    So my wife took me to the dealership for my birthday and I came home with a new water boxer! Went on three rides tonight and I love this bike! I'll post some pictures whenever I'm allowed too! Happy Birthday to me!

    Well I've been lurking on different forums for a while and waiting until I got my GS to actually post. Today was the lucky day!

    When am I allowed to post attachments?

    Never. Attachments were disabled last January. See http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=919 for more info.

    Enjoy your new bike. I ordered one a couple of months ago. Hasn't shown up, yet. That's what happens when you're not satisfied with one of the standard packages.

    What a load of hog anus.

    You know the rules, people:

    NO pics = NO bike.

    I think his wife really bought him a 1984 Honda Spree.

    Word has it his new "Waterhead" really looks like this:

    Can't get the driving modes without getting ESA/ASC. And a semi-active suspension interests me. Supposedly it bears little relation to the earlier version of the same name. I'll find out when the bike arrives.

    I didn't want the stupid thumb wheel that comes with the GPS prep kit. I have enough GPS and will never, ever own a BMW branded Garmin. I ordered in effect the Premium package less GPS prep plus wire wheels.

    So...you rode to the desert, got off on the shoulder, snapped some pics that don't show a single speck of road scum on the bike? I don't even see tread marks in the dirt! Amazing!:lol3

    Actually I just pulled over on the way home. Haven't had a chance to ride anywhere exciting yet. Did you want me to take the picture in the middle of the street???
