guys, you wont believe what happend today.
Visited Mr. Jens Arbel at UX-V.
He's the man in charge, when it comes to manual, and repair-manual writing etc. Wanted to know something about the new GS. Since his team has to write the repair-manuals, they are very familiar with the bike. But instead of telling me some details.....





wait a moment.....








wait a moment....






he invited me to WORK MYSELF ON THE BIKE!!!!

Next week, I'm a gifted man. I'm Mr. Arbel's personal "trainee" as he called me, I'll help him to set some fixingtimes (AW's). I.e. he tares the bike apart, and writes down how long it takes OR how much you'll have to pay for this certain work. (I'll make him hurry)

Sadly, I'm not able to proof anything. I mustn't tell anything, and I mustn't take photographs. It drives me crazy, as I try to find a way to tell you at least a bit...

Well, we'll see.
Am more exited than a child on christmaseve.

greetings,
Matthias

Clandestine industry insiders posting under an alias, are highly encouraged on new model threads.

All these changes will probably add up to the bike having less storage space under the seat. And a smaller tool kit as well.

The toolkit will be replaced by keine Aufschlüsselung Technologie.

It's a 3D rendering by Luca Bar from the various spy shots that have been floating around.

I sincerely regret the unhappiness this image has caused your sandy vagina.
Your refund is in the mail.
As the high priest of the GS lineage, I'm sure the image you produce will be mo bettah.

The latest iterations of the big GS have gotten really busy-looking. This is much better. And I'm glad he got rid of that ugly silver piece at the front of the gas tank side-panel air-scoop doodad.

As much as I like insider news and am excited about this bike, don't violate even the spirit of your non disclosure clause. Really. It is a very fast way to get fired.

Congrats on the new job! should be fun.

Another reason the $50 I spent for Jim VonBaden's R1200 Service DVD's were a wise investment! Everyone should learn how to replace all fluids, adjust valves and perform basic services on their bike!

Let's meet in a completely unrelated forum, let's say Meet Packaging Forum.
I will open a thread about the new meat packaging machine coming out of Korea.
You register under an unconspicous name, such as DasMeatPaker. Please change than picture of yours...
We ask you questions about the new equipment. Power? Breaks? Consumption. You spill it out.

Ooops. Your boss has now read this.
