    Haven't seen a thread for us here and thought it would be good to have one, feel free to post up pics and mods as well as anything else you think might be of interest.
    I've had my 2014 1190 standard for about 6 weeks now and have done around 2000k, it came with ktm heated grips, touring screen, hard cases, and crashbars, I also managed to get them to through in a wing's shorty can :clap I'll put some pics up when I have access to the lap top, future mods will hopefully be cyclops led globes, bash plate and maybee a set of tkc 80's.

    You'll only be on my ignore list if you deserve it:lol3 I looked through 9 pages this morning and missed that one.
    Edit it was 7 pages and I checked again and it doesn't show, any idea why.

    Once someone goes over a certain amount of the "inmates that have them on ignore" feature, ADVRider automatically hides some of their Posts/Threads at random so as to stop them from annoying others. This may or may not be the case in this instance but it could be.

    38k kms on my R model; its been flawless, but saw 'general failure' message coupla times recently :eek1

    might have been due to being just about out of fuel?? :scratch

    Low fuel will flash annoyingly and take over the screen when it gets really low , dunno what it does when it starts eating air.
    Not seen your MSG .

    Had my 2014 1190 standard for about 5 weeks. I also got the KTM extras (heated grips, panniers, crashbars and tall screen). So far I've added a unifilter, wider side stand foot, radguard and b&b bashplate. Really enjoying the upright riding position and versatility. Done a few basic firetrails (always been a roadrider) and love it. My prior ride was a zx14 so very different. May also do the cyclops light kit mod as factory lights seem weak. I'm in the ACT :)

    Im about the same as you, waiting for the extras to be installed today. Came off and Aprillia and BMW rt. Only a few fire trails to date, doing a course up at Merton in March to hone the skills.

    Yeah I have one as well. 2014 R model. Have done about 10K mainly on gravel.

    Really like how rideable the bike is. The heat coming off the rear cylinder is a major problem on those 30 degree days but pretty good in winter.

    I'm not a fan of the windscreen. Robmeoff, just wondering if the attachment to your screen works.

    I knew KTM had bigger and better things in mind when they built the 1190. :lol3

    I have to pick one up down there myself, In about a weeks time.
    But it's for a mate that can not get there to collect it. Oh well, I'm sure I can find the long way home on it. He He.
