Joe! Omg omg omg! Tell us about the bike!
Apparently you haven't heard, according to all the "experts" in the 1190 thread, the bike is completely incapable of going anywhere without bottoming out and exploding!
I want to see LOTS of pics! LOTS of info on how you like the bike, how it handles, how it works on gravel, etc. and LOTS of info on what mods you make to the bike! Oh, and pics of your trip too!
