    I would expect then pretty soon. I was at my dealer last weekend and he had received the luggage ( Vario ) for the bikes he has coming in the first round. Bags look the same but have a different mounting system.

    They are also different size from the previous ones...top case bigger in the non expanded mode and vice versa for the side cases. But this is supposed to be a picture thread for the new GS so we'll probably get booted over to the other thread. You guys know about the the sticky thread for the new GS, right?

    For some reason it look so much better in those pictures in real life situations than it does in BMW's brochure photos. If only there was a way to shave the side tines off of the "spork" the beak would be perfect. Oh well, I'm sure that there are people that like the angular F-117 look. Other than that man that bike looks awesome!

    How do you like the Tourance Next tires?

    No, I don't think so, the whole of the muffler is replaced when fitting the HP/Akra can, and they(AKRA) make no mention of it containing a cat.
