I went with some friends to the bike show yesterday, and spent a while looking at the new GS. Compared to the outgoing model, it seems more solid and purposeful. The pictures don't do it enough justice. BMW has spent a lot of time on the important things, and although I obviously haven't ridden it, I think this bike will be a corker.

The side stand and centre stand are more rugged, the screen adjuster is a fantastic idea, and should have been thought of years ago. The new display is much better. There are lots of buttons, but shouldn't take too long to get used to. The cross spoke wheels have a Matt finish which looks good. Overall, BMW has hit the nail on the head with this new bike IMO.

It's gonna be a long 3 months
