    Hey all,

    I have tested both Africa adventure sport and bmf f850gsa. I liked BMW by looks more and it felt more comfortable for me, for power they felt the same.

    So is there something im missing by picking bmw gsa 850 over atas?

    Though decission, but im leaning towards gsa.

    Don’t think you can go wrong with either. I went with the 850 GSA and very happy with it.

    I have ridden the first two years Africa Twin and the 850GSA is way better Motorcycle. More features, better fairing, and cruise control!!!!

    After 1400 mile in Baja, Mexico I can conclusively say the 850GSA is a much better travel companion.
