I'll second that and say that they'll have nothing but praise for the bike on-road.

They sure are teasing us! Kevin Ash says that he's going to the press event on the 19th, but its always possible they have several different groups of people at different dates.

For a bike as significant as this one that is much more than possible. But it is likely they will be scheduled on successive dates.

Yeap, so it could be happening already or perhaps Ash is in the first group on the 19th. There is another event in the later part of February in Morocco to be followed by US dealers introduction in early March in Morocco.

Nice videos, but I noticed that all of them rode older models, airheads, oilheads.....

One thing I find amuzing is how these videos show off the bikes capability both track/street and off-road. How do all the people that trash talk the capability of these bikes off-road explain these riders??

My conclusion is that yes, there are probably better off-road bikes (they're called dirt bikes) out there, but if you suck at riding off road, don't blame your sucky-ness on the GS. These guys prove the bikes all around capability. From dirt road jumping, sliding, overall hard riding to cornering hard on the track/street.

Very cool videos....anxious to see real world reviews later this year.

Amen brother! The reason most people trash talk the capabilities of the GS, is that "most of them" are just posers and will never explore the capabilities of the GS, also they typically want more H.P. (which they'll never use as well).
