…. a Super Adventure 1290 S

The 1190 stays, Mrs had choice of getting to borrow the newer lower mileage 1090 when we go away, or the older higher mileage 1190, she chose the latter, and I have a soft spot for it....

...by this age / mileage my last GS had got through 2 Fork Seals, 2 warped discs, Leaky Gearbox Seal, Heated Grip failure, 2 clutch faults, ABS problem (intermittent errors never diagnosed) blown 3 headlight bulbs, a never resolved stalling issue (as you changed down and went to move off like entering a roundabout to find no power just as you need it most, very rare but fucking dangerous when it happened) - plus a couple of recalls.

So not too bothered about keeping this "unreliable" 1190 after all that!
