went for a ride on an 1190 adv today. rode my 990 a couple hundred miles as well, and did some back to back comparisons on a variety of surfaces.



the bike is very FAST compared to the 990. transmission is much smoother as well, and the bike actually feels very light. gone is the snatchy 990 throttle. it is FAST. almost broke the blinker switch, as it is a simple click not a level like all other bikes have been for 40 years... windscreen in it's lowest setting is a tad too high for my diminutive stature (5'8") and i get some decent buffeting at speed. traction control was on the minimalist setting, and was very prevalent in stopping the tire from spinning up and standing the bike up rolling on from low rpm. did i mention it is FAST?

ktm is going to sell a bunch of these, but i will keep my 990 for now. the 990 is better in the rough stuff. still an awesome job by ktm. i would take this one over the new GS1200 bimmer.

Demos are to be demoed

I feel its a little tacky to drive 300 miles to a dealer with a demo now, ride his bike, and then come back to my local shop and put a deposit down.
Worked for BMW MC for years. Demos are for test riding . Don't feel guilty . It.'s why they have demos. Feeling guilty, buy something from the demo dealer. demos have to obtain a certain mileage before the incentive kicks in and before they can be sold. At least that is how BMW does it. I drove to Marrieta , Ga 240 miles to ride Mountain Motorsports demo . In this case I am purchasing my bike from Mountain motorsports in Kodak , Tn whom are owned by the same people. Ride it and tell your dealer you did. He / She had the same opportunity to get a demo and failed to do so. Think about how many people go to demo bikes with no intention of buying. Trust me,plenty.

your experience please?
thanks
I honestly didn't notice, but the 21 on the 1190R isn't any thinner than the 990.

My dealer(Elite Motorsports Loveland, CO) left me a voice mail on Saturday saying the rep was just in and told him "maybe late December for the R model". Should make a good Christmas present

Can you give us the part number for the hand warmers and information on the GPS mount.

I ordered the B&B Offroad Bashplate and have the Wings shorty on the way. Still looking at luggage and hand guards.
