do you have any idea how silly it looks when you sit around a campfile in an aerostitch?



that said, i don't think any serious adventure tourer wants chain final drive. rivet tools and spare links are few and far between once you get within, say, 50 miles of the arctic circle.

Or you can hybrid up your KLR and Triple.

Fun article. I read twice that the GS has a 5-speed. Also that it has nice low gearing for the dirt. You guys are having way too much fun testing these bikes. No arguments about your rankings - seemed fair enough. We all have our opinions and concerns. But check your copy - the GS is a 6-speed. First seems way too high for me, especially in the dirt. Do you really like that?

First post for me. I actually looked for this forum to make this exact point. How did the Triumph go from first to last?



I am seriously considering all of these bikes (well maybe not the beemer $$$). Definitely should have added the F650 to the review. Any Tiger riders out there to confirm/deny these *****-poor offroad allegations?

Hey guys,

The KTM950 is NOT fuel injected. It should and could be as KTM has an injected 950 motor. The poor gas miliage was the first hint. I did like the story though. This class of machines will continue to grow. You have to at least admire the concept of a "Go Anywhere" bike.
