Well, mehh, see my for sale ad.
Funny thing is, it's the only bike my non-biking friends wanted to take a pic of. And I've had a 916 for years, and the RSV4 is kinda purdy to me, too. People eh...

Lol. KTM's are hideous. KTM designers do their apprenticeship making paper aeroplanes.

Motorbike: The all mighty GS
Default Re: First time cruiser

Cruisers are the most head turners hands down. People like shiny things and deep sounding exhausts....

I thought I was going to be the popular kid when I got the R6, but no one gives an absolute fuck. The GS brings more attention to the middle aged crisis kind of lads, those that wanted the sportscage but drive around on a wagon.

Taking about the GS, I feel an ADV bike coming your way. It's the perfect combination of comfort, cruising abilities, "fast-ish" performance and twisties capabilities.


Cheers,
Rami

Have you try them? ADV bikes have a shit ton of acccesories like low seats, lowering kits, etc so you can pretty much adjust them to what you want.

I'm a small guy myself and with a little bit of technique I have no issues handling the GS around. Forget about two feet down for sure, but you don't need it anyways.

If you like the bikes, I would encourage you to give them a try. They're plenty out there now these days too.

Cheers,
Rami
