New to me


Recommended Posts

 Believe you demoed the new Pan America and the GSA back to back….and we sees the winner! ;) I slacked on two perfect 04’s (one Whip pointed out) so a third chance is probably not possible but, that’s ok. I’ll enjoy seeing how things play out with yours! :thumbsup:

Welcome to the club, bought mine 20 years ago, still probably the best motorcycle I’ve ever had. 




Speaking of comparisons, in about 2010 I rode an 1150GS from Highlands to Asheville (300 curves in 60 miles : ) to demo a new Tenere 1200, afterwards I realized it wasn’t nearly as good as the decade old design I’d ridden there on. There’ve been a lot of imitators since, IMO none have yet surpassed it for its intended purpose.

I just thought that 05 might be a good compromise  LOL

What is the purpose of the bulbous beak (high fender) on the GS? (BTW, I don't have a GS.) Miguel


The general consensus is to hold beer... :rofl:

though it might have some function at HIGH speed with stability. You'll have to ask Whip and Lawnchairboy about this.
