Most excellent, Honda needs exactly that. The guys on ADV are clamouring for it to be compared to everything and anything. So the fact that consumers are able to make these evaluations before journalists taint things can only be a good thingThat was a dealer demo ride out. They had several rival manufacturers bikes to test against
That's actually quite encouraging to hear - I test rode an 800 GSA and really liked it - very chuckable. The only problem was the vibrations - couldn't see myself doing any real distance on it. So I started looking at the 1200GS which is...different but àlso really chuckable surprisingly (for me).FWIW, my salesman says that, in his opinion, the nearest competitor is the F800GS after riding all the bikes that were there.
