Well, I test rode the 2014 R1200GSA. Quite a machine.

Now I just need to go ride a few r12s to find out if I want a new water cooled...

Ah, ok. That makes sense. You do want to disable it before climbing huge loose stuff. I've never noticed it kicking in as long as you keep some momentum. It does allow more wheel spin than I thought...

Yes, you can also disable the abs and traction control.

What did you mean by "can't get any good speed up" in enduro mode. I've got 2k miles on mine, haven't noticed.

I'm pretty much settled on replacing my stock rear with a k60, but I've heard there's better fronts to use. Does anyone here know of a good front 50/50 front that outperforms the k60?

I live close to Silverton, in Farmington. I should really sign up for this to put the new f800gsa through her paces. I've grown up jeeping on the passes of the San Juans and haven't gotten up there...

It's an adventure model, so no adjustable screen. Maybe it's something I'll have to get used to.
