I wonder sometimes, maybe race-bred suspension isn't what the bulk of adventure riders want? If it was, there would be a lot more 990 Adventures sold, I think they have sold about 16 in Australia this year?
The only reasons the KTM's dont sell is

1. their fuckn ugly
2. maintenance is notoriously a pain in the ass
3. there are no dealers
4. mpg is shit compared to beemers

pros-

1. they make a little more power
2. their suspension system is king for a true 50/50 bike

its my opinion so take it with a grain..........

I still haven't found another bike that can match the F8GS for what I do on it. If there was something out there I would have it in my garage!!


1. read last few phrases........i love it but..........
2. like u said - u shouldnt have to pay for an ohlins suspension on a 20k bike and it is 20k after all the shit u have to do to it to make it right

That kind of logic will never cut it on a BMW forum.

You know what I'm saying.
