While everyone in this wide big world have the right to their own opinion, the simple fact remains, that I really don't give a rat's ass of what you think of the bike I ride nor of where and how I ride it.....  Ek het nog nooit met 'n ander ou se p..l lekkerder gen..i as met my eie een nie......  So thanx for all YOUR opinions of MY bike..... I'm really taking it to heart ----- not..... ;D


if you ride such a kief bike, gooi a ride report. I reckon you just full of hot air...

I Agree with Kilroy. I don't give a shit what anyone else thinks of my bike.... They don't have to ride it I do... Instead of talking so much shit rather go out and ride a bit...

This topic has been discussed to DEATH!!!

And we all have agreed that BMW are absolutely the crapiest bike you can ever buy; and the people who buys it should be shot on site and their bodies left in the sun as a warning to any other potential buyer.

o..and before I forget. KTM's are the best bikes ever made and that will ever be made.  :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P


Now that every has heard what they wanted, can we talk about something more interesting?


My Dear Fidel

I agree wholeheartly with popi. The GS is the k@kkest bike even build and 99.9% of the buyers bought it after watching the Charlie/Ewan DvD's. Furthermore all the accidents etc happened at the GSC is the bikes fault and the whole GSC is a ploy from BM to get their workshops full.

Regards
Ama


agree. It is the karest bike and get over it. There is so many reasons why people like me doing adventure trips would love to have the BM, but no worry, it is a kark bike. Well, the price yes. Curse you BMW!! If I only were rich.

No seriously, it is a kark bike, and those rich buyers, you are all kark!! damn you all!!!!

Honestly, Fidel, I am amazed that you (old timer) would ask this question. Dope!! I reason we have all gone through this and it has nothing to do with the bike.

And again I will stick out my neck and say this, "It was Lito on a BMW that inspired me to become what I am on a bike. He always smiled and falling was so much part of the fun." Now these days, Lito is kind of agro. But even that has nothing to do with the bike.

BMW, KTM, Kawa, Honda. I just love them all and keep watching this forum; Zonkelnut is going on a LOOOONNNGGGG ride! Yip, and that on a simple street bike, a Versus!

And like the Transalp, bring some serious questions about the bikes and their riders.

Everything is sold and Bike ready and packed. Here I go ... and may I defeat the evil witch that took my crown away. But until then I will be known in the Nomad Race until I defeat her and put the fairy princess where she belongs.

For me its all about needs, ability, and own choice........... If a bike fullfill my needs and suite my ability and i like it, Thats my choice. I believe the GS is a legend in its own time........ BUT....... i dont like it......... i dont like its looks, sound, price, etc.........

I am a V-Twin guy when it come to duelies............ they sound awesome specialy with aftermarket pipes....... , when you press the starter button they do not sound like a (koffieblik vol pitte) .

I am not a real biker cos i dont own a GS, and i don't do the heavy technical off road stuff. I am more a road rider Own a GTR 1400 aswel) But love traveling offroad gravel highways.

I just think every one got his own needs and when the bike tickels your fancy go for it.

I wanted to buy a GS in the last couple of months cos all my friends either own one or wants one..... and i just realised after i spent some time on a couple of them that i will never be happy on one...........
As my gat jeuk krap ek hom met my bikes se seats!!!!

After the RR I concluded that the 990 is not the perfect tool for serious playing...just to heavy for me, I'm trading my 990 in on a 690 and buying a  BMW 1200 ADV (R120 000 WITH ALL THE EXTRAS , 4200km 2007 is this a bargain?) for those long trips.

Well, we all know your bike couldn't compete in the 'long distance touring' dept - it's actually got to finish a long trip for that...

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

Baastids!!!

I just decided to finish my trip in Caledon in stead of CT...

It was very cold and I much preferred my girlfriend to come fetch me with the cage...
