Africa is a wild and wonderful place. The people and places are diverse, extreme and beautiful. I’ve only recently got the urge to see what’s out there for myself so when Bill asked if I wanted to test the F 800 GS Adventure I jumped at the opportunity. Would this bike be all I needed or does its big brother, the R 1200 GS Adventure, still hold all the trumps?
If you ask anyone to name a 600cc sports bike the chances are they’re going to spit out the Honda CBR600RR. It seems like it’s been around, in one form or another, forever. But the 600cc sports bike class seems, sadly, to be slipping away into the cauldron of ‘nothing has really changed so why bother.’
