The BMW R 1200 GS Adventure can take anything you can throw at it, with the 1170cc 4-stroke engine to the shaft drive to the 8.7 gallon fuel tank it can get you out of most anywhere you take it. You will be able to take it further off road or on road and still not worry about the stopping power with the dual disc brake on the front and the single disc brake on the rear.
