One question. In the pic above, the view straight on of the bike on the left makes it look much wider than I remember my old '07 GS being. Do the new radiators and shrouds really make it that wide, or is it just the angle that the picture was taken? It seems the rad shrouds are nearly as wide as the panniers......

Hmmmmm good question, I don't think it looks overly wide myself.

It might be a little wider but I thought the oil-cooled GS'es seemed a little ponderous when checking them out and when I sat on the WC GS this past weekend it seemed visually and physically smaller although it is about the same size.

Always a pleasure to deal with.



Great looking bike, BMW have done a super job.
They all seem to have the LED lights. But no wire spokes.

Hope to see mine soon at the dealership, but I got the impression it will be delayed.

Remember the new panniers are narrower too, at least in non-expanded mode.

On US bikes, what will be the OEM tires?

I am not certain. The bike going around at the Progressive IMS had Michelin Anakee 3's.

Used to have that... but not any more (doesn't life suck?).
