BMW R 1200 GS Adventure: Die Erleuchtung auf zwei Rädern? - by Schaaf
Even though the GS is such a massively popular bike here in Austria I still think it separates most bikers into either "GS haters" or "GS lovers". Everybody seems to have an opinion about it. Here's mine. I'm definitely part of the second group by the way.
Oh, in case you're confused about me saying it's good for quick riding while also saying that the outside temperatures didn't really allow hardcore riding: that's just how it was actually. Of course the road and temperature was more than good enough for spirited riding. Meaning harder accelerating, harder braking, quicker falling into lean. Hardcore riding in my world more or less means the same. Except for that everything's done a little harder or quicker even. And this kind of riding was NOT possible on site. It was on the following days though. On Italian tarmac. Unfortunately Marc and I didn't have the idea of bringing our rental bikes to Italy on the first day of our trip. Which still annoys me to some degree. I would have loved to really grab the big GS by its neck. Well... maybe next year. But still the riding on that day was good enough to be able to tell that the GS handles like a miracle on two wheels.
Did you appreciate the subtitles? They took me seven hours of work. Unfortunately I'm not a professional translator. Feel free to chip in a dollar or two to my PayPal if you're feeling generous. The more money I get the more time I can spend on working on the videos.
