    The weeks MCN - adventure test

    Evening all

    Has anyone picked up this weeks "More Crap than News" yet? Big piece on "proper" adventure testing of GS1200, explorer, KTM 990 adventure, and Yamaha Tenere

    KTM wins out for real off roading (no surprise there), Beemer and triumph fairly even, yam scores a bit better despite spewing oil from a cracked sump midway through test......

    Tiger was commended for on-road, but being too powerful off-road went against it.  A good read and fairly balanced views IMHO

    The explorer is a tourer, all this off road testing is nonsence.

    Why did they not include teh Honda Cross runner in the test?? I have one sitting outside the office today.
    XC in White on the road...(and off)
