Hello Jim and welcome.A warm hello to all the members. I live in India and been touring since past 3 years. Have accumulated 60,000+ Kms so far. Looking to upgrade to the GS to start touring with my better half. Looking for a great experience ahead.
Hi,Hello Jim and welcome.
You say you plan to start touring with your better half, as in 2 up on the 310?
If so it may present a bit of a power issue unless you both are quite light in weight.
It is after all, just a single cylinder with 34hp.
Loaded to the max, going uphill will require a few downshifts as it really isn't a torquey beast.
Not saying it can't be done, just that there will be some compromises.
