100 GS, Africa Twin or Transalp????????
I drive a R100GS at the moment and I am not unhappy with it. What I don´t like is the milage, the bad brakes and some minor things like windprotection, etc. Now I want to go on a longer trip next year and am a little worried about reliability. My bike has 70k Km on the clock right know and will have at least 90k when I leave. And from what I hear by then the driveshaft is due, maybe the gearbox and some other things. Now I think about getting a Honda VTwin, cos they seem to be extremly reliable and fuel efficiency is supposed to be way better. Is that the case. And what about offroad capability? Is the TA as capable off road than the 2v-GS, how about the AT. I am going alone, but later will do smaller trips two-up. What would you suggest. My main interest is reliability and fuelefficiency rather than power but the bike needs to be going over the rocks and the sand at least as good as the (standart) GS, which is not really doing to good on that. Thanx for your advice.
