I guess I will have to share my recent penis shrinking decisions here as well at some point...So this week I said goodbye to my KTM 1290R superduke. I feel that the type of road riding I have been doing, and looking at doing does not suit the machine anymore. Also given South African roads are just kak in general these days, change was needed.
I had looked into a few options, and for me personally, I wanted to get something great on road, something I could dabble with in the dirt a litte, something I have never done, and something comfortable.
My options were along the lines of the Ducati Multistrada, KTM 1290 Adventure, Triumph tiger 900, and of course the GS.
One of the main factors for me, was should I decide to go into the bundus, or a town that is not home, and the bike goes caput, I would like to have a decent support network, and parts availability.
The last point alone drove me to test the new 1250 GS, and boy was I impressed.
SO, from owning 2 ducatis, to a ducati and a ktm, to a BMW and a KTM, I now have gone fully native to my ancestral routes, and ended up taking delivery of my 2021 GS 1250 R in triple black.
I leave the floor open for GS and GS rider jokes. @PandaAttack1 has already been dishing out the lashes.
Still freaking sexy though, makes me feel like I need a new bike. Have owned the MT10 for quite a while now....Since it's post your new bike day:
For many of the same reasons Ryno got his GS, I decided to 'upgrade' my multi Enduro to a V4 multi.
My first brand new road bike!
*I had to sell the S1000R to afford this boi. My penis is now of average length.
Imagine having to do a warranty claim on your desert x half way up the sani pass...you have fun sunshine, I had my warranty claim stint with that brand...only because you said we could, even if I have no place to diss on motorbikes.
Imagine buying a GS right when the Ducati Desert X is released
Whats the GS like ?Imagine having to do a warranty claim on your desert x half way up the sani pass...you have fun sunshine, I had my warranty claim stint with that brand
Thing with the GS, its been a thing for 40 years, the boxer for 90.Whats the GS like ?
I know the numbers normally speak for themselves.
But is it that good that it warrants the loyal following ?
Dude, I wish. There's hardly any active car forums left. Your best bet would probably be facebook groups.Gents, I know it's been asked before but I'm looking for current advice.
I have a WR250Z which is in pieces - just about a complete build from frame up.
Are there any local bike forums which are active, which may be useful in terms of advice, potential spares, etc?
