Come on, cheer up, and don't take my joke too seriously... If there were no competition, all bikes would be the same...I also wonder which color scheme will be the fastest one? ;)

In jolly olde Sweden we get 5 weeks holidays every year, by law
Which give us time to use or high priced vehicles, when it's not pissing down, which it does every other day.
I can live with my 50% income tax as I believe I get something in return

Over here it is 4 weeks holiday as legal minimum. But my employer gives 9 weeks.

I think the dealers offer simular packages.

My First priority is to have a comfortable all weather cruiser. Heated grips Are essential to me.

Got those as well. With our climate that's a must have if you want to ride in comfort for more than 4 months a year

To keep it simple i've approached the option list like a checklist. I've got every single one crossed. I spend twice as much time on my bike than in my car.

Canada/USA is low, you start with ~5 days vacation, in Canada you can get up to 6-7 weeks vacation if you stay with the same employer for many many years (not sure about USA)...

Premium plus package looks good. If past is indicative, a Similarily equipped Adventure will go for $2k more, or $21,000, cases another $1,500, discount about $1,500, so an Adventure with cases should be about $21,000 or there abouts. Hope we at least see the adventure by fall. I may be ready for a new bike in about two years, timing is about right.

Read a little closer, It says transmission oil pressure.

Possible oil leaks on 2013 BMW R1200GS
2-7-2013
by moto123.com
BMW Motorrad will recall 31 R1200GS motorcycles from the 2013 model year because their transmission oil pressure may be too high, causing the output shaft sealing ring to leak.

Oil leakage ahead of the rear tire could render the bike unstable and lead to a crash.

BMW Motorrad dealers will therefore install an oil restrictor to reduce oil pressure at the transmission output.
