The wait is over. After years of hand-wringing by the Bavarian faithful, months of rampant speculation and numerous leaked spy shots, the all-new BMW R 1200 GS has been officially unveiled at the International Motorcycle, Scooter and Bicycle Fair—better known as Intermot—in Cologne, Germany. It has... Read more »

And an RT hasn’t ridden through the pages of Rider since July 2008, when we compared it to the Moto Guzzi Norge 1200—right about the time gas prices... Read more »

When I started working at Rider a few years ago, a friend of mine asked, “Now that riding is work, what will you do for fun?” I scoffed at the suggestion that motorcycling would ever feel like work, but my friend’s comment proved to have merit. Since I ride and write about motorcycles 9-to-5, my... Read more »

In much the same way BMW produced a more offroad worthy (and subsequently very popular) F 650 GS twin with its F 650 GS Dakar, now the German company has announced it will offer a “dirtier” version of its entry-level G 650 GS single called the G 650 GS Sertão. Named after a desert in northern... Read more »

September 23, 2011

I had a fun little excursion the other day. Our test BMW G 650 GS (Rider, November 2011) was due to be returned to the media facilities and driver Dan was booked solid. Would I take a ride down to Torrance and return the bike in exchange for a K 1600 GTL? Hmmm, tough choice: burn down the highway on... Read more »
