At the risk of getting flamed here what is going on (rumors) with the GS Adventure LC? I've seen the new straight GS but would love to hear about the Adventure other than next year you'll see.

Nobody knows, no official word from anybody but I guess one year from now we'll see it.

Personally I think they look seriously ugly and huge. They are nowhere near the bike or the exhaust.

Same here, but likes are subjective I guess (these adventure types - either true or fake - seem to like this... armor).

On another subject, boy are these turn signals ugly or are these turn signals UGLY?

+1. Definitely not a contender for those who can lane-split.

Both. For BMW it is factory.
It even says so.
Numbers on left "messwerte" are Motorrad. Numbers right "werksangaben" are factory numbers.

You can find dyno measure though published.

Look in the thread.
Here is one (I think it's a bit optimistic though).

Much better. Just goes to show, Touratech ain't the best at everything.

Yes those look far better. I wonder what Jesse will come up with. Their mounts are usually very neat.
