Congrats on the enhanced rider, done it last year and got forty quid of my insurance. I keep in contact with my instructor and go out for extra lessons £100 a day well worth it.

Cant say Ive spent long enough on an @ to pass comment although the TA isnt going to be far from it.... but the GS1150 is one of the most fabulous bikes Ive ever ridden, gutted I didnt have the available funds to keep mine, and if I didnt want to do much off road and get somewhere quickly in major comfort the GS would be a the top of my list
Congratulations on passing the test
I've never ridden a GS, but would love to have a play with the different models...however a mate of mine tried several GS's and couldn't get on with them...tried my Twin and went straight home and bought one
I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.
There was a test that ran in one of the bike magazines many years ago with a South African enduro rider and he compared the GS1100 and the AT back to back - his outcome was split - touring and tarmac it was the GS everytime - off road or having to make a choice of a round the world bike it was the AT
02 RD07a RWB, Powerbronze tall screen, Remus Grand Prix, TT crash bars, TT pannier frame, Zega style panniers, Alpos top box,TT bar risers, TT headlamp guard, Heated grips, mainstand, Heidenau K60s for road and light offroad, TKC80s for the dirty stuff, Scottoiler, Autocomm, TT Zumo mount, Zumo 550 and most of all A BIG GRIN !!! Oh, and a very nice RD04 HRC coloured Marathon Replica
I feel misled. I came here expecting a discussion about old Suzuki inline fours but instead it turns out to be a thinly disguised meeting of the tractor fan club

There's always the XLV shaftie, but as I've said, there's no advantage; and the AT hasn't got any spare power to drive a shaft.

well done for passing with flying colours first of all. Second point, this thread proves the fact that there are no absolute values in bikes and preferences. It is all down to what the bike does for you. U park your rear end on the best or for whatever matters, the worst possible bike in the world on paper but the proof is in the pye. You ride it and u know if it is the right one for you or not. It is a very personal thing.......
My very "incompetent" opinion is : ride a bike and form your own judgement.....whatever it says on paper can be used as bogg roll.....
