Any suggestions on more dirt orientated tyres?
Feelings on Karoo 3's or Pirelli Scorpion Rally

Swapped previous gsa with a new gsa lc, remarkable motorcycle in every aspect. Everytime I don the helmet and straddle the  saddle my grin grows exponentially.

Nice test done between new GS1200 Adventure and KTM 1190 Adventure R, seems no clear winner though

My opinion, has and will always be:
GS - comfort, long distance, tourier with the capability to do offroading from time to time
KTM - Hooligan offroad machine with the capability to do long distance touring from time to time..


all depends what you going to do more of.


I agree with this, I own a KTM 990S and GS 1200 (2009) and I use them according.... But I would like a new GS :)
