One of my favorite pics. Friends and I on the CDR.
Cool. I am a history buff. Thanks for the pic.
By the way. Nice bike. ;-)
Don't you love it when they do that?
After much deliberation, this '12 Triple Black replaced my trusty 07. After cresting 1100 miles, I'm often surprised how much better the camhead performance is. Not just down low, but the rocketlike top end.
Still. It's buzzier than the 07, and I have to sort out the front-wedge feeling of the seat. But every time I roll back up the driveway, I'm smiling so that says something.
Here are some spontaneous, horrible phone pics.
You call that a pass?
Are those seats standard on the 1200GS triple black in US? They look like GSA stock seats which I like because in the high setting there is less of a lip between rider and passenger.
What kind of lights are those with the red rings?
I am fairly certain the high ones are the Clearwater Krista's and the low ones are the Clearwater Glenda's. Nice setup!
Yep, those are GSA seats. Had them on the 07, which allowed me a more relaxed knee angle. They're a bit stiff, but the seat on the 07 'broke in' a bit after some miles. There seems to be more forward angle on the '12, I'm looking into raising the front 10mm or so.
I've found on my '10 GSA seat that yes, you do seem to lean forward. It's not recommended by BMW at all, but I put the front of the seat on high, back of the seat on low and found it balances it out much better. You also sit fractionally further back where the seat is wider... makes a lot of difference. As I said tho, BMW doesn't like you doing it at all, but I haven't had any issues.
I have new GSA seats on my GS. Mounting the seat this way keeps the weight off my nuts too.
Heh heh...Weight off nuts = PRICELESS!
