    It was the "Used" bike of the year, not the big one. But a good report nonetheless.  :031: :419: :152:

    Indeed. If we listened to them, we'd all be Ewan McGregor wannabe's riding GS1200 tractors or whatever the latest bike they get paid to promote is.  :112:

    I think you mean "riding GS1200 tractors, all the while wishing KTM had said 'sure!'"  :008:

    That said, I think I'd get on well with a boxer twin... on a modest budget, a R1100S perhaps... or a R1200RS if I had money to burn!
