Had a 1290R myself befor trading it on a 1290GT. i find the 790 far more fun and so much easier to ride, the 1290 only beats the 790 0n the straighter parts of the track, but the 1290 is fun pushing the rear tire to its limit out of fast corners, and popping wheelies at will. Very physical bike to ride, the engine torque would tie the stock suspension in knots. I loved that bike tho, so much fun for and all-round great bike.
