    Seriously thinking about dumping my harley and buying this BMW GS 800 beast...I love my bike, but am truly disappointed in the paint falling off and rusting after 6 years..That's fucked up.....I figure they build them for the 99% of harley douches who only ride on sunny days for 6 months a year...fucking posers. I'm also embarrassed to be even associated with the harley culture. What a bunch of tools...when I was a kid harley meant the cool badass guy around the block who got the hottest ladies. Now it means obesity, low IQ, diabeetus, redneck values and basic ignorance.....disappointing


    I totally fell in love with the 1200 GS I rented in Europe, but they are 25K...out of my price range...seems I can get an 800 for 8K or less. I commute all year long to work on my bike...I need a real bike IMO :grad:

    Anyone ever have one? Thoughts?

    i fricking love those bikes. i was interested in adventure biking a few years back and looked at the forums where dudes would post their motorcycles and pics of their trips. loved it but never followed up on it.

    When I bought my 1st bike in '91 it was a HD FLSTF and I got it because it was a cool looking bike that I could work on. I soon realized the "culture" that came with it. I was constantly annoyed with the douches that bled black and orange. Ponderous. If I ever get another bike it will not be an HD unless I get something older.

    I have ridden a few BMWs and they were all top shelf. I'd either go that route or get a Ducati if I wanted something more aggressive. Good luck!

    6 years commuting on this bike, NBD, never been down (no jinx :pray:)

    Close calls are a regular thing on bikes around here. How you react is the key....part of what I love, the challenge. The deadly seriousness of it makes you feel alive...every day

    Worst that has happened was this idiot lady was doing her best to kill me, while texting and being a retard....I accelerated drastically out of the situation and she only managed to jack my rear tire.....a good bump, but I didn't go down. I circled back and kicked off her mirror...fucking bitch

    Oh and now that I think of it, the first 10 mins I got the big BMW in Barcelona(I really can't believe they just let anyone drive on out with a brand new 25K bike,LOL) I was getting used to the high ride and bike geometry, crazy euro traffic and totally failed to see a truck passing me on the left as I was turning...Fucking guy was alert and saved my life by not nailing me...Dog bless that fucking guy
