    Love mine wouldn’t get rid of it. No plans of trading it even on another one. Just gunna ride it as long as shell run. Would highly recommend it traded a streetglide on it and won’t go back

    French review on the 790 ADV S (non R) :



    His conclusion:

    - loves the engine better than on the Duke
    - very maneuverable bike
    - seat is firm buy very comfortable
    - even if suspension is not ajustable, the setting is great for on-road and light off-road riding (flying carpet effect)
    - too bad screen you need to use a screw to adjust the screen

    He will test ride the R version tomorrow to judge the difference in suspension.

    The non-R 790 Adventure is the first bike I'm debating trading my Street Triple for. The local dealer said they'd call me when the non-R was in, but they hung up instead of repeating my phone number back to me.... So of course I worry I'll miss out...ha!

    Woke up early, rode the Street Triple through several thunderstorms on backroads toward Murfreesboro on its "goodbye tour." Not a bad 150 minute ride, really. Sold it to its new owner and picked up the 790 that I had reserved earlier in the week. On my way back (retracing my steps, TN Hwy 8 was closed, so I had to take Hwy 30. Somehow I must have missed ALL the food in McMinnville as I was starving by the time I gave up on 8 and hit 30. Kinda glad I hit 30 -- there were some AWESOME twisties up near Spencer TN. Yes, it was pouring rain and I was on new tires, but rain mode and the easily-controllable character of the 790 made it a piece of cake.

    Just got home....I'm starving, bike needs a bath, I need a bath....

    Although the bike is really a hot seller here based on how hard it was to find one, I wonder if the lack of availability will dissuade the aftermarket from making luggage options. Probably not, as this is an adventure bike people have been waiting on for a long time.

    Anyone thrown hard luggage onto their 790 yet? Thoughts as to the best options so far for lockable luggage? I have to say, I really miss the SW Motech racks I put on my SV years ago. The rectangular rack could disconnect from the arms of the mount when the panniers weren't in use.
