In today's (24 Jan 2012) Wall Street Journal there was an article about exercise using a motorcycle - no it did not involve picking up a dropped bike! In the article one individual returns to riding after a 15 year absence. This person gets a BMW off-road bike and takes a RawHyde course and decides to ride along with the Dakar race (different route from the actual racers, however).

The photos accompanying the article show a K bike not the expected GS. This looks like a fluff piece that required little research or knowledge by the author.
