Hey Guys, I know this has been touched in some of the posts on this forum, please bear with me. I'm hoping to join the 1190 club in August or September, but I just cannot decide which flavor to commit to. I keep changing my mind and I'm getting frustrated with myself! About me: I haven't test ridden either, but I've sat on both. At 5'10ish with my 30inch inseam, the R has me on tippy toes (std does too with ergo seat, but not as much). I'm coming from a '12 650 Vstrom that has seen a fair share of dirt and service roads. I definitely ride a whole lot more tarmac, but when I see a nice fire service road or trail, I love exploring. Can anyone direct me to a write up done by someone who's spent a more than a few days on both machines? For those of you who have experienced both, is it possible to quantify the difference for both on and off road? For example, is the R 15% better offroad, but also 15% worse on-road? Or perhaps the standard is only 10% better on-road, but 20% worse off road? Would it be fair to say that even the Std would be a bit better on dirt than my Wee? Another thing that worries me some is what I've been reading about buffeting on the 1190s. I had the same issue on my Wee. Madstat bracket and windshield helped tons with wind-noise, but I'm still experiencing annoying buffeting at higher speeds. If the buffeting on the Std is a lot less than on the R, it would be a big factor in my decision. Bonus question: Any firsthand dealer recommendations for southern California and what I should expect to pay OTD? I live just north of the San Fernando valley.
