I got a picture of it. Too embarrassed to post it. It was a failed experiment at a higher flow system.

Finally test rode the 2013 R1200GSW Saturday. Wow! Looks like I'm trading up with the new GSA in January.

Don't get me wrong, I am also a BMW GS fan, but since my second BMW leaking gasoline in my garage because of an faulty quick release-plug , I am a little pi$$$$ off.
Now I learned that BMW know about this problem (there are some recalls but mine was not included)
and my dealership didn't tell me anything about it.
Even when I had to pay for it, that would be better than stay in nowhere with a burning GS.
I am going on the road next saturday for three weeks. I just were lucky, though.

And I admit, if I could afford the new R1200GS, I would go also with the new one.

Have a good ride Bob. I took the pictures down quite a long time ago (and stopped posting ride reports), so all one can do now is read that old RR. Book yourself a room at Hostal El Farol.

I think that it was Mike Mike who told me that they might be having some serious problems with that bike's handling...as in killing well known test rider and moto journalist... anyone know anything about this?

The guy was killed at the introduction for the journalists (in Africa?). I don't think it was the bike's fault. I'm not sure that they figured out what exactly happened. One of the ADV inmates was on that introduction ride but did not see the accident.

I encountered no street handling issues.
