F800GS owner 1190R dreamer

In my opinion there is absolutely no comparison between the 800GSA and 1190 (either model).

The suspension alone (not to mention the horsepower) is reason to go with the KTM.

Mitas C-21

Go with Mitas C-21 (http://www.mx1canada.com/mitas-c21-stone-king-yellow-stripe-front-tire.html) Stone King Yellow Stripe for the front. You won't be disappointed.

I need to do some clutch work on my GS and was hoping the REKLUSE would be ready. Was just told Spring of 2014.
