    This is the year that Chaleco has needed and wanted to rebuild his confidence. Just watch him in the post stage interviews, he is a completely revitalized person. The dishevelled, exhausted demeanor has been completely transformed into a more lively, rested, and as you said it, relaxed aura.

    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....
