Sorry about the sound, but I don't have the software and the time to create a good sound to it.

In the next dayís Iíll write a short report about the first 5.000 km.

It's all fake - you know - done with all the modern film trickery to make it look like the bike is being ridden off road at a decent speed. We all know the 1190 Adventure cannot be ridden off road - we read all about it on the internet so it must be true

On a more serious note - great video Joe. It's good to see the 1190 in action and even more sos to see it offroad. I have an 1190R on order and will hopefully see it within the next 8 weeks

Having now been a few miles done in Africa, I can give you a first report.
Always compared to my 990 R.

My initial scepticism about the less suspension was unfounded. The missing centimeters are not really noticeable in normal riding operations. More important here is a properly tuned suspension.
Only the lower ground clearance is noticeable.
There are some scratches on the skip plate, but thatís build for.
As on the 990 I have on the R 1190 R mounted a higher seat and therefore a similar seating position.
I'm usually in the 80 octane mode here. Especially in the lower speed range it's a lot more fun to ride,, no comparison with the 990 R.
On various riding conditions, except for mud I have everything behind me, the 1190 R is easier to ride. But you can go as fast as with the 990R.
The limit is always the driver, never the bike.
As usual, I have reinstalled the narrow rims of the Super Enduro and the Scorpion Rally.
After 5,000 km I fitted new tires in Nairobi.

The petrol consume is 6l/100km. With the 990R I used last year in similar contitions 7,5 l/100km.
Oil consumption at 5000 km 0.5 liter
The 1190 has 2 fans and whether in the sand at Lake Turkana or in city traffic in Mombasa, there are any heat problems.
Renate is thrilled with the seat, sheís never been riding so comfortable through Africa.
And now to the problems and mishaps which some are waiting for:
I fight my way through the sand at Lake Turkana, sweating like the pig and the display shows,
,,ice warning''
The temperature sensor is faulty, but it was prior to departure.
At the end of November in Salzburg it was not as noticeable as here in the African heat, and I was too lazy to exchange it before departure.
2 screws on track luggage rack are broken.
But until now, as expected itís an nice rid without any problems.
Now Iíll give the 1190 R a few days break. By boat weíll go on Lake Tanganyika further south.

Thanks Joe for the review. Faulty ice warning, and two broken screws. Seems like minor problems.

Many thanks for the review. Very good.

Few question for when you will be back:

1) can you feel the increased weight?
2)Compared to a 950/990 standard is still lower?
3)How do you find yourself riding off road with all this electronics?

Ciao

Nic

1. No,
2. What do you mean?
3. I don't use the traction control and the offroad ABS is working perfekt.

Ciao Joe

Hi Joe. I wonder if you're running the engine at full power or if you set an engine map. What do you use normally for your riding?
What your impression on the different maps?
Thanks.
Walter

Thanks for sharing your ride and impressions of the 1190. I have a 04 950 adv which I have traveled just over 130 000 kms with...I think it is time to get a new bike .....the 1190 is looking more and more a perfect option.

Hi Joe, glad to see you made it through South Sudan okay. I am sure you are enjoying the company of your wife now as you head south. We are in Dar Es Salam for a few weeks until the 25th of January. It was great to ride with you for a few days and look forward to the next time. You are always welcome at our place.
