    Why such comment ? You are not stupid but if you say you are stupid may be you are, however I try to not offence people as soon as they don't comment like losers. Where do you come to this comment mate ? Tell me cause there is two people here bulling me and you guys are losers.

    I didn't say I know everything but I share what I know, morons like you guys don't read understand and can't digest it. Then write comments like this and make yourself look stupid.

    Just checked my centre stand bolts, both were loose and the same on a mates 1190 R. Could have some thing to do with the scrapping ?

    I've had my centre stand drag on the ground while two-up and neither of us are heavy (me 73Kg wife 7 stone).

    I've also had the rear bottom out while two-up which surprised me. So I did some checks.

    I have an 1190 roadie without ESD (manual suspension), this has a different rear spring rate to the ESD models. From the info in the hand-book I measured the static and rider sag with, (from memory) the spring pre-load set to 4 turns. After careful measurement I arrived at 9 turns on the pre-load adjuster to get the correct static sag. This also gave the correct rider sag as per the hand-book.

    Has anybody else tried setting the sag as per the hand-book?

    To achieve the correct sag with the correct number of turns on the pre-load adjuster would require a 2.5mm spacer under the spring.

    My seat of the pants feeling is that the rear spring is a little soft. Has anybody else a view on this?

    I know the ESD has a different spring rate to the manual version and I think it's softer so I can't try one of these.

    As an aside I have shortened the centre stand to make it easier to use, especially when loaded.

    Interested to hear other views and of course a soft spring will contribute to stand dragging.

    Tan, it's quite difficult for me to understand what you write, and I'm a native English speaker... it must be incredibly difficult for a Norwegian to understand.

    Leather provides much better abrasion resistance than textiles do, so that test rider is perfectly entitled to wear leather while riding like that on a lovely dry sunny day.

    We can ride any bike however we like. There are no rules; at least I was not given a copy of them when I purchased my bike.

    Dude laughed at you with his ass. I think that means he............. wins?

    Wanna wear leathers? Go ahead.
    Wanna wear Gore Tex? Have at it.
    Wanna go without a helmet? Be my guest.
    Wanna take a Harley offroad? OK, now I'm getting ridiculous. (Baja 100s not included)

    It's your bike, ride like you wish.
