Nah... Looks too much like the GS, that one. The narration was funny, though.

Yeah it does look a little like a GS

I had a good time writing the narration for that video. I was cracking myself up. I guess I just like to make fun of those guys who are fanatically loyal to a certain brand of bike. It's all about having a good time, and that can be done on any type of bike.

Also BMW can go a little overboard with it's advertising campaigns. I just wanted to see if I could out do them.

Just for your future information, Ted Simons bike was a unit construction 500cc bike ( actually 490cc), I had one back in 1961 and they were great bikes.
