S. Africa Riding on big bikes.

I must be taking it too easy on my BMW GS. Here's the result of big bikes and bald tires.

As much as dearly want a BMW GS, I have no intention of riding it on terrain like that. About 10 seconds before the guy went down in the rocks on the white one, I thought that the sweet Marlboro tank wouldn't last long with me in the rocks.

Kieth , I think the manufactures saw how we ride HERE in Oregon ( and Washington) and decided
to start with plastic tanks. Point in case just remember the Lone Wolf up the creek run.

Always have a passenger, they can help you pick up the big machine.
LOL.
