Thank you.
We indeed have some beautiful places to discover.
Unfortunately small country and after few years you need to discover other countries to see something new.
Added some more images some places I drove:

Just got it!

First impressions:
- Sorter suspensions than the non-ABS model. Also stiffer.
- a little bit shorter than the non-ABS model, overall ~5 cm.
- Non-adjustable front fork.
- Very cramped space beneath the seat. ABS unit is a monster.
- Size "mini" blade fuses, not the normal "medium" size which is standard for the automotive industry (or like my Honda XR250R, Husqvarna WR250).
- No switch to turn off ABS, will add mod for it, on the blade fuse.
- No helmet hook/holder, will add bolted lock.
- Vibrations are there, but -hey- it's a big thumper!
- Passenger is very confortable.

So far I have not been in terrain so terrible that I could'nt stop with the ABS on.

But I'm also on road legal tires and the knobbiest has been Michelin T63.

I am on Pirelli Scorpion Trail and I ride on loose gravel every weekend or so. I did the mod with ABS ON/OFF switch and I have been using it ever since.

Maybe it's just me, but I feel more comfortable braking using the back brake without ABS. The vibration and aggressiveness of the ABS, makes me feel out of control, on loose gravel. On the other hand, braking linearly and sliding in control, makes me ride with confidence.

Tank capacity

Tanks are not same. Are capacities 23lt both ?
One big difference is battery location.battery is under the seat on nonabs version. But abs version .... battery is under the tank... very difficult to reach

They are about the same volume. From empty to the rim it will hold close to 26 liter but the officiel volume is a bit smaller - think the quoted 23 liter for the ABS

You can se my stats on https://www.spritmonitor.de/de/detai...ht/594575.html and i've often been over 24liter after 100km with the F blinking
