Thanks Charles. Off to D.V. and Sequoias tomorrow. Panamint side of D.V., that is. Just fishing, hiking and boozing (with the fairer sex). Nice videos as well Charles.

Great stuff. Just watched the whole thing, ok maybe some fast forwarding. :) Over 4 hours. They changed the course a little bit. It's always fun to watch Erzberg.
Thanks For the link Lior.

Finally they are doing it right, an off-road test for Adventure bikes. And this is what it looks like

Riding in mud is shiite.

I got a lifetime full of it growing up in the PNW. I would come back from riding completely brown, covered in mud. Hmmm...guess that's how I kept my nickname.

We used to have to waterproof our carbs and wiring so they didn't flood out.

Bunch of goofy brits, eh

Now looking for an ADV big-bike

I'm seriously considering a bigger ADV bike for the wife and I, for mostly 2-up, but also for the occasional trip myself for longer hiway miles. The Husky is great for what we did in GC, but it doesn't work for 2-up on the road. My Versys is great for me over the road, and it will haul us both for day trips, but not with any gear for overnighting.

I test rode the Super Tenere. Sat on a GS, Multistrada, and 990. I need to ride them all I guess. Of all the assorted bikes out there these are on my shortlist.

The S10 was a bit mild. It is so sorted it is almost boring. From what I understand they can be tweaked a bit to really come alive. Their shaft drive is said to be outstanding. As heavy as it is it feels very light and handles really well.

The GS is always said to be the class leader. It doesn't really do anything the best, it's not the worst at anything either, but consistent across the board and extremely comfortable, especially for two, making it the perennial favorite.

The 990 is the best offroad. But typical finicky euro bike with all it's quirks. Not the ideal 2-up mount.

The 'strada is the sexiest of all and clearly the fastest on road. 150 horsepower on tap - WOW! That would be a ticket machine for me. And talk about finicky and quirky, and expensive, plus forget about one off pavement. Wifey really liked the new titanium matt finish 1200S Touring. You might fit a couple'a shirts and a pair of socks in a pannier.

I could probably be talked into a 990 or a Tenere, but right now a GS looks like the best way to go for us, especially for a low-mile used. Currently in the hunt.
