    Thanks for a fun thread, took me back in time with the early Paris/Dakar Rally, even though I knew the GS was a great bike, I have ALWAYS been and still to this day a Yamaha TT500/XT500 fan , but I finally wised up and just got my first GS and love it !!!! What a great way to start the weekend on a Saturday morning !!! Cant wait to get my bike back from the shop later on today and go for a fun ride. Thanks !!!

    I didn't know half that stuff. You mean these bikes didn't just materialize out of thin air? :rofl

    I wonder how many FF's from here are pictured there in the slide show in the last minute of Part 3? Anybody recognize themselves?

    After all that time you would think they would have the shaft/final drive perfected!!

    I still love my GS, even if the final drive might go some day. Every bike has its achilles heel. Makes me grin every time I get on.
