Has anyone on here got a DR and a GS how do the two compare ?
it was interesting reading that the DR compares well to a xt660 I was quite surprised considering the age difference.

Probably use the DR800 the most as the tenere is nearly new and the weather has been shite ,The Bmw is lovely and smooth but is a heavy f..ker with the boxes and stuff on it ,They are all different and all do some things better than the others ,just depends what your wanting to do .
