The officers will be working, but the administrative staff are considered Non-essential, so yes, there will be delays until the government get's its crap together.

Those with GPS have noticed this?
(preferably not from the States because your laws are different)
A friend noticed that when he has the GPS connected on the bike, his daylight lights do not switch on and off based on ambient light intensity, but stay on from 30 min. before sunrise to 30 min. after sunset (!)... Which is the law over here AFAIK.

I've ridden a lot with the Nav IV and the lights still switch between DRL and headlamp automatically when going through tunnels or dark patches of road among the trees - I leave mine on auto mode all the time. In which country does your friend live?

Strange - EU should be harmonised... My headlamps were definitely coming on in low light in the middle of the day with the GPS in place. However it has had a software update since then (at the first service last week) so I'll plug in the GPS tomorrow on my way to work and have another look for you. There is even a convenient dark tunnel under some rail tracks 500m from my front door.

1200GSW mode settings

Hey guys, just got a new water boxer here in the shop.
Man this thing shreds on my 1150, go figure!!!

It is a standard model and as such doesn't have any of the fancy fly by wire stuff.
So what riding mode on the adjustable bikes corresponds with what this one is permanently set too?
Does it still have some form of traction control?
I know you can disable the anti-lock brakes.
So far I like it!

The auto setting on DRL works perfctly. Switching automatically in dusk or fog.

All 2013 and 2014 are fly-by-wire, even without the modes. 2014 always has at least two modes and ASC as supergs mentions above.

What's the actual true story on the white springs? Are the white ones better?

Different powder coating it seems... but BMW also appear to be using up stock of the black ones, my 2014 (built 22 Aug) has black springs.
