We do get a bit of stick periodically at RiDE for talking about the BMW R1200GS. Britain’s favourite larger-capacity motorbike is hugely popular and really can do it all (see page 104)…but it’s far from being the only great adventure bike.
In this issue we’re also looking at some of the alternatives – the Yamaha Super Tenere, Suzuki V-Strom 1000 and the great-value used dual-support machines you can get if you’re looking for a big bike that is, as so many people often point out, “not another GS”.
Mind you, even BMW make an alternative to the GS: the new R nineT Urban G/S. We’ve taken it on an adventurous ride with the equally left-field Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled and the popular Triumph Street Scrambler. Can these retro-styled alternative adventure bikes deliver practicality and fun? Find out on page 14.

Classic Bike – August 2017£4.20
This is The Green Issue, but not some kind of environmentally-motivated political message those three words now suggest. Far from it. It’s a celebration of a time when green was mean, a time of Kawasaki’s outrageous two-strokes triples and ground-breaking four-strokes. A time when big horsepower was everything and chassis technology was struggling to catch up.
In the early 1970s riders were going Kawasaki crazy on the road with the wild 500cc and 750cc two-strokes. On track it was fast and furious too, with people like Mick Grant at the TT and short circuit heroes like Yvon DuHamel and Art Baumann struggling to tame the ‘green meanies’.
Then came the four-strokes. Godier Genoud won endurance races with the Z1/Z1000 power units and Eddie Lawson earned legendary status racing a Z1000 in American superbike that saw Kawasaki develop a road bike as a tribute to him.
It was an incredible period of gas-guzzling, tyre-smoking madness – a green era to unsettle all of today’s green campaigners.

BMW’s marketing department would disagree, but Yamaha practically invented the adventure bike. Their XT500 (First tested in Bike in March 1977) was the first time that a production trail bike was a convincing road bike. Modified XTs won the first two Paris Dakar rallies.
The big-tanked XT600 Tenere (first tested in Bike in March 1984) tapped into Dakar rally credibility and become the bike of choice for round the world riders in the eighties and nineties.
The XTZ750 Super Tenere (first tested in Bike in May ’89) led the big trailie (they weren’t called adventure bikes then) boom that swept Europe in the nineties, and Super Ten-derived bikes won the Dakar seven times.
Now the Yamaha revival that began with the introduction of the MT-09 (first tested in Bike in November 2013) is about to produce a bike that lives up to their adventure bike heritage.
We got the exclusive ride on the concept version of the new 700cc adventure bike. Off-road editor Jon Pearson reckons it’s very good and as soon as there’s a production model we’ll be riding that, hopefully across the Sahara (I’m volunteering). Bike has always delivered the best tests and insight and we’ll continue to do so.
And we’ve got the best readers, as evidence by the constant quality and insight of the mail that we receive (letters on page 24). If you’ve got a story, an insight or an opinion then write. Or come and see us at the Bike trackday on the 4th August (details page 119).

For every project or restoration that makes it off the work bench, then out of the MoT station to start its new life, there are many more that get left at the back of the shed, and forgotten about.
We’ve all been there. Even PS’s prolific project bike builder Alan Seeley. Our Technical Ed’s once brimming enthusiasm for his Ducati ST4-powered 888 replica began to dry up for his homemade Italian twin before he could realise its potential.
Fellow PS contributor Rupert Paul couldn’t bear to see Alan’s hard work go to waste so he’s unearthed the Duke from the back of the shed, dusted it down, and has sworn to finish what Al started. See if he’s bitten off more than he, and indeed Alan, can chew from page 89.
Two men who bit chunks out their competition before coming back for more legendary tuner Pops Yoshimura and his two-time AMA title winning rider Wes Cooley. Pops and Wes showed their sheer class in the late ’70s and early ’80s American rave scene by beating factory backed Kawasaki and Honda teams, and in the process making Suzuki and its GS1000 superbike into racing Legends. Wes tells PS his story from page 48. And what a story it is.
