    This bike looks good in the flesh. Great to see you can turn off all that technology and just ride the bloody thing.

    I can't wait for it to be released here in the U.S. I always loved the 2010 990 Adventure R but was never able to buy one. The 10" suspension was a great feature for me with my 40" inseam.

    Current concerns as listed in other threads aside, I saw it in the flesh on Sunday at the NEC in Birmingham and I must say it looks a lot nicer in real life. The bike also looks very well made, quality looking components, except for maybe the funky hand controls. I guess for that price though it's got to be quality.
