13 Miles and those colors? Yeah that'd be BMW SFs 2013 pre-WC bikes. http://www.bmwmotorcycle.com/2013-BM...tShowroom=1111

Sounds like 'Autoevolution' should get their facts straight for legitimacy of their site.

Well looks are subjective so to each his own I guess. I personally think they did a very good job on the refresh. Nothing drastic but subtle updates and I am sure a few changes that needed to be done for functional reasons. It looks meaner in my opinion. That said I like the looks of many Adv bikes. The S10 looks good to me as well.

The hex head GSA will continue to be available along side the new GS hence the 2013 model. I'm sure the wet head will be intro'd as a 2014 model in the US and as a 2013 model everywhere else.

Hello to you as well Obie, I am still lurking around here and MS...... Don't have as much time lately it seems, but then there never really is enough of that. Hope all is well with you also.

You cant compare the cost of gasoline with the price of other suff. You guys in EU pay a whole lot more than we in the US do for fuel.

How did you work out 21300 with options, as BMW haven't announced pricing yet?

I agree it ugly with fat sport bike tire which i hate, i liked them see them drop the boxer entirely and give me like the 800 but the whole kit and like the R1200GS is. they odng just because they kno how much they love boxers but they should drop the boxer and make an egnien that doesn stick out the side GS big bike.

And exactly why should they do that? Just because you don't like an engine sticking out sideways? That's a good reason, of course, but it might not be enough to convince a multi-billion dollar company that their #1 selling motorcycle sucks because of that.

I am sure you are right. When I put a deposit down on mine my dealer referred to it as a 2014.
