This is my current ride. After my trip in 2007 to Costa Rica and a chance to spend a couple of weeks riding aboard a F650GS, I was hooked on riding adventure touring bikes. In the summer of 2008 I rode this bike from Ottawa to Alaska. The bike excels at everything it does, handling, braking ( I now swear by ABS systems) lots of torque from those two big cylinders. My bike has all the bits and pieces from the GSA adventure model, including the shocks. With a set of Metzler Tourance tires the bike was sure footed when riding the gravel roads in Alaska or free wheeling across the mountain passes in Colorado. This bike spoils me for all others.
