The GS thing is such old and really crappy bait, but 2SD certainly knows how to present it too keep on catching  :imaposer:

The smelliest bait lands the most exotic dish.

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:


Do I need to spell it out to you> Buy a Yamaha and get a pretty girl free. Its about as impossible as a HP2 riding up a waste dump in Ertzberg. ;D

My Yamaha didn't bring me any luck either - not as much as I paid for anyway...

Yamaha invented dirt? I don't think so..

Its all sex, lies and videotape I tell ya!  :thumleft:

No, no, no, Yamaha never invented dirt, dirt comes from Adolf's country. :peepwall: If you think your Yammie brought you no luck, imagine how badly you would have been off on a

Hmm

If someone mentioned "unstoppable enduro" to me this is what would flash through my head







Not this:



I know people get very upset about it, but clearly there is a difference.

What I don't understand is the GS1200 is a great bike, nobody can argue with that!  Its an icon and has single handedly created its own market niche and then became one of the world's most successful bikes, with other OEM;s scrambling to copy it!  So why do BMW insist on trying to pretend its something its not?  Nobody in their right mind thinks its an "unstoppable enduro" so why try and push that line?

Because pushing those type of lines is what created the GS1200 success. It is based on false advertising.

There is even a yearly BMW "ECO-challenge". How cutely misleading.

I think purists need to get over the ethics of advertising. ;D

Ja but like another forum member said recently, you know how 2SD can carry on.

Purists should rather get our way and get ads real. 2nd thought, who needs ads? Surely only those that need to know what they should buy?

Actually I lost interest in the Dakar when they started limiting capacity, the whole appeal to me was the insanity of huge capacity dirt bikes piloted by crazy suicidal fools at 200kmh across the desert.

Think about it, it spawned the 950/950se and HP2, awesome bikes in any ones language, my favourite Dakar bike was not actually a twin........

Unstoppable? This comes to mind, much more Enduro anyway straight out of the box at less than 1/2 the price.

No Stan, for true unstoppable enduro you need to lose the huge fairing, and fit a 300cc 2stroke. :imaposer:
