Interesting to see they are keeping the sub seat fuel tank. Very low COG.

Kinda forces a guy to look at the Buell...
Buell?? Why not the KTM, Strom, etc etc etc. The Buell is a 1200 as well isn't it?

They're pretty cool bikes. I like that there's no belt on the Motard version (unlike the CS) and they seem lighter.

Now if they can get the new F800GS right it will kill the market. No one makes a middle weight adventure tourer and about the only thing you hear about the big GS is how big it is. I like my 950 but I'd gladly give it up for something that was in the mid 300lb range and made something near 80-90hp. That would be a bike to take on a real adventure. Maybe an HP version that was 330lbs and 90rwhp?

If you use Geico watch out. The buyout for my car was way below any objective figure (KBB, NADA, etc.). Also, I could not get in touch with anyone on the first try during a claim resolution.

Just because it's a zoo out there doesn't mean you have to view it from a cage!

Don't be an impulse buyer... afterall you have time..
