    No. Take a closer look at that seat design. It is clearly an AD "V"

    I'd really like to see those bags offered for the 1190 Adventure.
    In a lot of smaller trips those big, ugly, square & un-aerodynamic plastic things they offer are not necessary.

    Of course. What I mean, to have those fit directly on the built-in rack of the Adv.

    Having in mind buying one 1290 SD. Butt when I get tired of the little suspension stroke after another year or so....can I slaughter it and bring all essential stuff (motor, controls etc.) over to my beloved and then totally overhauled SE?:wink: about the way LocuL did

    pointless bike like a streetfighter or diavel or anyother muscle bike. 1290 cc over 170 hp for what >? its a naked bike with no aerodynamics i wouldnt want to be on it after 100 mph.

    its a pretty bike but thats all ! pointless for UK.

    Seriously? :huh

    So the whole point of bikes is to go faster than 100mph and have to be for the UK market?

    You still continue to amaze me....

    That bike is the equivalent of a 1500 dollar a night call girl...

    1. Expensive
    2. Useless except for 1 activity.
    3. Ride you wont forget.
    4. Will do things to you that not many other would.
    5. Your wife would be pissed of you brought her home..
