    I'm in, wet clutch pushed me over the fence. I'm supposed to get the first one at my favorite Houston dealer. Can't wait until the order forms are ready to be filled in and sent off to Munich.

    How the hell are you guys preordering?! My dealers at Blue Moon in Atlanta and Touring Sport in Greenville, SC haven't even mentioned pricing or preorders. I've been burning up their phone lines trying to get in line!:fitz

    I don't think anyone can order yet, it's just getting on your dealer's wait list.

    3. Profit

    Technically I guess as above, this is more a waitlist than pre-order.

    Looks like changing the alternator is gonna be a pretty big job... but it seems like clutches fail more often...

    Will the 2013 R1200GS need the tedious/ridiculous spline lube operation like the oilheads do?

    I agree, except for the instrument cluster. A work of art, it seems to blend german engineering, swiss watch crisp dials and italian style. Sweet.

    I must be in the minority here. I really like the looks of my current '12 GSA, and I love the looks of the new bike (except maybe the spork on the front). I'll own one in 2-3 years, once the GSA is out and they've ironed out the freshman bugs.

    I think so, and I imagine you still need to lube those. Not a big deal.

    No, I was talking about the transmission input splines that cause you to have to take the back of an oilhead apart to apply a dollars worth of grease.

    Driveshaft splines on oilheads are easily accessible by comparison.
