and I think look better..

Thumb Some 1190 (Std) Perspectives from an ex 990 owner.

Thanks Speed Rover & Tancakar - your comments much appreciated

Yes - I did some pretty deep research before I bought the bike - really wanted the R, but just couldn't ride it (or should I say Stop Safely on it!! - I even had some fall over experiences on my 990 which got very "tippy" when loaded with Panniers etc.. - on one cracked a rib, on another ripped my calf muscle trying to hold the rig up).

I knew there would have to be compromises and am still finding out which are worth it. Anyway this weekend will fit:- TKC 80 Front & Rear tyres;Bash Plate; either 16 Front or 45 Rear Sprocket (not sure which yet - any comments anyone?); plus a few other farkles eg. grip heaters.

After these changes, I will ride some more dirt and let this forum know how I feel then.

I guess I covered how I feel now - don't get me wrong, I really appreciate what a magnificent bike this 1190 is (only bettered by the R) but, at this stage, there are some things I hanker for compared to my 990, even though this 1190 is far superior in quite a few ways.

As I said guys - watch this space!
Who knows I might just fall in love again!!!

The 1190 is clearly more capable off pavement. Has anyone tried both on the road or track? Does the 1190 give anything up to the MS on a paved canyon road?

I cant comment on corners.. but in a straight line.. it gives up a big fat ZERO to the ducati MS..

if anything, while its sitting neck to neck with a MS, it wants to wheelie to show off as well as saying im not only as fast & can do dirt, ill also sit on the back wheel while doing so.. ;)

My experience of a quick traffic light drag up to about 85km/h n an 80 zone ;)

I would say after this, is where you can get right into the throttle and pull away from the MS 'but i would never do that in an 80 zone'

I only see Touratech and Holan with specific setups for the 1190.
Any 1190 owners own a good pannier setup?

I like the Andy Strapz soft luggage setup shown by Nerb on the previous page of this thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...postcount=4382
