Mild section of the White Rim trail did in the GS 1200 front wheel. I wouldn't judge all GS's
by that either.

From what I've seen your KTM has a better chance of getting damaged banging into
the other bike on the trailer
.
Somewhat guilty as charged....I spent my youth in college and working...didn't start riding dirt till I turned 50....so I'm here for a good time, not to stroke my ego....

BTW, cast wheels of any brand will fold like that easily......as anyone knows.....but most spokers hold up much better than the Butterfaced Yammie wheels on the S10....
