    That's what I was just thinking. What a shame if you think about the good old 950s, looking exactly like the rally machines.

    It's not just you, by any means.

    I love my 990, but still miss my 950....styling, carbs, the perfect ADV machine. The 1190 looks like an RC8 gone even worse....

    18:41 Bikes: Duclos breaks down?
    The French Sherco rider has been at a standstill, just before the 341-km point, for almost one hour. The bike and rider are just off to the side of the tracks in an earthy zone.

    18:37 Bikes: Caselli in trouble
    The leader of the bike special, American Kurt Caselli, has ground to a halt after 396 km, apparently due to engine problems.

    Just crazy to follow the lead of one of the all time best selling bikes. It's as silly as wanting to ride like CD.:)
