Exactly! Which IMHO is why BMW is taking the Boxer GS down the path it is going; to appeal to and compete with the street-oriented "adventure" bikes/riders that appear to be the majority of customers these days (95-99%?).

BMW has lost its way with the original concept of the big GS. Too bad. Luckily due to the numbers produced over that last 30 years the used market will be strong for guys like me who want a GS for its original mission.
