I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure

No bike does everything perfectly. In fact, no bike does anything until someone gets on it to ride.

Yeah, split it, It would be a lot more useful for both groups.
'94 BMW R100GS Bumble Bee
'08 Triumph Tiger 1050 (Sold it, solid performer)
'06 KTM 640 Adventure (Sold it and regret it since day one)
'03 BMW R1150GS Adventure (Death because of hopistalary infection R.I.P.)

Yep split it.... Just like G Spot.

I dont see it as us and them, its just logical to keep each bike in their own area.

BMW Adventure bikes..... just an excuse to go home early

G-spot was not split. Parallel Universe was brought in when the F800GS posts took over Beasts. Pretty sure that All of the GS iterations live together, ie, WCGS did not get split off even though that is a bigger change than 990 to 1190.

Pretty sure all GS boxers co-exist.

I'm not selling my 990 but the 1190 seems to get by off road

It's never totally made sense to me that the 9x0 SuperMoto/SuperDuke discussion was forced into Road Warriors simply because they were not "off-road"

What I would like to see is a split like:
-> Orange Crush
--> 950/990 LC8 Dual Sport
--> 1190 LC8 Dual Sport
--> LC8 Street

I'd like to see the 950/990 and 1190 have their own forums in OC. 950/990 have quite a bit in common with each other, most of the information on those two bikes is interchangeable, so keep them together. 1190, not so much. Of course the problem would be training people to post in the correct forum, but that could be easily remedied with Sanka.

Fine the way it is currently for me.... I dont have problems actually clicking on page 2 if needed. Takes all of about 10 seconds to scroll a page.
