What filling up in Malawi reveals about the F800GS

Guy Procter, 12 May 2011 16:46

Here’s a great argument for the superiority of the F800GS over its bigger brother, the R1200GS. It’s lighter, goes further on a tank of gas, is easier to pick up when you (inevitably) drop it, and it’s even fun at filling up time. Where’s the filler cap? Not buried under the tankbag, no sirree!

They’ve taken it enduro riding in Wales, up disused ski-runs in the ...

Guy Procter, 22 December 2009 17:00

We knew the Kawasaki Versys was a versatile bike, but this versatile? The unknown owner has given the bike a proper off-road going-over, fitting long-travel forks and shock, knobblies and a cobbled bash-guard. The mods should make the £5895 Kawasaki a half-way decent rival for BMW’s similarly parallel-twin-powered F800GS (£6700). The mods should cost you, erm, about the difference. Via ...
