You all know Gixxer really rides a 1200GS Rallye with all the extras? And he manages 750km a year on it, in between posting on here... And he wears a colour-coordinated BMW suit... And he has a discount card for Starbucks...

I'm after getting a DeLonghi Magnifica S. Great yoke.

Boxer twin. The one Gixer loves. Built in Germany not far from the Czech border near KTM. Hand built by Italian technicians. Can't say I can fault it at all so far.

You posh fucker
I have 2 of them. (The Magnifica... not the S). One in the kitchen and one in the bedroom. I refuse to get out of bed until I've had 2 cups, and the kitchen is too far away
I don't know how people drink that instant muck.

That's why the gs has those big boxes on the sides It's for carrying your two spare DeLonghi Magnifica S They come standard with the bike instead of a tool kit Two DeLonghi Magnifica S and a panic whistle for when the arse falls out of the bike and you have to take it back to the main dealer only joking. gwan the gs heurs

I would have thought a BMW rider wouldn't be drinking that muck from Insomnia.
That said, it's probably similar in quality to the free stuff you get at BMW dealers. No accounting for taste

That would be no coincidence I'm sure. What better marketing stunt than the lads taking the new HP out for a spin around the Americas??
