My worry would not be over the engine. Either it runs okay or it doesn't. 60,000 miles is nothing on one of these.

I get your point about the longevity of the GL1000. I don't get the "breakdown" story. That's a flat tire, easily repaired at the roadside if it's just a normal puncture. No breakdown there.

I saw it in DC and noted the tube type tires. The rep at the booth said that's what we are getting. It seems the center spoke wheels keeps the price down.

It also keeps me away.

Get a 4 man Eureka Timberline. It weighs 8-9 lbs. Sets up quick and easy just like the 2 man but much more roomy.

It's strapped to a bike, not your back. Go for comfort.
