Well considering that the vast majority of their "enduro" bikes will never see dirt, they can claim what they like. It's more a "life style" sales pitch....

Though it is quite a claim... How many BMW's did you see on the Dakar?
Running is hard. It always has been. Woolly mammoths didnít just roll over onto a plate and serve themselves up to prehistoric man with fries and a shake. They had to be caught - and running down woolly mammoths was hard.

Well thus far my BMW has proven much more unstoppable than my ktms,  both the ktms left me on the side of the road more than once, 990 and 690! 

Oh yeah Ktm, "ready to race" just take a trailer with because you prob. Gonna have a breakdown, and "ready to race" just avoid the pebbles or your front wheel will fart out all the air,  "ready to race" just remember to take the bike to Hilton for a suspension upgrade... "Ready to race" just remember to put grease around your air filter or avoid dirt roads...

BMW you sleg ding!! God forbid any other manufacturer starts producing 200kg+ bikes that they market for off-road riding with bikes jumping through the air and sliding around corners ala Dakar... If manufacturers see what BMW is up to an try and copy them the world of motorcycling as we know it will end!  Lets just hope that no other manufacturer starts producing these unfinished, heavy road bikes full of electronics and weight and try and sell them to a bunch of wild dogs!  No wild dog will want bikes like these!

 :pot: how's that for stirring the pot with some ugly truth!

The point was that BMW blatantly lies and you zealots actually support it?

Yeah, not exactly what was meant, point is all the manufacturers lie, it's part of their marketing campaigns when it comes to adventure bikes... Hehe see I'm gonna climb on my "unstoppable" enduro this weekend and have lots of fun...

Eddy, please just stop in time!!! :imaposer:

It is a marketing pitch, as clairvoyantly seen by a WD member :imaposer:, but it is false advertising.

At least when Yamaha says; "Someday you'll own a Yamaha" it is true. Ask multiple KTM warrior Despres. :ricky:

 ;D I'll give "like the crow flies" a new meaning!

  Cyril is doing brilliantly on the Yamaha, How is he doing now in the dos soertos? Last time I checked he was far in the lead!

Let's also just remember that it has allot to do with the rider, like those advertising campaigns with the super tenere in the sand dunes of some desert, I will not be able to do that, so looking at the ad it gives the impression that taking that bike into the sand dunes is a normal thing... But it's not...

Did you guys see peterhansel in the desert with the yamaha R1?  So yeah, maybe all these bikes are unstoppable, jut depends on who is riding...

BMW has won the Dakar a number of times, isn't that a super-enduro?

Not at all, the Dakar is like a super-offroad. And this is another lie, BMW never won the Dakar, aftermarket companies did, badged as BMW's. Google HPN. :-[

Danie, Danie, Danie.  Wat was die vraag nou weer?  O ja, hoekom het my nuwe F800GS semi-slicks op as dit 'n enduro is?  Wil ook weet.

Nee, fok.  Splinternuut.  Lyk soos cut-slicks.  Werk mega goed op my 2km grondpad na my huis toe.  Veral met ABS nog aan.  Unstoppable is presies die regte naam.  Hy stop eenvoudig glad nie.  Gee wel jou regter voet 'n massage...

Nee, nog nie gesien nie, triple tuning forks is Yamaha se embleem, afkomstig van hul oorsprong in musiekinstrumente.

Aaah ... the sweet music of brand bashing.  :biggrin:

I like the fact that that Yamaha makes musical instruments and bikes

Years ago in Pretoria there was a guy called Neels van Niekerk who was one of the best two-stroke tuners around. He also made backyard expansion boxes under the name "Vannik" and had a very good scientific understanding of pressure waves. Anyway, he was a Yamaha man through and through and always said that nobody could build better 2-strokes because Yamaha also made music instruments and therefore they were the only ones who really understood sound waves.

It's all in good fun, a chance to have a little laugh and get some sarcasm practice in... If it weren't for these type of posts the wild dog adventure forum will be half empty and seriously boring!!

Never met them, but guys like Neels and Arno Stoffberg were 2stroke boffins of note!!

Oh yes, BMW= Bullshit Media Works.

Come now Neil, difference is that the YZ/WR REALLY does have reverse cylinders, and Kent Anderson WAS REALLY world champion on Yamahas.

I do not know what to make of the rhinopotamus talking on his cell while riding a green scooter though. :eek7:
