the 1190 is a great bike, but in my view the 1290 engine is quite a bit better, plus the improved suspension and I like the looks

I thoroughly enjoyed the part of this week's show where they rode the 1290 R
same here and the bike was rated 10/10 8)

Agreed, but they were a little critical of the 1190 which I thought is a pretty sorted bike

Clothing and Equipment / Re: SHoei Hornet X2 - inspection after off?
« Last post by manta on Today at 08:34:52 am »
Here's some advice which may be to late for you but keep in mind for next lid.
After you buy, have your lid x-rayed. Most places will do it and they won't charge you much. Keep that x-ray.
If you have no offs, after 5 years x-ray again and compare. If you ever have an off and you're not sure, have an x-ray and you'll see straight away.
I have a 9 year old lid, have an initial x-ray and have checked it yearly since it turned 5 still perfect on the inside. Replace padding in your lid every few years to keep it tight and fitting well.

KTM LC8 1050 / 1190 / 1290 / Re: 1090R vs 1190R

Update on the filter discussion of earlier, Manic wasnt an agent for Unifilter but correct! 24000km now on and while the filter was lekker dirty, the airbox was clean. Photos on my thread. I did find the edges of the filter greased and redid the grease as well before refitting everything. I had forgotten this discussion but now rereading some stuff here, seems like a good thing I did that!

Reading up on the 1090 on advrider it seems like a good idea to just get the 1190 now. Decrease in specs, power lower while it will cost more and weight is not reduced much. If it got the new speedo  it would have made sense. Current feedback is it wont, but imagine if it then does come out with it. I am so happy I dont have to make the call on 1190 vs 1090 now...
I had to make the call recently and I chose the 1190. The choice between 1290R and 1190R would have been an easy decision if money was no issue.

Here is a trick question - that first water picture at the dam - the background is over exposed.  how do i get this right if i want to use a lowish ss to capture the water falling - was set at 100ss

Lower your aperture
, lowest ISO and speed around 1/30 shutter speed

There is no way to get both parts of the scene correctly exposed when there is too a big a difference between light levels in a scene, unless you resort to post processing or HDR or something. So you have to choose what's going to be correctly exposed, which you did, that de facto made the background over exposed - just the way it is.

Opening your aperture as frankmac suggested would have slowed the shutter speed (although not sure if you would have got it slow enough), but the overall exposure would have remained exactly the same, only your depth of field would have narrowed as you opened up the aperture. The background would remain over exposed.

Apologies, my terminology isn't what it should be. By lowering the aperture, I meant to raise f-stop value from say f2.8 to f14 and not to open the aperture
