What GS really stands for
« on: August 20, 2014, 12:19:02 pm »
Well I was told that it stands for is Gelende Strasse (Off Road Street).
But again this morning watching these bikes all zooming down in the yellow lane because their massive pannier systems use to carry their laptops and lunch box are so wide that they cannot lane split like the rest of law abiding bikers with ruck sacks on our backs.
Yes I am generalising here I know but between Samrand and and Olifants this morning I saw at least 5 of them doing this. All with no number plates as well.

Made me realise that GS actually stand for Geel Streep cause thats where they always ride.

LOL
Where are my shorts??

I get them all the time, or the bigger KTM's and Triumphs. Some of them actually let you through, but most just take up space and out-accelerate me when they eventually get through a gap.... only to get stuck again a few meters down the road..
Don't look back, that's not where you're going.

Geel Streep, dit is nogal waar hulle meestal staan en wag vir BMW Roadside Assistance, so dit maak sin  :imaposer: :imaposer:

Daar is baie dinge oor die GS soos bv Geen Sand, Gaan Staan ens maar dit beteken eintlik "German Shitt"  :peepwall: :pot: :imaposer:

Ouens wat dit koop om (net) te shuttle, sies man, skaam jou. vat die ding offroad ook.
Julle trailer park ouens wat op Yammies ry kan maar ook `n GS`sie aanskaf,  is lekker hoor.

It also stands for "Gooi Spoed", when they open the throttle and fark-off down the road.

And "gaan skuit", that's what they usually reply when they find that the 1190 is faster.

Actually it stands for GIVE SHIT because everyone who doesn't have one gives shit to those who do have them.

Also stand for GAAN SKYT because that is how much we care.

Ek het al gesien as ek hulle verby vat op die grondpad, dit lyk asof hulle lekker vÍr vooruit kan sien a.g.v hulle ry posisie, staan soos 'n paal bo die water uit,  :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:

Say what you like. The G/S singlehandedly revived the dualsport industry through the efforts of Charley and Ewan. In fact, no, wait.. It ESTABLISHED the dualsport industry.
Messrs Boorman and McGregor gave KTM first option, which they declined on the premise that the boys wouldn't make it, and the resulting publicity would be bad. They still are trying to fix that f/up.
There are just as many Mugg and Bean riders on KTM's as there are on BMW's.. Let nobody fool themselves..

That said.. G/S = "Geel Streep" is just too funny..  :lol8:
