That is one area where the TuonoV4 is better, no question about it. If the SDR1290's TC is anything like the 1190ADV, you have to choose between wheelie at will or TC safety net with almost no overlap. Even in Sport mode response feels neutered when TC is on.

One more complaint....slippery foot pegs. There's not a great pivot point. Those rear sets are starting to look like a good idea.

Also, what are the tail tidy options? How do they work in the rain?

Agreed on the pegs. I was rather shocked. They're not so bad with brand new boots when it's dry... But they're god awful when it's wet.

There are a couple tail tidies out there.

Not that it matters, even with that erector set hanging off the back of the bike, any water and you are getting wet it slings right over the tail.

But yeah, rear-sets are ordered already, if only so I can get it shifting, I'm awkward as HELL with standard shift the only thing saving me thus far is that the damn motor is such a fucking avalanche that I don't have to shift just leave it in 2nd and carve.

The Tuono had a better motor I thought. It got ixne'd because of fuel range, what the hell are you going to do with 90-100 miles till reserve?

Oh and its fucking ugly, the Beast is sex on wheels, I actually got surrounded by a pack of 1% eating lunch because they wanted to know about the bike.

It's the Nelson-Rigg CL-1060. I like it. Fits and looks good. Holds a good amount for a day ride. I didn't use the supplied straps because they were pretty long and I wanted to utilize the underseat loops that come on the 1290. So ended up using zip-ties, works fine.

NR makes good shit.

I'll look into that bag. I ordered the larger KTM bag, but it's too big, awkward fit, and it scratched the hell out of the tail on both sides of the seat in the 200mi I had it on the bike. :-/

I still can't make myself put a tail bag on a bike.

At this point its raw knuckleheadedness, but I can't do it.

Can one of you guys please check to see if your bike stays in sport mode after you shut the bike down for at least 30 minutes?

My bike won't stay in sport or rain mode. It always goes back to street mode.

Thanks!

Time and date hold correctly

I thought they did go back into their default setting when shut off, or am I thinking if the traction control and wheelie control.

Mine stays in Sport mode. Haven't switched since I got it. I think I may have set that in the favorites menu.

I think the traction control will revert unless you buy the $110 dongle to make it stay.
