GS own­ers love a pic­nic

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Thought you might like to hear about a the­ory my six-year-old son, Char­lie, came up with about why ad­ven­ture bikes like BMW’S R1200GS al­ways hang around in pairs (has any­one else no­ticed that?). He told me that ad­ven­ture bikes are also known as ‘pic­nic bikes’, as the me­tal boxes are for car­ry­ing pic­nic food like sausage rolls, cakes and a bot­tle of juice, and they are able to go any­where to have their pic­nic. I told him that he might be onto some­thing there. “And be­sides,” he added, “who wants to go on a pic­nic on their own?” Dan Thoma­son, email
