They are not the same bikes

I looked forward to rinding and buying the WC GSA. But after trying it a couple of times I realized that I much prefer the 2013. It depends on what you like to have on these bikes. Yes, the top end...

Is that really the case? Regular, non-sponsored, experienced, sober GSA riders prefer that new model. A majority? BMW must use pixie dust.

thanks

The web sites were very helpful. I found Dual Sport Adventure Rentals through your links. Had a good chat with the owner and it looks like we can create a route that will work.
Thanks again.
