    Well, BMW is doing something right wrangling in the younger crowd :clap Unless this bike blows up, I'm a GS'r for life.

    I am 67, first GS in 1998 (1100GS) followed by 6 others (1150GS x2, 1200GS, 1200GSA x2, 1200GS) and by the 25th March on the 2013 GS :freaky

    I like 'em

    Looking for them too.
    Maybe their experience was so bad they don't even want to write about it. :)
    Then again I don't expect many ride reports as this was mainly a sellers' event.

    My dealer is going next week...I got the impression the first week was for journalists, but I could be wrong. One person from each dealer worldwide would be a fairly large group, so maybe they are all dealers.

    Oh how I love this comp. Always rode, and it seems now again, will ride the 'underdog' engine. The excuses, when you meet up on a twisty road, afterwards from the (in this case) EXp rider are so amusing every time :lol3:rofl:rofl:lol3

    Indeed.

    Also where this comes from? It's all Triumph logo and sh*t. Maybe it's what Triumph themselves supposedly measured? (I wonder when...)
    The photo seems to come from late Kevin's site. From the forum possibly?

    Pure porn indeed :evil This is where I will be in September on mine. A 2 week tour of Spain from UK through France. Pyrenees, Picos de Europa, Granada, Almeria and Murcia (the region shown in this clip).

    However, I STILL HAVE 3 WEEKS TO WAIT BEFORE I GET IT :wink:
