So, is this for real? Any feedback? How is it working for you guys.

Do you run with a tube still? Especially if you air down for offroad riding.

I have not purchased the bike yet but this is a huge deal for me. I rather not pull a wheel if touring on my bike.

What happens when you get a puncture? Do you use Slime or similar? I run the Tubliss system with Slime on my 690 Enduro R and was considering the same for my 1090 when I get it. Thoughts?
In a tubeless tire, the tire and the rim of the wheel form an airtight seal, with the valve being directly mounted on the rim. If a tubeless tire gets a small puncture, air escapes only through the hole, leading to a gentle deflation.

I found out the hard way, causal Sunday ride 70km of black top and 20km into a rocky dirt road. Leaned into a small left handed and ended up with a 2cm slice in my side wall😔. No way to repair and pump up. Next day ultra h/d in both and carry a standard 21 spare tube.
