After riding my Suzuki cruiser for 2+ years with guys on Ducati's and BMW's (and always being last in line on a ride), I decided to look into the GS/Mulitstrada regime. Multiple test rides and the realization that I missed some packed dirt riding made me choose the GS. The Multistrada made me do bad things! Plus I felt the GS a better fit for me considering some of the trails/roads I wanted to ride. Started looking up sites for the GS. Found this site and the rest is history. Lots of great info here and turned a "what the hell does that wrench do" guy into a "I can do that" wrencher.
