I reckon the 490 Adv will be a runaway success, even when it will come with cast wheels (which will be swapped by many then)!
It's big enough (don't think the 390 is...) for "further", and it'll be light enough for difficult stuff  :thumleft:

True Burpie, I also think so. But then, its only in our older age that we realise weight is everything...
Don't dress for the ride,........dress for the fall!
