    You had said that the side shot did it no justice and then commented with a curious emote on what is basically a side shot.

    Yes, you say that it's "wild looking;" have you formed an opinion whether you like what you see or not yet?

    no that is basically a 3/4 shot.

    this is a side shot and you can't see the dynamics of the entire nose from the side.

    Has anyone seen pictures of the full bare naked frame with forks and telelever attached? The vid above shows the front and rear subframes attached to an engine case, but no forks or 'lever. All the other pictures hide the telelever with those cheeky radiator guards.

    I'm late to the party. RL's pictures started at post 2593, on page 173... fantastic, thanks RL.
    Lots to digest there, I got some catching up to do.

    KTM has done the same stupid thing with the new 1190 Adventure.

    The first thing Joe Pilcher did before he left for Madagascar was have the hubs re-laced to 990 size rims.

    According to German "Motorrad" the new engine is better than the old one (of course).
    They compared the 2013 GS on paper with 8 contenders and of course only the GS has no defficiencies (red points), all is green :-)
    - quicker revving engine
    - better engine sound
    - better shaft drive
    - even lower weight
    - full electronics program

    He does have an R and it has the same silly-assed wide rims.
