Hey guys,
I have a BMW Sertao and am selling it to upgrade to the new 990.... I think.
How are your bikes holding up? Any issues that are common?
Thanks

Well I only have about 300 miles on it so far, and it looks OK. It didn't take long to scrub in and handles far better than the K60 it replaced on the street. I took it into a grassy field where the heidi would have been squirrelly as hell and had enough traction to loft the front end easy instead of just spinning. Threw about a 20ft rooster tail too. I'll post in the karoo 3 thread as I get more wear on it.
