About the only publication I buy now, and seriously considering kicking it into touch after reading the article this week by "Neil Murray" the used bike expert who has a column every week telling us about the best used bargains etc, the heading this week is "Copycat used bargains" first he is citing Triumphs Trophy 1200 tourer as a copycat of a BMWR1200RT that failed to capture the market and is a good bike and a great used bargain, then goes on to say he'd be happy to bet the S10 wont be long for this world, as it has failed as a copycat BMWR1200GS and asks why buy it when you can have a GS?......No wonder the S10 doesnt sell when dickhead journos like him spout shit in that rag of a newspaper, and the road testers from the same paper slated the S10 the same when it was launched and really drove the knife home for a great machine that has a different engine configuration for a start if it's a copycat? Well I'd be happy to bet he hasn't even cocked a leg over an S10 either, so his opinion is worth doodly squat, and I sincerely hope his next shit is a hedgehog followed by pineapple!!! Rant Over! :mad:

MSN are probably the most biased reviewers out there, they are getting well payed from BMW ,I wouldn’t buy any bike based on MSN reviews.
I remember seeing an article about the tenere and they gave a different grading against the GS and one of the grading was reliability and the GS won,after that I looked closely on the bike reviews and came to the conclusion their full of crap.
Guess it’s just another company trying to make money.
