That'll do for me. Thank you.

Now if only they would give 60-80 acceleration figures for 2 up riding... I guess I'll have to settle on power to weight ratio once we get the weight specs.

From what I could find on the 'net the clutch on the f800s and st is cable operated. The one on the gs will most likely be the same unless there is a good reason to make it different for offroading.

I guess they may be just as good as any KTM or BMW if fitted with offroad tires. Then again maybe not, I know very little about offroad driving.
