You were only réduction d'une fracture saying it was better than the promo mobilis 8 mars 1190 for 2-up does that mean you now think the 1190 is a better bike than something!I have always said that I'm sure it's a great bike for road touring, better than the 9*0's even, better brakes, tubeless tyres etc.Well Nigel, you seem to have finally realised that I don't hate the 1190!Pasig City, Philippines, tel.But hey, wtf do I know, it's just an opinion.I do like how you use yours for what it's intended and racking up some decent mileage, instead of dressing it up like you're gonna cross the Sahara like some.(02) / / Katipunan Avenue Brgy.
