I could never get past the GS's "dirt bike ugly" look, but that is a 
personal prejudice, admittedly. That aside, Cycle Canada magazine said the 
R1200GS is the best bike ever made. Before anyone launches into a "bollocks" 
thread, take that with a grain of salt and read it as "the R1200GS is an 
extremely good motorcycle and we really like it a lot."
