‘The 1150GS is re­li­able, sweet-han­dling and feels so planted and safe to ride’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

Of course, it might all have been so dif­fer­ent – Mcgre­gor and Boor­man had been primed to ride KTMS be­fore the Aus­trian man­u­fac­turer U-turned.

“At the time it was a mas­sive dis­ap­point­ment,” said Boor­man. “Ewan was al­ways keen on the BMW, though I wasn’t con­vinced this gi­gan­tic bike would be the right tool for the job. But after some train­ing days down in Wales I ended up think­ing it was fan­tas­tic!”

The 1150GS has that ef­fect on peo­ple. Lots of them.
