A 690/701 with rally kit is the best. I have had 2 x 990's, 1190 R, 1200 GS and a 690 with an Omega kit.
I will never go over 700 cc again.

i agree, not much to choose between the two, but the 690/701 is the best.
you do not need all the extra crap that people love to paste on it.
and, they are reliable, you only get lazy owners.

Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

Some Charlie said the other day that the best ever D/S bike is the BMW GS310.

You do not pay attention. :ricky:

But then, a close 2nd, is the 690/701. >:D

Eish! I don't know about the 310!

But do yourself a favour and go testride the new 690. Something special!
