Owning a Stelvio after a GS

I also had a 2005 R1200GS for two years that I put some hard miles on. I have nothing against BMW (and I love my F800GS), but compared with the Stelvio the GS is actually boring... My 2010 Stelvio...

I tried very hard to own only one bike, but it is impossible. My old 2005 BMW R1200GS could bite more dirt than the Stelvio, but didn't come close to the thrill and the joy of riding...

Stelvio waits 5 minutes before starting again after a spill

With about 4,000 miles of mixed use of road/off-road and snow riding I verified this issue to be consistent: Bike falls on it's side and shuts off by itself even with the wheel freely turning in the...
