Well it has been pretty quiet on the 1190 front for me lately. I have been flat out with work and my one outing was in New Zealand on a DRZ. With a bit of luck that should change over the next couple...

G'Day Doug,

The 1190 tracks really well for a big bike so I think the combination of geometry and damper are working well. Given that the damper has been fitted since new, I am not sure how much...
