    have got this idea in my head that I want to buy myself a 990Adv which as such is not a bad idea considering I used to be an avid BMW driver.
    The thing is though that from having thought that the 950/990 was some akward looking bikes I now really like them:eek1
    But then Again I alraedy have 2 pcs KTM, one 950 SER and one 990ADV but that one is in Uruguay and I am in Sweden and that bike is not likely to come here for another couple of years, have to finish my trip :lol3, a tough job bust somebody has to do it.
    Sooo I miss my akward looking beast.
    But the again there's the 1190 rearing it's ugly head in the corner of my eyes and being only 30 % more expensive I'm really in a big quandary.
    What's the best buy, money is not the issue?
    One thing I have against the 1190 is the wind protection, pure crap.
    And KTM now looks like the rest of the pack.
    So what do I buy?

    buy the 990, farkle the hell out of it and still have money to spend on other stuff! 990 is proven, 1190 is not.

    Wind protection on the 990 isn't great either

    the windscreen protection is not the best as standard , but if you buy a puig that is about 5 cm or 2" over the Ktm touring screen i think you be happy , my R is just floating trough the corners , and its a fun bike to ride ,:clap
