    These are not the only ones, sensing the demand and popularity many other major players are planning to enter this market segment. Such as Honda with its redesigned and beefed up legendary XRV Africa Twin and Aprilia with 1200 Tuareg.

    Big Beamer has been a deserving leader so far but now with these challengers and more to come it is going to be little tough.

    One more question remains to be answered and that is have the others got what it takes to be up there. May be one of them should start looking for some one like Ewan Mcgregor and Charlie Boorman.

    I work only because it pays for three F's. Food for me, Fuel for my bike and Film for my camera.
