With Paul and Dietrich I guess that makes 5 of us...

I like Paul's GS definition too!

Well what do you know, there are other GS riders here! Seriously

I also lurk about Adv Rider. This is clearly a more mature and concise board, please don't take offense, it is only my opinion.

The reason why I asked was I had an RT and loved it but was time for a change so I bought an LT. Very comfortable but it really didn't need me, Just start her up and I could take a nap, it did everything but make popcorn. Then I figured let me test drive a GS. No radio, no cruise,no cup holder, Hey I'm riding a bike again. I still make the same commute (80 miles daily) I have been really enjoying it. The tires are more street then off road so there is no vibration (not true there is a little over 90).but it is fun to see a dirt road and take it. I have also found that being much more nimble is a real treat. I personally have never seen more then two or three bikes I thought "Not for me" so each his own. I guess what I am taking the long way around trying to say is If Adv rider has a very large GS contingent then maybe ST should consider a place for us. would be happy to help with it as well.

I love all the replies

I had a GS once but sold it to someone who wanted to stand on the pegs and not sit on the seat like a real touring bike.
Actually the site is missed named . There only two BMW ST's 1200ST with funny headlights and F800ST with it's little wimpy upright two banger engine.
All the rest are big portly gentleman's' perches that go fast and long and still go around corners well enough to scape pegs. So they just call them ST's.
Who woulda thunk it?


Why is it that 'Stupid' stands out so well?

Both RT and GSA are great for touring and live in the stable of bikes. GSA listed as the most fun to ride IMHO!
