I Want It All, Including Performance

If you’re the type of rider who wants adventure, or at least the thought of adventure, and wants a motorcycle that’s loaded with technology that you can have fun in the twisties with, this is the category for you.  The great thing is in 2011 you have choices that were not there before.

BMW R 1200 GS / R 1200 GS Adventure

The “big” GS has been the leader in the High Performance Adventure Touring category for years, mainly because it was the only game in town.  This motorcycle does just about everything well.  It’s reliable and has a near endless list of add-ons that will hall all your important stuff on your adventure.  Both options powered by the near bullet proof Boxer engine, which produces a wide, strong and usable torque curve, which means that all you have to do is twist the throttle and the GS will go.  Shifting optional. 

Throw in some extra cash and you can have BMW’s Electronic Suspension Adjustment system and Anti-Lock Breaks.  Hey, this is High Performance so you might as well have it all.

I Want It All!

Picture yourself packing your bags for an adventure on the road.  You don’t know where you will end up, how long you’ll be gone or what roads you’ll explore.  You’re escaping!  Of course you’ll need to pack enough for your escape and want to enjoy the trip in comfort.

Over the next few posts, I’ll be reviewing the options for your ultimate escape and there are plenty of options available.  It’s not easy designing an all purpose, adventure touring motorcycle, however a few manufacturers have risen to the challenge.

So until the next post, start planning your adventure.
