Anything else you guys got done on your first services, or anything I've missed?
Is there a turbo option yet?

Maybe I spent too much time staring at my new GS before going to bed each night - I noticed that the cooling fins on the right cylinder was definitely deeper than those on the left.

See above. You cannot reset the A trip meter. It resets by itself overnight.

Is there no mention of this in your owner's manual?

Good eye. :) Not many people notice this.

You see one cylinder (the left as you are on the bike) is a bit further to the front than the other. To trick the eye and smoothen the difference, BMW has the fins a bit larger on the two cylinders, each on the opposite side.

Went night driving last night. The LED is way better than the lights on my old bike.
The normal dipped beam. It is as far as I've seen one LED with 2 reflectors. Based upon the angle you look at it you will see the upper part(seen from above) or the lower part or both.

Thanks all. I will have to stop switching on the ignition to look at the instruments with the sat nav.

Kidding right?

You realize that this bike has AFAIK 4 trip meters?

Anyway you must be joking and I didn't get it...

That's why you've been riding all day and had no time to post some pics of your new toy?

I have to admit it is a bit addictive.

Wow.

You must be kidding, but I didn't get it either.

There are essentially 4:
- Trip I
- Trip II
- Odometer
- Trip A (Automatic odometer; available on Computer Pro)

The Trip A auto resets at night, but Trip I AND Trip II are user resettable.

For those of you trying to catch up here, here's the link to the Rider's manual. The odometer info starts on page 44 of the US manual.

Go here:

http://www.bmw-motorrad.com/com/en/index.html

Select "Service" in the submenu under "Home"
Select "Rider's Manual" in the left nav
Select "R models"
Select "0A11 - R 1200 GS (USA)" under "R models K50"
