2012 BMW G650GS Sertao First Ride


1st ride review is out and sounds like BMW has a winner with the reinvention of the Dakar model.  Notice the review makes note of the easy on and off ABS feature.  Something Triumph needs to copy for their Tiger 800 bikes.  Said it once and I will say it again, Triumph if you haven’t all ready add the the ABS switch for 2013 and informatics button.  😉
