See ya, I'm off to beemer.

Nice knowing you all (and by that I mean some of you), but I sold my 1190 today and I'm off to BMW with a new 2015 S1000RR. After riding one my heart is still with sport bikes it seems. The 1190 had so much potential to be a great bike but it was blighted by silly design f*** ups like the airbox and starter. I hope to have less trouble with the beemer and even if I do I'm more confident about BMW after sales care than KTM's.

Horses for courses they say. That RR should peel paint off my 1290SA when you pass me on the highway! 199HP?!?

Best of luck to you, I am sure you will have fun.

This is a solid bike, I hope you can deal with the 199HP on tap.

No doubt the RR is quite the bike. I sold the 1190 and picked up the 1290SDR.... No regrets and the bike has zero issues with mucho smiles per mile. Plenty of umph too... KTM has an answer for folks with power lacking and unsorted woes for those looking to stay orange. Cheers.
