I'm thinking of buying an Africa Twin. Live on Cape Cod. In the past, have owned 1150GS and older Multistrada and many others.

Am I right, one has to post five times here in order to see links? I hate to post clutter...

jay, i just responded to keith's inquiry about switching up to an AT from a KLR. funny, I had an 1150gs that i sold after getting the AT. why? just didn't have the light, playful, fun feel of the AT. like a german king tiger tank. solid, well made, good character from the boxer, super deep 6th gear, a lovely bike in most ways. but for me it didn't have the plush legs of the AT, nor quite the rangy seating position, and certainly not the addictive power with the dct throwing cogs at engine in uninterrupted zings of acceleration. just no comparison in the fun category. i will say the gs is probably a better highway bike than the AT. the AT handles much funner and wants to get into the dirt, something the gs sort of put up with if you made it do it. tim
