How interesting. When I first got my GS that article came out in Dirt Rider and I remember thinking, "That Lewis guy is a tool. It IS a dirt bike."
Now that I've had the bike a while, and ridden it quite a bit off road, I could not agree more with that Lewis guy.
It seems that his biggest point about riding the GS off-road is that the suspension is too soft and blows through its travel too easily. YUP.
Firmer suspension really transforms the bike off road.
Jimmy, I was wrong and you are right.
