Let's take a quick look at how we work: we have the strict principle of four. Four eyes look at each test, four buttocks have owned at least every test bike and four brain halves have thought about it. And this in a changing formation (see videos) so that no darlings sneak in here.
When Dietmar selected me as a partner for the GS test, I was surprised at first, because I am definitely not the GS type. Dietmar already. I'm definitely not the boxer type. Dietmar already. I like analog instruments and have made it my life's mission to never read a manual. Dietmar likes to test besides motorcycles and detailed the latest mobile phone types.
As it turned out, this was the ideal composition to be able to illuminate the motorcycle from all sides and to come to a conclusion. It is helpful that we quickly agreed on the main evaluations, which makes the test part of this text short. In a nutshell: The BMW is a great motorcycle. The chassis, for example (electronically adjustable with our tester) is the ideal compromise between long-distance comfort and sufficient handiness. BMW obviously has a secret magic potion, which they fill in the chassis: Once on the road, the GS, which is not exactly lightweight at 250 kilograms, seems to be shrinking in all dimensions: hands-on and precise progress.
