Back in the fold!!

Well, I used to be very active on this forum when I had my 990SMT and, as of Saturday, I am back with my new (to me) 1190R!!

Welcome back!

I could sell you (back) a nice pair of LED handguards for that lovely looking bike you have :mrgreen:

(Never did get round to fitting them, but the seat works a treat ;) )
This is what I do with mine....

Hi, mate me too, exchanged the 990 set for 1190 adv, wanted the R but I'm not tall enough. Still miss the 990 sometimes but the adv is awesome. Cheers Bernie

Great minds think alike. Sold my SMT a couple of months ago and bought an 1190S. Loved the SMT dearly and it took some parting with. Took a year and a couple of cancelled ads before I bit the bullet.

Bought it as a budget upright tourer but really its a back road hooner more than a distance bike. The 1190 does that better but if I could have, I'd have kept the SMT as well.

Ha ha know what you mean, but have found that apart from the extra weight, not so flickable, the adv is a bit better for everything else. Happy days
