The GS1200 is the exact opposite of a non-100/200series Landcruiser. On tar the old "real" Landcruisers are'nt too bright, but offroad they shine. The GS1200 is so well designed for tar work, the manufacturers did'nt bother to make it's safety feature work on dirt. It is this bad.

So then the F800GS would be the PRADO then? And the XR650L the GWM/Mahindra Scorpio?   :imaposer:
And what about us dogs with KLR's??? Are we the Lada Niva equivalents?  :imaposer:
