Sad but true

Yes the Euro 4 emission requirements are definitely going to dumb down everything when it becomes law in 2016. What a pity.

No, I bought the Adventure and not the R. I like the better road capability and have already taken it off-road and it is fine for me on both. I do not intend to ride heavy off-road or red technical...
