  2. Spotted
    I was coming back along the M8 from Glasgow today about lunchtime and spotted a white zebra-liveried Africa Twin heading in the other direction; it was the same colour scheme as Massive Lee's, and like the one I saw at the Scottish Motorbike Show in 2014. I think it had a big BMW GS for...

  7. Chatter
    Just had a look on the BMW GS info forum.Couldn't believe what i was reading.Numerous people complaining of severe engine rattles,coming from rocker cover area.Most of them say they have to use ear plugs to drown out the noise, that gets unbearable over 60mph.One poor bloke was told after having...

    I've been away from bikes for a while, had a DR350 which I bought in Texas (and used for a month of travel), then shipped to Kenya and used for 3 years. Next bought a BMW GS 650 Dakar in UK, rode around Ireland and Europe, then shipped to New Zealand and kept for 2 years. That was 5 years ago...
  16. Africa Twin
    Have been offered a GS1200 at a good price off a skint mate & was wondering if anyone on here has any experience of them? Although they seem well regarded are they that much better than the AT?
