Seriously thinking about selling my gsx-r 1000 with every goody possible and picking up a bmw r1200gs adventure. I rode a friends on about a 800 mile 3 day trip and let me tell you that thing is amazing. It would not be a very easy bike for shorter people but being 6'6" it is not a problem. In fact it is the first bike that seemed to be made for me. Comfy seat decent brakes huge storage and 8.7 gallons of fuel. If any body knows about these bikes please give me some input.
