While at the Goodwood Festival of Speed a couple of weeks ago, I was chatting with an MCN reader about the BMW 90th Anniversary display, each of us singling out the models we%X92d own if money was no object.

Staff Blog: I bet it won%X92t go off-road%X85

Staff Blog: Hello Moto(rrad)

If you%X92d told me ten years ago that I%X92d be ecstatic at the prospect of riding an R1200GS as a longterm test bike, I%X92d have been breathless with laughter before any sort of verbal response could form on my lips. But back in the here and now, I%X92m just that %X96 ecstatic. So what%X92s changed? Well there%X92s no point pretending that...
