What would you call the two "branches"? "Poser" and "Real"? "Road" and "Dirt"? Then you will get into splitting "Adventure" and "R" on the poser side.

Cool2 Mods need to start taking the individual questions and dump them in the same thread.

I was against it at 1st but all these new owners keep starting new threads for every question about every part or problem they have with the 1190/1190R and its getting harder and harder to find anything. Like the aluminum box I saw somewhere that can be installed behind the filter box for tools and stuff. Or was that on a different KTM? Its almost as bad as the threads started for the Triumph Tiger 800 and 1200.

Would make it easier for the 1190 people I'd think. No need to post "xxxx problem, 1190". You'd know what bike it were automatically by which forum it was in.
And I'm the type that usually dislikes multiple forums.

I voted yes but I highly doubt this poll will achieve anything.

The mods already decided there will be no split at this time. I expect some time will need to pass before they will reconsider.

If you want some form of actual public dialog with the mods, the discussion would be better off in the Ask Baldy, blame AceRph forum though even then you may not get much.

It makes more sense than moving the SM and Duke to Road Warriors. Different engine, electrics and running gear.

If anything it will benefit 1190 owners purely from a search point of view, this has always been a weak point of the forum.

I am down for splitting for two reasons:

1) I don't care about the legacy bikes

2) I don't want to hear the legacy guy's constant bitching. It's ridiculous.

2.5) the new bikes are better than the legacy bikes. Piss off
