It's good! Brilliant in fact!!  I think the RT edges it as a Tourer though.

2 blokes riding almost exclusively on major roads to go grab a Maccers whilst boring on and on and on about how bloody brilliant their GS would be at all the things they're not using it for. Tick  :stirpot:

Still a great bike though, just a bit too much of a mutual appreciation cult for my liking ;)

* My mate has one, it's clearly brilliant and I am a bit jealous.

 Actually the best bike in the world is the Honda Cub.
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.
Because .........

Shh, don't disturb Sim's dreams: he's been traumatised enough in his past & we shouldn't make that worse. However, he did well getting past all the suspension & drivetrain failure videos to find that fanboy one.

@ mr_diver "I'll stick with my Honda and Suzuki thanks"  :auto-dirtbike:

That's fine, I accept certain folks have a desire for dull boring Honda's  :thumb:  :haha:
