2014 GSW with my name on it

I put down a deposit on a 2014 R1200GS today. I'll get the first one inbound to Pensacola BMW/ Moto Guzzi.


Just thought I'd share that.

What oil do you guys use?

yeah...
Well good for you.

How'd ja equip it?

A package, or a la carte?

I like the a la carte option, if you can really do it that way.

For example, last years package whatever, might have all that I want, but also includes GPS prep and off road gnarly ride mode. I have no desire for GPS prep including the spinny wheel or off road gnarly ride mode.

So, how'd ja equip it.
When ya gonna get it?

Be sure to continually badger the dealer for SHIPPING information.

Your bike will most likely be leaving BREMERHAVEN.

Get the NAME of the ship and you can TRACK it all the way across the ATLANTIC...into port in NEW JERSEY!

And...a fellow inmate...DockingPilot...might be actually handling your bike into port.

Keeps us aprised when the 14's starting departing!

What is code 112? Are you saying that yours will be in Florida 4 weeks from build date?

I have a copy of a "vehicle inquiry" from my sales guy, it says actual production date: 8/16/13. Based on this, and what you're saying, should I expect it to me (Florida also) in less than 6 to 8 weeks?

Thanks,

Thanks,
Production Status Code 112 = Order scheduled for production

Between production codes 112 and 150 you will have a window during which you should be able to make changes to your order...

Status Code 150 denotes that the production has already started at the factory so no more changes to the original order are allowed...

Hope this helps.

Not a la carte, though they said I could if I wanted to. Doing that would put me at November/December delivery.
Mine (which is already built, I believe) is Fire Blue, with the technology package (ZTG) and Touring package (223).
I was told 6-8 weeks...

So, what's included in the Technology package for 2014?

Touring, I assume is cruise, bag mounts, and hand guards.

Congrats on the new bike - can't wait for my 2014 TE to arrive, order went in nearly 2 weeks ago and is expected around 3rd week of September due to spoked wheel and alarm options.

Re oil BMW Motorcycle Magazine's Fall 2013 issue has an interesting interview with Jens Staebe (BMW Motorrad Head of Technical Support and Warranty) about some riders reporting separation issues with the clutch (ie the clutch not engaging/disengaging as smoothly as it should). [Paraphrased]: The bike is sensitive to the type and correct level of oil and the only approved oil until further notice is Castrol Power 1 Racing SAE 5W-40 API SL/JASO MA2.
