    As the owner of an R100GSPD and an R12GSA, this is an entertaining thread. I love my GSPD, but the GSA is sooooo much better in every way except weight. Although I do not personally see enough advantage to go buy one (the GSA has not felt underpowered to me), I am sure that the new bike will be better in many ways. I believe that the challenge for BMW with this bike will be that for the first time there are a few really competent competitors to the new bike. BMW brand loyalists will not be swayed, but the Triumph, Ducati, and Yamaha guys now have something in their own brand. I am hoping that BMW does what it always has done in this segment, and wows everybody with the new offering....Just my $0.02

    I'm curious what the valve stem looks like. That needs to be improved. More threads I hope.

    No... I'm just trying to poke some fun at some of the anal fixation on this thread. Sorry for the poor attempt at humor.

    Leaked from German accessories maker Wunderlich...
    The last one seems like an adventure version.

    Yuck. Typical Wonderlich, too much crap added.

    Fingers crossed they look better than that without all the crap on it.

    These pictures are fantasy. They even have the n the artist's signature on them, but you still got fooled!

    Actually these are a mix of reality with fantasy... Wunderlich said that these images are drawings made by a desinger BASED on the leaked photos of the new GS ... with that in mind we can assume the new GS will be similar to those pics but not exactly the same as shown...
