I think he said it will take a few days. :(
(since he is busy actually riding the thing for a living)

Also awaiting the next part. But from what I've read I don't regret ordering one.

Maybe he's trying to figure out a diplomatic way to say the front end feels like a paint shaker without offending BMW ....afterall Rawhyde is an Official BMW training center. I don't know Shawn and I'm sure he's a standup guy, but not sure that we can expect a completely unbiased review.

Well I am sure if he felt it he WILL mention it some way.

And his opinion is valuable being an off-road guy (ain't he?).

Oh, I'm not suggesting he'll hide the shake issue if he had it, but just not sure that he will be free to give a 100% objective opinion on the entirety of the bike since he is affiliated with BMW.

Great Update

Hey Shawn. I saw the new GS at the Vancouver bike show two weeks ago, so your review was an excellent overview. Look forward to hearing how it performs.

I have signed up for a Rawhyde course March 22. I might catch up with you there if you are instructing that weekend.
