I take back all the shit I talked about the T700 :o

Christian Pfeiffer does that on a GS with a lot less bashing and crashing. If that is all it took I am sure we would have had 2SD on a GS before now.  :pot:

My daughter tells me Unicorns are really nice. Can't say I have never touched one...
Please post the video where he does the exact same thing with a GS ?

Come on Katoomat, did you just lie to come up for a BMW?? :pot: :thumleft:  Post the video, I would like to see that.

Can we call this fake news yet ? I have only seen videos of Chris wheeling and doing burnouts on a GS1200 much like is done with a 1990ís model GSXR  :pot:

Chris "Teach" McNeil on a BMW Adventure bike, put that heading in youtube for a couple of minutes of fun.


not just cris phiefer , chris birch does it on a big ktm 1050 or 990 or whatever takes his fancy, plus quite a few other dudes on the big beemers, back in the day a few of the wilddog guys would do some crazy stuff on the big heavy bikes, circa 2005, 2006,2007 when the forum was alive with weekend rides and crazy antics. forum has changed a lot now with most guys who own expensive "adventure bikes" dont really want to scratch them.
ever been on a ride with the new era adventure bikers and they pull off to the side when the road goes from tar to gravel, no they arent stopping, just spending 5 minutes scrolling through there electronic riders aids to find "gravel road settings "". maybe in a few years they can sit on the pillion seat and the bike will drive itself. [just saying]

I thought it was bad enough, when they have to do a mandatory tyre pressure adjustment, every time they change from tar to gravel.  :sip: 
When is this "Old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

New era adv bikes don't have to stop to disable stuff,
and tyre pressures.... You need to stop getting riding buddies at mug n bean.

All good and well, but none of the guys on the GS's/other big bikes did a vertical step up as was shown with the T7 above followed by a decent drop to a flat landing. I'm sure the riders (Pheiffer, McNeil, Birch etc) could do it given a T7, but I haven't seen a GS do that, and I'm not sure they would come off so well. They're just too heavy with too little suspension.
- you reckon that thing will pop a wheelie? We're about to find out, SLAP that pig!

Yeh. This.

Chris birch is amazing and can chuck a big bike around, but I doubt even he is doing step ups that size on a GS or even a 1X90 R.   790 sure, but that wasn't the claim really.

I would bet my own money that the suspension on that T7 is modified.

The T7 in the "Yamaha T7 Boana Devil" is definitely modified. I see the little rotter has changed the stock tyres! Also where is the Australian policeman that Chris from Flying Brick swears is always around when we do something stupid like this on bikes over here?
