At the risk of offending the beemer dudes, among others, I honestly think Fidel asked a reasonable question if you like a logical question - he even spelt out what it is he was asking.  Unfortunately, as with any question, one can choose to answer it according to how it has been understood.  There are those who feel attacked, those who joined in for fun, there are the spoilers, etc.  A lot of emotions here have ruined what would have been an interesting discussion.  My 2 cents.  :peepwall:

To come back then to the question.

In my mind you have to consider another question 1st:

What do you consider dual sport and adventure riding?


Once that question is answered you can start debating the issue of what bike is good for what application.


To me DS and adventure riding is getting the wife on the back and getting to far away places.
But going as fast as possible is never in that equation.


I've been in very hairy situations and rough patches with my 1100 - it's NEVER let me down and up to now I've dropped it once (on very slipery snot that I didn't know was slippery snot).

I've been on 4x4 routes (with and without my wife on the back) and I've at least once chased Topbox on his XR down one of those routes.

If your objective/definition of adventure riding includes going as fast as you can and pushing the envelope the whole time then you will make statements like Fidel did.

It does however show (to me) a rather one sided point of view with regards to DS biking.

Like the difference of the discription of a 'pillion friendly ride' if you would ask me or Lito.

My wife will not enjoy (and me neither) if I took her on a 'play day' at Atlantis dunes (as Lito's partner does - respect to her and Lito though)

But she trusts me completely and enjoys being at the back crawling at 1200 rpm up and over some serious 4x4 routes, ruts, holes and ditches, watercrossings and some interesting passes.


If you say the big GS probably isn't the best tool for 'enduro style' offroad I'll probably agree with you. Even if it can handle the style in the right hands I can never shake the feeling that I'm abusing it (when I do it). That doesn't mean it can't do it...


But if someone look upon 'dual sport riding' and make blanket assumptions about it as if there is only one style and then make a statement like some of the above - I will say: 'Bullshit'

And someone who labels GS' as unreliable or prone to breaking just plainly don't know what they are talking about...

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away
