    Rims are just a hair narrower than standard ones and non tubeless. Bummer.
    They are DID Dirtstars though, so at least they should be tough.

    This is unfortunate, I ordered one before I read reviews. Now i dont know if this was the direction to go.

    your seat will not shove you, this I can assure.
    I definitely didn’t find the slope of the rider area to be remarkable in any way, which means it’s probably pretty neutral. give it a try.

    Anybody hear any updates on the 2020's? On Monday my dealer said the bikes were in country and he was expecting a shipping notification for his store any day now.

    :evil I am also waiting on a KTM 790 ADV delivery in Atlanta.

    Were you asking about the R or Standard? I'm assuming the R because the dealer I am at had an S on the floor from 2019 still.

    Yah, apologies, I should have clarified R. In theory I am at top of the list for my dealer (put a 1 K depo down back in Aug). He says any day now... Where is YOUR dealer ; )

    When I ordered mine a week or so ago I was told they were in Que for shipping which meant they were at the warehouse. They've gotten a few S models in the last week but no R's yet.

    Glad I reserved a spot for a 2020, I just got an email confirming I will get my R in December sometime.

    Sorry about the last of the 2019 season bugs. The two Allen screws protrude enough to line up the pocket.
