    SMT is a bike for ponces, get the man's ADV.

    you will love hauling it around any lanes, B roads or fast ones. and you'll be comfy

    The ADV will do most of what the SMT will do.
    But the SMT wont do half what the ADV can

    ADV is the best of both worlds.

    When I had my 950SM I always wished I could take it off road. The ADV is not quite as sharp as the 950SM but its more than enough.

    Get an Adventure you won't be sorry. SMTs are great at what that do. A one trick pony.

    The Adventure is a great bike and to be honest more than enough on or off road for most

    Stick some decent tyres on the Adv and it will be good on the road. I've put Trailsmarts on mine and it holds the road well. Steering, braking and ultimate grip will never be in the same league as SM/SMT, but it'll be razor sharp compared to the GS1200 swollen bloater. I've ridden my mate's and getting the front wheel in the air between B road bends is never going to happen like it can on the KTM. You won't be disappointed.

    I got shot of my GS ADV which was great at everything but too too heavy so got an 990.SM-T.Will not beat the GS bar it's weight but I have no regrets as the smit is like an upright race bike. Fast.
