Well guys, yesterday while a mate was getting his 1290SD serviced i booked a test ride of the new 1290R 2020. I took it out to Raglan, 80km ride each way. nice sections of corners to ride and get a good idea how the new beast goes. Well its insanely fast and thats staying under the 6000km rev limit. Man i loved it, i adjusted the suspension and WOW its sublime. And now its in my garage. Wife wasn't too impressed, but i set her mind at ease when i said they are trading both the 1290GT and the 790. I'm so sad to say goodbye to the 790 as having recently getting the suspension to my liking. But i wanted to down size my collection especially having a Multistrada and 1290GT. So made sense to keep the high milage Multi and get a new 1290R. It can do my fast touring with mates and now be my track day weapon.
