Are you guys bashing other journalists? (2Wheels & SuperBike).

Marc, sorry, Jabu, I mean Marco, who was speaking about 2Wheels and Superbike, other than you?

And would you please identify the journalists from these publications for the forum? I thank you.  ;D

Generalisations, clichés, conspiration theories... That's a lot in a few words. ;D
'Siding with the Nazis': I'd love to hear your explanation about the infamous Vichy government, but we're getting completely off topic here.

Is this thread about the launch of the F800GS?

May I suggest someone give Luckystriker a F800GS for a 1000kms so he can produce a similar report as the one on his own Adventure a few months ago.  Read it yesterday again and I must say it is one of the most comprehensive reports I have ever read on a bike.  :thumleft:
If he takes the 'personal' angle of 'my own' out, it will be comparable and better then any of the best out there!

Now that is if he is not to lazy again! ;D

I dont hate them actually. Its more a comment on the Americans, those Himalayas of the mind, that they actually come up with this.

Guys.

For 90% of the buyers of the new F800GS it will be the ultimate and so it should be.

It was developed for the mass market using BMW marketing strategy. (Which is Superior, if nothing else)

It will be a good bike. More than most of us can handle.


For the rest, there is KLR. :mrgreen:
