At least that would provide amusement. "Which brand of espresso beans should I buy? Do I home roast? What maker do I use? How often do I have to descale it?"

How about VERT HEAD - to reflect the new alignment of the intakes and exhaust?

names

Just call the thing a GS or GSW and get on to whether it rides worth a S....T

would have rather had a litre with a 105 HP and 475 lbs. but so far nothing other than the cool factor has me lusting after anything other than the already scratched, dropped 12 I already have.

after all I have a 100GS as a backup

let's get back to talking about how the bike will be referred to along with its forum....all of this other talk is complete nonsense.

I couldn't agree more.

Anyone ride one yet? I'd like to know how the suspension is compared to the 1200. Oh, and how snappy is it? Will it wheelie?

You know, the important stuff.

And the rumor will be that it's because the owner used the wrong anti-freeze which ate the seals in the water pump and the caused the crank bearings to seize up.....

So if you use Red Bull as coolant it a BullHead?

It better wheelie, if you can wheelie a Goldwing with a passenger! It should do Monster wheelies, MonsterHead?

OK, I'm ready for the first press rides. Hopefully, that's not 3-4 months from now.
