Our Motorcycles:

Some people ask, why we donīt take the 1150 GS, but the "small GS" for our trip. For us the 1150 GS is the best bike for touring. But for our trip we think, they are too weighty. For example riding dirt trails, or motorbikes in an aeroplane (cost of carriage often calculated by weight). Another argument against it, because the 1150 GS use 1 litre oil for 1000 kilometres! An alternative solution it could be the new 1200 GS, at least because of its lighter weight. But against it, the 1200 GS itīs too expensive for us and there are just new vehicles to buy at the moment. Above all there arenīt any field report, because itīs a new developed vehicule.
Weīre glad with our Dakars :-) We think, it was absolutely the right choice!! And after the trip we still got the same opinion.
