Yeap and it's the same clutch as the S1000RR uses, so it's pretty beefy.

Hearing that each dealer will receive (at least?) two bikes upon the first delivery, one of which will most likely be used as a demo.

Thoughts?

I use a 12 liter fuel bladder for longer runs here in Western Australia with my 800 GS. Two if its a real stretch. When you don't need it role it up.

The Touring is going to be the big seller; 85% of all previous R1200GS's had the Dynamic & Premium packs on & the Touring is the equivalent.
Looks like cross spoke wheels are not included with the Touring pkg? I wonder if you have to add the additional options to the Enduro pkg or the spoke rims to the Touring?

Included in the Enduro pack, but a £320 option on the TE. I'll stick with cast I think!

Option packages for the U.S. have not been announced. May be the same as UK or not. Typically U.S. is different.

Could just be the recording. When I play guitar I think I sould a little like Eric Clapton. When I play it back on my phone not so much!

muffler sounds

I don't know. The sound at idle is OK but when the throttle is blipped, it sounds like someone's passing gas . I've had an 08 and a '10 GS and those mufflers sounded much better than this one.

I think the difference is that we are hearing an engine that spins up a lot faster than the previous boxer motors. Also an unloaded engine is going to sound a lot different than when you are riding. Have you really stood behind your bike and had someone rev it to 6k or more and listened to it? I know I haven't. Also, it seems that this engine was probably cold, which could also impact its sound.
