It gave me Husqvarna TR650 Terra :o

Not a bad quiz, I really don't think they missed the point too badly, but I'm happy with my 690 :D

Well, the bastards called me short because I'm less than 1.8m tall.

So, if I say I'm short it says I should have a DR650. When I lie and say I'm tall it suggests a 800gs which is what I have, so I suppose that is about right. Can't put both feet on the ground and it doesn't bother me one bit.

I got 800GSA. So, midway between the 800GS and HP2E in my garage already?

Yip... Got a DRZ400 though, just a branding issue 
In a previous life I rode a KLR.

Not much dust in NZ...

Yamaha XT250

I've got a BMW Xchallenge and a WR450. It's the whole "short" thing - it confuses it.

F800GS. I suppose they focus on new bikes. Seeing as my AT is my all round favourite, and in the same class, its not far off

Till you get the new AT......... :peepwall:

I got the Kawasaki Versys. No offence to anybody that has one, but it does not float my boat at all. ???
