Okay, we relent. Splitting the rotax GS twins to their own forum.

We just need a snappy name for it.


Suggestions?

"GSpot" could change to "GS Flat Twins", "GS Boxers", or "GS Shaft Driven" or something of the likes. GSpot staying named GSpot doesn't make much sense anymore since technically they're all "GS's": the boxers, the parallel twins, and the singles.

The new forum spoken of could be "GS Parallel Twins" or "GS F-Twins".

The BMW GS Singles would stay in "Thumpers".

That's my vote!

GSpot is an original forum here so nothing is going to change with that.


RoTaxation with Representation, maybe. Or Rotax Nation?

I'm betting this is April, fools :)

barring that, there ar many GS's, they are all BMW's, no gaurantee the F8 will continue to have a Rotax engine, and rotax isn't very snappy anyway. Hmm....

"unstopable F's" or perhaps "occasionally stopable F's".

Any traction here?

Just because it's been around since the beginning doesn't mean it's name can't change to something more logical and fitting for the times. Search your feelings. You know it to be true.

In the spirit of this not being an April Fool's, how about:

Parallel Universe


There are no other parallel twin adventure bikes that I can think of off hand. At least none that we can get in the US.

I'm diggin' that. Would we have to let TDM's in? Or Scramblers?
EDIT: shit, or Versys' and the new Tenere?


Any more?
