    You mean, riding to the North Pole isn't on your bucket list? Come on Vance, I thought you'd be first in line!

    I think ALL the GS's look cool. What they need is one that will pick itself up after you drop it. You all know we ain't what we used to be.

    I wonder how that's different from the Christini Two-Wheel drive that KTM's offered for more than 10 years now. (If you're not familiar with Christini, google KTM 2 wheel drive motorcycle).

    The GS uses an electric motor to power the front wheel while the Christinis front wheel is mechanically driven from the engine.
