I agree, I sat on them and felt way better and didn't look/feel near as bulky. I agree with 2wheelnut, I'm not paying 14000+ for it. But also won't be buying a 1090R. Maybe wait on the T7.I have sat on both and by far the 790 feels much lighter and felt like a much smaller compact bike..It felt comparable to my DR 650, size and weight wise..
Well having bought two bikes recently, I'd have to finance this one...that's the big issue. I don't really have the coin.
Agree. And.... for most of us, not having the perfect bike isn't our limitation. Mine is time....if I have the time, I can ride the bikes in my garage and have a great time. Yeah...maybe it would be slightly better with a better bike for that ride.....but I can ride the bikes I have and the ride will be 95% as good.Ride what you have and get some experience. There will always been the new and exciting bikes calling your name. It is REAL easy to get caught up in all the excitement and hype about the new bikes dreaming about how awesome they will be to ride and how they will make you a better rider. When you have more experience, you will have a much better idea of which bikes to listen to
