One overweight dirtpig (GS) was enough for me, thanks.
You ride a 990 07 model, which will be a whole 5KG less in weight... its all in the head, cause you wont notice that.

No, acc to KTM the 1190 is lighter - same weight wet with more fuel.

(Sure I saw that somewhere ... )

hahah - I see the last decade of "new release, disgust, enthusiasm, enthusiasts, rave reviews, bitter ponies, glitch finding, modifications, and upgrades" repeating itself. C'est la Vie!

Yeah! You never see anyone having to put a skidplate on a 9x0!

For sale: 2010 Ducati and red riding gear.

(although after careful inspection of the pictures it doesn't look like anywhere I wouldn't/haven't taken my Ducati, I just don't look as awesome in doing so). Would like to some pictures on SE quality terrain.

Hahaha. Red riding gear...

With regard to the SE everyone bench marks. Have u ever seriously considered that rear shock. It's a POS from a kids 85. Very limited in it's ability. I'll bet the 1190s handling is much better than the SE

You should try riding all of the other bikes I owned. The SE-R shock is awesome. (ALthough the Ducati shock might be fine, but the stock rate sucks so much the handling blows regardless of dampning). VTR1000F, KLX250R, KLR650, XR350R, TLR200. Probably the worst rear shocks ever. A good 85 shock is definitely superior.



New 1190 looks awesome, probably far better on the road than any of my bikes, and definitely better off-road than the Multi.

Not enough KTM orange for me... Orange is just faster!

GPS location of 2nd to last pic

Any-one know the location of that 2nd to last pic - looks great don't think I've rode there before - may try and pay it a visit on the next trip.
