Wunderlich accesories for the new GS

On their official site - http://www.wunderlich-bmw.com/en/shop/3/ - there is no section dedicated to new R1200 GS, though I've seen few posts before a radiator protection. Is there anything that I missed?

Can anyone of you please, send me the part number / the link with new GS' accessories?

It's here and so is more snow !!

Will this winter ever end, got the call yesterday and mine has arrived. Enough of following this thread day to day wishing. My BIG wish now is for the snow to melt, impressions as soon as I get a ride in. My 2004 was a love hate relationship for nine years and 115K but clearly there is only one ride for me.

On the German Wunderlich site there is a 1200GS LC category. See here: http://www.wunderlich.de/Shop/R-1200-GS-LC/

The people at Wunderlich America (.com) are probably working on it.

What happened to that global warming that a lot of people talked about? Congrats and enjoy your new ride. Hopefully it is going to be less of a hate relationship and more love but then again it can't have been that bad with your 04 model since you have had it for nine years and done 115K. Looking forward to seeing some photos and getting first impressions of your new ride.

Max :-)

Great review, EJ, very well written, too bad it wasn't an ESA bike.

Thanks for taking the time to post your thoughts.

Best success on your decision making,

You sure about that? What is your source for that information? From what I've heard from the dealer and on ADV, LEDs were not approved at the time the GS LC went to initial inspection by DOT, but they are now approved. I'm pretty sure the bikes coming in April/May will have DRL's/LED's.

"But when one spends, or is ready to spend, almost $19k on a bike, it's only natural to expect everything to work perfectly, isn’t that so?

A $19,000 bike might look like a dirt-cheap bargain for a billionaire, but for the rest of the common guys this is a lot of money. Yes, it's more expensive than a lot of new cars out there, not to mention getting a used one. So again, for this money, the customers have all the reasons in the world to demand that their ride is flawless, in case the old laws of trade are still in place."

What utter tosh, I hear this argument being made all the time.
Well,I work for a billionaire, and when he buys a brand new 200 million dollar aeroplane, it's riddled with faults and things that need fixing. Complex machines and engineering are just that complex, and undiscovered issues arise all the time. It's how these issues are dealt with that sets manufactures apart.
I'd say in my experience BMW's quality control and handling of issues is first class.

Reminds me of my time in the merchant navy when we were "given" a new ship.

Took over 6 months to get it set up, working correctly and fix all the deckhead and bulkhead panels that vibrated and rattled when you were trying to sleep.

And just so you know, I wouldn't really trust this site. They tried to post prices for the new GS LC in November (when prices were not available anywhere in the world...), and the price was for camhead 2013's...
http://www.autoevolution.com/news/20...ces-51003.html

They are full of shit as far as I'm concerned
