Wow! 100k is awesome. I have 50K on my 950 and found it to be outstanding. I am very intrigued with the 1190 though. Is the R taller than the 950S? That might be a problem for my 30 inch...

Funny. It sounds like you have great equipment and solid skills. Sometimes, the trails are just harder than expected. What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger!

I have a 2004.5 model. 50,000 miles. Pretty hard miles too (much of the TAT, dual sport rides, etc. ). no major mechanicals (two fuel pumps, one water pump seal, etc).

I agree with BD! TKC's wear really fast and don't work that well on any surface for me. The only serious crash I ever had in 50k miles on my 950 was on TKCs.

Glad it worked. It is just a personal preference thing. I see a lot of crash bars on bikes that never go off road (not yours!). Also, some of the other brands seems to use flimsy crash bars.
