    I didn't. They wanted over 8k for it and I thought it was over priced. Not a big fan of the color either, it was the tan over black

    I was able to see one at valley motorsports when I looked at the multi 950 and the seat was way to high for me, I want to say over 34 inches. I couldn't even get it off its side stand.

    1190 is bitchin

    $100 rental

    effortless cruising power at 80; this thing can get you into trouble when you're on it. Would never use all its power off road.

    great street manners, relatively comfortable, and good ergonomics/ground clearance compared to the DL650 off road. It's still a big bike though, so I'd pick it's assignments carefully; still prefer having a light bike + truck for certain duties. It was nice cruising out from home and exploring farm towns, hills, and mountains.

    Chris Birch is a magician and can make a mediocre bike look amazing, but the specific things he said about this new 1290 AdvR were interesting. Also dug the (relatively quiet) exhaust note.

    Some enterprising shithead on advrider bought a 890R Rally from his local dealer and then immediately tried to resell it on the site for $30k.

    Wagner has the 890R Rally coming and it didn't have an owner.

    They reached out to me knowing I can be coerced into buying something cool like that. That "Sold out in X hour" thing is a distribution trick. Same with the Gladiator Launch edition. Sold out in hours. Nope... It was sold out to the dealers from distribution in hours. I bought a new one on the lot months after delivery. They couldn't sell those things at the cost they had them at. I saved about 10k off the sticker. They are limited so every dealer probably got to order 1 or 2 based on their overall volume. They buy them knowing they can sell them easily.

    I love my 790 and think the fixes in the 890 are worth it but not enough to take and trade my free and clear 790R. I don't want the extra height of the Rally either.

    95 percent of them princesses. I get it though. I own a mutistrada 821. The riding position just begs me to rally the thing. But it's so frigging pretty I can't bear to do it.

    95%? no way. The 1290sar's are 18k and we beat them good. These aren't ducatis

    I very much doubt the majority of 890R Rally's will be used as Starbucks runners. The seat height alone is enough to keep 95% of the buying public off of one.
