    current bike

    My current bike is a 2005 (K4 model) Suzuki GSX1400

    I love the bike and its gentle giant nature.
    It has 106hp but 125nm or torque!
    Pulls cleanly in any gear from 2,000rpm

    However I am beginning to get re bitten by the GS bug and am giving serious thought to returning to the fold!

    why swop suzuki reliability for doubtful bmw? i went from a gs to a vstrom 650, not because of reliability although the gs had a couple of probs during my 6yrs of ownership. i changed for less weight due to advancing yrs and am well pleased with the vstrom.

    The GS is a great bike, I've had 7 new GS's over a 15 year period. Now have Yamaha Super Tenere 1200. I made this decision after months of detailed research. It's so underrated, I covered over 120,000 miles on GS's, great bike but I now wish I had considered my S10 years ago!!

    Did you also look at the V Strom 1000 and how do you find the S10? I had an 05 GS and am looking for a long distance bike now - reliable, decent power, good weather protection plus non- corroding would be nice (why I sold the GS in the end).

    I have 2 main dealers nearby, one Suzuki and the other Yamaha / Triumph so am looking to test ride the S10, Tiger and V Strom.
