When is the new 1190 adv coming to US? Something to consider. They will start selling here in march, so i am on a look out for a bank to rob.
I took the smt as well as the 690, for a test ride, both of them lot of fun, the 690 is bit 'busy' if you do lot of blacktop. While i have had the 990adv, without any 'issues' for 6 years now, as a tourer, something like the tenerere, might be better. There are that many models to choose from, of course if you know excactly what you need and have the finance, tell us what you ended up getting anyway!
