HI Dibbs, I rode one (1190R) and felt is was supper exiting and felt like it was just a bit over the top ..... and felt huge !. A very nice bike though . I had a 990 for 3 years and actually preferred that in the dirt . The buffeting on hi way speeds was a pain with the 990 though .
I am buying the AT because it is slimmer and feels lighter . (and I am a huge Honda fan ) . Bikes are always such an emotional buy , and each guy is swayed to his choice through personal experiences with brands , his mates , what he has had fun on in the past ??? etc etc .
have a cool day .
