This is outstanding news. I’m eagerly looking forward to reading what’s to come given the high quality of Hagerty media. Since you’re soliciting feedback: On the R1250GS, I’d love to read some detailed discussion of the electronic rider aides. Specifically, how well does the traction control work and has the anti-wheelie become less intrusive and abrupt on the current incarnation of the big bimmer? On my 2014 1200GS, the power cuts out rather harshly as soon as the front wheel begins to lift under a hard launch or the rear tire begins to slip. How well does the electronic suspension handle a 200+ pound American with a full load out of panniers and gear? For specific bikes I’d love to see reviewed: BMW S1000RR: How good is this bike on the street and is it livable day to day with commuting duty? Is the M package worth the extra scratch and will the carbon fiber wheels hold up to potholes on the street? Harley Davidson Pan America 1250: How does Harley’s first stab at the adventure segment stack up to the Euro and Japanese manufacturers that have been dominating this segment for years? KTM 500/350 EXC-F: Are these really the ultimate dual sport bikes from power to weight fun factor perspective? Does one really need to “de-smog” the bike and spend $600+ on a new ECU off the showroom floor to richen the fuel mixture enough to make the bike usable and ensure long term reliability? Big picture questions: What do euro 5 emission standards entail and what does it mean for US consumers? I’d be really interested in reading any data driven reporting comparing long term reliability and build quality of the various manufacturers.
