Once you get used to them, the BMW turn signal switch design is a lot easier to use and keep track of, also their tubeless tire repair kit has found a home on every bike I've owned

All very well to get a better dirt bikes...but over here in Australia the GS series sells heaps because it can take a lot of road (tar and good dirt) miles to get to really bad dirt (including sand etc). There was a specials version of the old GS put togetehr for Australia..big tank, all the off road gear. Horses for courses.

Well what I want to see is what you guys think of the new K1200S. There is an interesting download of one running the Nurburgring.

Sage advice from someone that's owned exactly one bike. I however have owned 35 at last count, and have ridden dozens more. I've owned several of the fastest sportbikes of their day, some of the coolest custom cruisers, and many dirt bikes of different types. I have waaaaay over half a million street miles, and many thousands of dirt miles, which include exploring most of Baja California.



KP I'll bet I have more miles backing a motorcycle out of the garage that you have accumulated riding your little Kawasaki (that is if you actually own a motorcycle). Like you I once thought BMWs were sort of odd. That was before I bought an R80GS. So when I tell you that my R100GS is the best compromise for long distance touring, and off road exploration perhaps you will listen for once. VWW

A point of clarification, Sean; wiener schnitzel isn't a sausage. With a name like mine one has to know such things !
