Hmmmm. There'd need to be two stipulations for me to bite on this
bike:
1) it has to have better steering range
2) it needs to be around 250lbs
Other than that, I'll stick with my 690E as is.  :P

That's a pic of the 1190.  The 390, if it ever hits the U.S.A., will be more of a dirt-oriented machine.

I would love the 1190, if I never had to pick it up.

Eh the 1190 wouldn't be bad. I had an 08 1200gs and dropped it twice or three times. It wasn't too terrible to pick up, and it's a good bit fatter than the 1190. If I had the dough, though, I'd grab a Moto Guzzi Stelvio and keep my 690 and 500. Haha.
